SCHRIEVER AIR FORCE BASE, Colo. -- Though the weather outside is frightful, cold weather uniform violations could make Schriever Air Force Base less than delightful. No fear, base leadership wants to ensure Team Schriever members aren't left out in the cold in the wrong uniform item.

According to Air Force Instruction 36-2903 Dress and Personal Appearance of Air Force Personnel, installation commanders may supplement the dress and personal appearance instruction with guidance specific to the installation.

For 50th Space Wing personnel, the sage green fleece may be worn indoors while in immediate work areas only; it does not include dining facilities or auditoriums.

If a violation is spotted, it is everyone's responsibility to respectfully correct the situation.
