'Uneasy' would be the word to describe my feeling when seeing Mike in this uniform for the first time. Given that I never imagined Mike would be a Marine, I guess that makes sense. But now that I see him in his gear every day, it's become a normal thing. In fact, Junah is getting used to it, too. There are Marines all over this place, so every time Junah sees someone in their fatigues, he goes crazy thinking it's his daddy.
Here, Mike is dressed in one of his work-day uniforms. They have so many, though. I'll try to take some pictures of him in the others as well. In fact, just recently Mike was fitted for his "Dress Blues." It's the most formal uniform they have. It's the one with the dark jacket, blue pants and white hat and gloves - the equivalent to a civilian's tuxedo. We'll be going to a Marine Corps Birthday Ball in a couple of weeks where he'll be able to wear it for the first time. I'll definitely post some pictures so you'll be able to see how handsome he looks!
