So I thought about it and decided to send the picture in along with a few questions for my brother Jarheads, but I won’t dare ask this of my sister Jarheads. Does your uniform still fit you? The other night the wife and I were going through some clothes in the attic for AM Vets and I came across this blouse. Not sure why now but I did not keep a lot of my dress uniforms. Stupid, I know but it’s too late
now. I did keep one short sleeve and one long sleeve blouse and all of my cammies, which have long since rotted away. I gave away all the rest of my uniforms except the wool overcoat and rain coat but my nephew asked if he could borrow them for a Halloween party years ago and the sh-thead claimed he lost them. Man, was I ever p-ssed. Anyway, my wife suggested I try the blouse on and told me to give her a “tough guy” pose and before I could finish getting ready she snapped the picture. We took one where I actually got all the buttons made but it was unbecoming to say the least. I’m 54 now and somewhere around 190 lbs, but I can’t understand why it does not fit because I was 180 lbs when I got out in 1985 but of course I was fairly solid and in shape then. Ahhhh the good ole days! I nearly hurt myself taking the blouse off due in part to my bad shoulders. I wish I least had a barracks cover or p-ss cutter to put on my big-azs bald head. Can’t wear a high and tight anymore. Best I could do with a bald head is a low and loose. There’s a guy I work with who never served in the military who wears a high and tight. Cruel joke huh?
