Cover for Army DS?
My fiance is an NCO in the Army Reserves and is currently mobilized and serving as a Drill Sergeant for a year in another state. His mobilization will have ended by the time we get married next August, but he'll still be in his DS mos. I really want him to wear his ASUs for the ceremony, but he's not crazy about the idea. We came to the agreement that he and his groomsmen would wear them for the ceremony and then could change into tuxes for the reception if they decide they want to do that closer to the date. It's an August wedding in FL, so they're mostly just worried about the heat. The other day he brought up the issue of his DS cover though. He says the DS "brown round" is his authorized cover right now so he doesn't know if he can wear his cap or beret instead... And he is not the type to try to actually find out and has pretty much left it to me to find out if I really care about the cover, which I kind of do. I'm incredibly proud of him being a DS, but I'm really not crazy about wedding pictures with the brown round, it just gives off such a gruff, hardcore vibe. Does anyone know where I can find the specific rules on authorized cover, or have any ideas? If it truly is the only cover he'll be authorized at that time, then I'll deal with it, but if there is another option, I'd like to know. I don't even want to broach the "can cover come off for pictures" subject as he is incredibly strict about uniform regulation, and I am in complete agreement with him on that one.
