BABY BLUE MARINES

Most Unique Marine Uniform!

“The most unique of Marine uniforms was reserved for men

discharged for undesirability. Regulations required that

personnel so discharged be provided with a uniform to return home

(enlisted men were not allowed to possess civilian clothes).

All

services provided standard uniforms without insignia, all except

the Marines. Called ‘Baby Blue Marines’, these individuals were

provided a light blue version of the winter service uniform and

garrison cap.

The coat pockets lacked pleats and other

refinements, and had plain buttons.”
