As a recruit you are issued your "main" uniforms from the Supply Officer. You are required to purchase the other items. Please purchase the following:


For Dress Uniforms:

1. A white t-shirt (a heavy one that will look good, nothing that a person can see through)

2. Black socks

3. Black dress shoes (rounded toe and no stitching on the toe) Corframs are not authorized for wear by cadets. They are mainly for office wear and are known to melt in the sun and cause foot injuries. Plus you don't get the joy of shining them!! (Click here for retailers).

1. Brown shirt (buy this from an actual military surplus store)

2. Black boots (any type is authorized)
