WHERE TO PURCHASE
Only Army veterans who are honorably discharged can purchase Army uniforms. With proof, such as DD Form 214, veterans are entitled to purchase class A uniforms (including accessories), footwear and undergarments through an Army Military Clothing Sales Store. Veterans can also call the Army and Air Force Exchange Service toll-free at 1-888-768-3204 to order uniforms by phone. Other Army veterans may contact an Army installation’s Adjutant staff to request exceptions.
Navy and Marine Corps
Navy veterans and former Marines can call the Navy-Marine Corps Uniform Program in Chesapeake, Virginia at 1-800-368-4088 to begin the process of purchasing appropriate dress uniforms. Other uniforms are not authorized. They will be asked to provide their DD Form 214 in advance of receiving the uniforms in the mail. Alternatively, veterans can use their DD Form 214 to gain admittance to Navy or Marine Corps Exchanges for the express purpose of purchasing uniforms for ceremonial wear.
Veterans honorably discharged or separated from the Air Force under honorable conditions are permitted to buy selected uniform items authorized for active duty personnel from AF Military Clothing Sales Stores (MCCS) at 1-800-527-2345-Option #1 after obtaining permission from the installation commander or his/her representative. This authorization is restricted to unique uniforms and accessory items required for a specific occasion; that is, to be sold to separated personnel needing a blue dress uniform. The veteran must present discharge papers and other identification to the MCSS representative at the time of purchase as required by the installation commander.
