The thread on Aviation Working Greens that is up got some discussion going in Chat. We brainstormed trying to think of the proper format for how to state the case that there are many Naval Aviators & NFO's, both active, reserve and retired that would like to see the AWG's stay as an "optional" uniform. Without digressing into a discussion of what hat or trousers are OK, and things of that nature, what would be the best way to respectfully approach the issue. While random JOs wearing the AWGs may get awareness out there, it probably will not attract the right kind of attention with those who have the power to change it. What I think the goal of the letter, for an end state should be, is to allow the AWG's to stay as an approved alternate uniform. Just like they are now. Reasons to keep them: History Professional looking working uniform Nobody is forced to buy/wear them. Just personal preference. Obstacles to keeping them: Being a working uniform, hard to justify for much else in todays Navy besides SDO. The SWOs do not like Aviators having Aviator-Only uniforms. Cost of maintaining full seabag. Even though it is OPTIONAL. The thought was to write the letter to the history of the existing AWGs, observe that nobody is forced to buy them, but there are some who like them, and like having the option to wear them, and would like to keep a Naval Aviation tradition alive. As many of you have seen, I can't write for shit. I need ideas/help. Be it on writing, advising me on proper protocol to follow so I don't piss in someones wheaties accidentally, and so on.
