####How do Soldiers recommend changes to uniform policy?

*Soldiers should submit a DA Form 2028 with full justification. The form must be endorsed through the chain of command (ACOM/ASSC/DRU level) to the Army G-1 for significant changes.

*Decisions on uniform policies are completed through a board process after full legal review.

*The Army's process of changing any item of an Army uniform (to include how items are worn) allows a thorough review before implementing any permanent changes.
