WASHINGTON (NNS) -- The Chief of Naval Personnel (CNP) announced July 11 a change to uniform regulations giving commanding officers discretion to authorize the wear of command ball caps with Navy Working Uniforms (NWU) Type I, II and III beginning Sept. 1.

Initiated by Secretary of the Navy Ray Mabus, this change is a result of Sailor feedback received at all hands calls and is part of Navy's efforts to further empower command triads.

Currently ball caps can only be worn with the physical training uniform, coveralls and flight suits; with NWUs only when standing bridge watch and by command training teams during a training evolution.

The 8-point cover remains part of a Sailor's sea bag.

The change in wear rules for the ball caps, which will include Fleet leadership input, will be released in a NAVADMIN later this summer and will include occasion of wear rules.

Sailors can provide feedback on uniforms to umo_cmc@navy.mil or usnpeople@gmail.com.
