Changing it up

Story and photos by SN Carey

Students from the Navy Detachment, Fort Meade, Md. participated in a dress whites inspection. The inspection was to ensure that all Sailors have the proper uniform ready to wear as the summer dress uniform, beginning April 26.

Shiny shoes, creased trousers, correct ribbons and good haircuts are a few of the items that Chief Mass Communication Specialist Jason Carter, the Detachment Leading Chief Petty Officer, meticulously looked over during the inspection. Overall we had an outstanding passing rate, with only a few minor discrepancies that were quickly brought up to par.

It’s now time to hang up the dress blue uniform and change it up to the dress whites for the summer time. Great job Shipmates!

Long hours are put into shining each shoe.
