U.S. Public Health Service Official Clarifies Stance On Uniforms

We got an e-mail this morning from Lt. Cmdr. Kyle Lyons of the U.S. Public Health Service, asking that we straighten out a mess we created with our post on sweaters and windbreakers Monday.

Lyons says we missed his intention: The newsletter item we picked up on was only aimed at reminding Commissioned Corps officers that they shouldn’t be seen in public wearing shirt sleeves. It wasn’t, he said, a directive to always don a sweater or windbreaker in 100-degree heat.

And Lyons also stressed that Corps officers have another alternative: the Service Dress Jacket. For a detailed guide on the uniforms of the Public Health Service, check this out. [Copyright 2011 National Public Radio]
