There are a number of warning bells here that should tell anyone that this
is absolute nonsense. Anyone should stop after "rumor" and know that
99.999999% of all rumors have absolutely no basis in fact.
Even a slight application of common sense should tell you that nobody can
tell anybody not to wear their uniform! Suggest maybe, recommend perhaps,
but, a "ruling" no way, can't be done.
As anyone who knows me even slightly can tell you, I am far from a uniform
freak, but, I and my boys have always, and will continue to wear our
uniforms while traveling.
Wherever does this nonsense originate?
