    I know there is nothing about that in my P&P manual!!! But I would definitely go uniform, unless told otherwise by my department. It's shows a sense of brotherhood and respect (in my opinion).
    Life's too short for regrets...

    I can learn something from anyone, even if it's what not to do...

      OP- I'm so sorry for your loss, and may you be comforted in your friend's outstanding service.

      That said; Wear your uniform for him. Salute with loving pride, and remember him the same way. "FTO" should have no bearing on this whatsoever.....
      Just another squirrel, tryin' to get a nut......

        In that case I would make sure I asked the boss.

        I never passed up the chance to write a policy that reflected MY preferences on how to handle a particular situation. If your chief thinks enough of your opinion to ask you to put it into policy -----that advantage of that confidence!
        Since some people need to be told by notes in crayon .......Don't PM me with without prior permission. If you can't discuss the situation in the open forum ----it must not be that important

        My new word for the day is FOCUS, when someone irritates you tell them to FOCUS

          If other Marines are present please ensure your uniform is inspection ready and that you are able to properly stand at attention, parade rest and know how to salute. If not just wear a suit. The other Marines will with ease notice any and all errors in uniforms and drill.

          The purpose of wearing your uniform is to show respect to your buddy, a sloppy uniform and poor drill isn't.

            He’s already just volun-told me to write one on a much more complex subject that I knew nothing about, but now I know more about than anyone else at my dept., and when I'm finished with that one…

            Good people sleep peaceably in their beds at night only because rough men stand ready to do violence on their behalf.

              Sans policy prohibiting such a thing, I would go in uniform. If it is against I would go to the chief and request a waiver.
              It could be that the purpose of your life is only to serve as a warning to others.
