For most enlisted Sailors, active or reserve, maintaining a tip top set of uniforms and consistently maintaining above average grooming standards is a visual cue to supervisors & the chain of command that you are dedicated to your career. This will help your evaluations and also commands respect at your command. Sailors who want to take it a step above and beyond should strive to be knowledgeable about regulations, standards and the history of awards and uniforms.
Navy Task Force Uniform (linked below) provides the latest regulation news that you may want to keep an eye on. The Navy is more keen these days on soliciting input from enlisted Sailors so if you are asked to provide input please do. This will ensure that you have a say in the quality and design of your uniform you will wear.
It's true when they say a picture is worth a thousand words. With that said, The Navy has available photos of Sailors wearing the latest uniforms. Not only should you take a peek (the link is located on this page) but if you are in charge of Sailors, you should have them look at those pictures too. When your Sailors look good, you look good!
