American Sladists:

I have a writing question. If a member of the U.S. Air Force is killed in action (now, not during WWII), and some brass come around in uniform to break the bad news to his relatives (one of whom served in the armed forces, too), what color of uniform would the brass wear?

Blue? (My guess).
Khaki?

Also, can you give me a brief description of it, or a link to a photo.

Thanks,

Slade

The dress uniform, I would assume, which it blue. I have just been told that the Army would use full dress in that situation, so it probably a good guess.


But I have a link:



I't huge and will take some time going through it, so I welcome anyone else searching through it, too.

I'll get started... :)

Also it may be here:

Composition of Notification Team

Member's commander or a designated representative (whenever possible, a field grade officer of equal or higher grade than the deceased).


Chaplain and medical representative (doctor, nurse, or medical technician), if available.


Must be sensitive to the timeliness of effecting notification when organizing the team


Don't delay making notification if there is difficulty locating a chaplain or medical representative


Average notification time is 4 hours; however, locality of NOK and accuracy of the member's emergency information play a significant role in length of time involved with notification


Commander may ask a close friend of the member's family to accompany him or her, or the team, provided it does not delay the notification
----------------------------------------------------------------------------------
The current U.S. Air Force uniform, adopted in 1993 and standardized in 1995, consists of a three-button, pocketless coat, similar to that of a men's "sport jacket" (with silver "U.S." pins on the lapels), matching trousers, and either a service cap or garrison cap, all in "Air Force Blue." This is worn with a light blue shirt and necktie in the same color as the coat and trousers. Enlisted members wear sleeve insignia on both the jacket and shirt, while officers wear metal rank insignia pinned onto the coat, and Air Force Blue slide-on loops on the shirt. Air Force personnel assigned to honor guard duties wear, for dress occasions, a modified version of the standard service dress uniform, but with silver trim on the sleeves and trousers, with the addition of medals, sword belt, and a silver shoulder cord.

Between 1993 and 1995, officers had Navy/Coast Guard-style rank rings on the coat, but this was replaced with sewn-on epaulets with the rank insignia, with "welts" in the same color as the coat being worn on the sleeves, a distinctive item adopted from the U.S. Army. Prior to 1993, all Air Force personnel wore Air Force Blue uniforms nearly identical in appearance to that of the U.S. Army, which in fact, influence the current uniform regulations of the Army when it replaced its WWII/Korean-era olive drab uniforms with the modern-day "Army Green" uniforms of the Cold War era.

For combat and work duty, ground crews wear standard battle dress uniform, which are currently being phased out in favor of an Air Force version of the Marine's MARPAT uniform, while pilots and air crews wear olive green or tan one-piece flight suits made of nomex for fire protection.

Women's uniforms, which has changed little since its introduction in the late 1950's, generally is identical in appearance to that of the uniforms worn by women officers in the U.S. Army.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------

You're correct about the blue, Slade. The USAF dress uniform and the utility uniforms are, for the most part, blue.

Keep in mind, as stated above, the rank of the notification officer should be of equal, or greater rank, than the deceased service member.
So, the higher the rank of the deceased, the higher the rank of the notification officer.

Here's a picture of a rather serious looking fellow in his USAF dress blues:

Hope that helps!

Joe says it would be blue. The Air Force got rid of khaki a few years back, as he recalls.
What if the Hokey Pokey IS what it's all about?
