Does anyone have a source for USMC MARPAT cammies? We only got issued one set of desert this weekend and I have a feeling that if we go to Iraq, thats all we'll be getting. Please IM a link or phone # to me. And please don't be a dumbass and bring up this stupid debate again...

I MEF CG has already said that we are to wear tri-colors only, its even in the I MEF packing list. Your not suppose wear your MCCUUs in SWA right now, all you can see around here is the non-division guys run around in them and everyone of them I ask, doesn't know that their not suppose to wear them.

When I talk to one of the Regimental Commanders out in I MarDiv about packing lists, his statement was "Digitals can be brought, but they are not to be worn." he added "don't be seen in them"

Thats strange. Why the hell would the Corps spend the time/money on them when they don't even plan on Marines wearing them in combat? WTF?

It was a great idea to have every Marine required to own 2 sets of Desert MCCUUs, getting away from the royal pain in the ass getting the correct sizes from CTEP. However, it was some poor planing, not enough of the MCCUUs in stock to replace the tri-colors in the system, also the realization that having a seperate pattern on the joint battle field isn't good.

Oh well. I still think it's ridiculous. I guess it will be a little cheaper/easier to get the tri-colors then. Thanks!

There was just a revision sent out via Email, MCCUU are now authorized by I MEF for use in the CENTCOM AO.
