Universal Headwear - False Rumors Printer friendly page | Send this story to a friend
Posted on Friday, October 25, 2013 - 09:20 AM EST

FROM:  Headquarters Marine Corps, Public Affairs
ISSUE:  Uniform Board #213 (Universal Headwear) Media Reporting

BACKGROUND: DoD (DoN) charged the Corps (and other services) with looking into universal headwear.  Last week, the uniform board sent out a survey, through the chain of command, that sought the opinion of Marines on universal covers, multiple braids for females and Supplemental Allowance Changes.  Someone leaked/provided the survey to the NY post and the post subsequently queried our press section yesterday afternoon on the universal cover.  Upon consulting with the uniform board, we provided the following
answer:
"There is currently an ongoing survey underway asking Marines about their preferences on which type of cover they prefer. The results of the survey will assist the uniform board in making the final decision."  This morning a sensational story tying the decision directly to the POTUS ran in the NY Post (attached).  Other outlets like Fox News and Vanity Fair reported that the Marine Corps is changing the cover and that it may cost $8 million.  I
notified Fox of the facts to correct the record.   On our twitter handles,
we reiterated that the project was in the examination stages and being considered.  Also notified OSD PA of our actions.

DISCUSSION: Media interest in this topic is much higher than anticipated.
Because it involves conflict, prominence, sex, oddity, and suspense - it sells advertising. Many media outlets are simply reporting the NY Post story while others are asking DivPA for additional information. This issue has taken a political tone as the Post reported that President Obama was somehow the root cause of the change. We continue to press with the following statement in subsequent queries:  "The Marine Corps conducts, on average, quarterly assessments of uniform standards and provides their recommendations to the commandant of the Marine Corps for final approval.
The aim of the Marine Corps Uniform Board is to balance the individual Marine's need for 'best value' clothing in terms of practicality, quality and cost within realistic supply, support and fiscal constraints to ensure the Marine Corps maintains functional, traditional and distinctive uniforms.
We are currently assessing the utility of a universal cover that men and women Marines can wear. Personal opinion surveys for active duty and reserve Marines are in progress and we expect a decision to be made next month."

RECOMMENDATION: Aggressively disseminate 3 key facts:

1. The President in no way, shape or form directed the Marine Corps to change our uniform cover.

2. We are looking for a new cover for our female Marines for one overriding reason:  the former manufacturer went out of business.

3. The Marine Corps has zero intention of changing the male cover.

Please disseminate information as widely as possible.

Marine Corps Scholarship Foundation: Remembering Beirut After 30 Years Printer friendly page | Send this story to a friend
Posted on Wednesday, October 23, 2013 - 05:40 PM EST

On October 23, 1983, terrorists bombed the Marine barracks in Beirut, Lebanon, killing 250 service members—220 of them Marines. This event marked one of the deadliest days in the Marine Corps’ long history. In response to this tragedy, the Marine Corps Scholarship Foundation took swift action, providing 102 treasury note certificates of $10,000 each to the children of all fallen service members that day, no matter their parent’s branch of service. This investment, worth over $1,500,000 today, helped many of them secure a brighter future for their families through education.

Six Marine four-star generals confer in the historic "Home of the Commandants" in Washington, D.C. on April 19, 2013.

It is historical that there are six four star Generals in the USMC.  However, that number is dwindling again and may be back to four as of June of this year when General Mattis retires.

According to General James Mattis, “It was a bunch of friends who started out as second lieutenants. We never thought we would end up as four stars. It is the surprise and twists and turns of life.”

First Black Marines Receive Congressional Gold Medal Printer friendly page | Send this story to a friend

The first African Americans to join the Corps during World War II, the Montford Point Marines, received the Congressional Gold Medal during a ceremony at the U.S. Capitol in Washington, D.C., June 27. Nearly 400 surviving Montford Point Marines attended the medal presentation, and Gen. James F. Amos, Commandant of the Marine Corps, hosted a parade in their honor at Marine Barracks Washington, D.C., June 28. "They answered our nation's call despite our society being deeply divided along racial lines," said Amos. "To me, they were heroic for two reasons: they fought against the enemy during World War II while they also fought for their civil rights and the respect of their fellow Americans." Named after the segregated training facility in Jacksonville N.C., the Marines who served at Montford Point are a part of the rich legacy of the Corps. The Congressional Gold Medal is the highest civilian honor that can be bestowed by Congress.
