This article presents the author's view about the uniform of the U.S. Navy. The author said that the dungaree uniform beat the ugly new utility uniform that was issued in boot camp. He do not think it would be stretching the truth to say that at least 80% of Navy enlisted men abandoned the utility uniform after boot camp graduation. The author liked the dungarees a lot and switching them for khaki was the only downside to making chief. Khaki showed din too easily and that was bad for people in Engineering.
