I was commissioned in June of 1957 and as an officer had to buy my own uniforms. I was scheduled to go on active duty in November and I remember going to the Ft. Hamilton PX to buy all of my uniforms including fatigues, summer and winter uniforms as well as dress blues. We got a small uniform allowance, but I remember being shocked by the cost. I did use them again while in the reserves from November 1959 to November 1965.
