There are quite a few social media pages filled with angry Marines right now. Why? All because of an umbrella.
According to Marine Corps rules (regulation MCO P1020.34F, to be precise), male Marines are not permitted to carry umbrellas while in uniform.
There are apparently no exceptions to the rule, not even for the commander in chief, without the permission of the Commandant of the Marine Corps.
According to The Marine Corps Uniform Regulations, "No officer or official shall issue instructions which conflict with, alter, or amend any provision without the approval of the Commandant of the Marine Corps."
Do you think the President could have handled a little drizzle or did he need to make 2 Marines break their uniform code?
