2.  NWU Type III and Navy Flight Suit wear in the NCR is restricted as 
follows:
a.  NWU Type III.  The NWU Type III wear is prohibited inside the Pentagon, 
the Pentagon Library and Conference Center (PLC2), the National Mall area 
bounded by Capitol Hill and surrounding Senate and House Staff offices, the 
White House and Executive Office building, Department of State and all 
monuments and memorials, unless specifically authorized for a Joint Task 
Force National Capital Region (JTF-NCR) mission.  Additionally, the NWU Type 
III is prohibited from being worn off Department of Defense (DoD) 
installations and facilities before, during or after the workday, for routine 
stops or to conduct business.  Stops off DoD bases or installations, while in 
the NWU Type III, are authorized for emergency reasons only.  The NWU Type 
III may be worn as the alternate uniform of the day per commanding officer or 
officer-in- charge permission on DoD installations, commands and facilities 
within the NCR other than the restricted areas established above.
Personnel authorized to wear the NWU Type III as the alternate uniform of the 
day may travel to and from home and work in privately owned vehicles or 
government conveyance while wearing the uniform.
