Deadline Approaching for Alternate Combination Cover Wear Date

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts


WASHINGTON (NNS) -- The Oct. 31 deadline for wear of the Alternative Combination Cover (ACC) is approaching and Navy leaders want to remind all officers and chiefs to acquire that cover or the current combination cover by that date.

The deadline for wear was announced last October in NAVADMIN 236/15, which detailed the plan to redesign several uniform elements for Sailors that improve uniformity across the force, as well as improve fit and function of the uniforms. This policy phased out the female "bucket" cover and mandated the ACC and the current combination cover for wear by both men and women. Wear-tests and Sailors' feedback were incorporated into the final designs that were announced.

Since the release of that message, the ACC has been available for purchase in Navy Exchange (NEX) Uniform Stores and through the call center. 

The ACC and combination cover for officers and chiefs can be worn by both men and women in service and dress uniforms. 

Based on availability in the NEX, Sailors are advised to make their purchase now to avoid any issues that would prevent them from having the cover in time for the wear date.
