Do green side corpsmen still get the option to go marine reg and wear the green and khaki uniform?
Corpsmen who opt for Marine regs and maintain Marine Corps uniform and fitness standards (PFT vs PRT) are authorized to wear all of the Marine Corps service uniforms to include Service Alphas. They do not wear any Marine dress uniforms (aka dress blues). I know several corpsmen who go Marine regs and I know several corpsmen who don't because they don't want to cut their hair.
Wait...I could see this being hilarious. How much does this end up pissing off other Marines?
It doesn't, we fucking LOVE our Corpsmen. They're nothing more than extra gay Marines in our eyes.
But seriously, they care for us medically, and fight alongside us, its an honor we bestow upon them because they EARNED it. Semper Fi to all the Docs.
