Occasions For Wear

 

NWU wear is authorized for commuting and all normal task and associated stops (e.g. stops at child care, gas stations, off-base shopping, banking, DMV and dining) before, during and after the workday.  NWUs are not a liberty uniform.  Consumption of alcohol while off-base in NWUs is not permitted.  The area or regional commander may further restrict uniform policies within their geographical limits regarding wear of the NWUs.

 

Within the National Capital Region (NCR) the NWU is authorized for wear at all locations with the exception of inside the pentagon building, national mall area bounded by capitol hill and surrounding senate and house staff offices, the white house and executive office building, state department and all monuments and memorials.  Wear while in metro, public transportation and slug lines outside the pentagon is authorized.  NWU wear is authorized in office environments at headquarters staffs outside these NCR areas.  NWU is authorized for all Navy recruiting command recruiters in the continental United States (CONUS), Hawaii and Guam (e.g. malls, schools, normal recruiting areas).
