Army fashion police
HONOLULU, HAWAII- The Army fashion police is on patrol at a base in Hawaii cracking down on attire that's deemed inappropriate.
A fashion "Courtesy Patrol" is operating at Schofield Barracks looking for short-shorts,bare midriffs, visible underwear, sagging pants and swim wear other than at the pool.
The teams are also looking for uniformed soldiers committing violations such as walking and talking on a cell phone and not extending proper courtesies.
The patrols have authority to "verbally detain" soldiers but have no authority over civilians.
The Army says a similar crackdown on "revealing, offensive and unkempt" off-duty attire is also going on at posts in the Continental U.S.
