Air Force holds 100th uniform board meeting

JOINT BASE SAN ANTONIO-RANDOLPH, Texas (AFNS) — The 100th meeting of the Air Force Uniform Board convened this month to review ideas and recommendations submitted by Airmen in order to improve or change Air Force uniforms, wear policy and grooming standards.

The April 17-28 board session is also the Air Force’s third virtual uniform board, or VUB. Until 1994, boards were held quarterly. The board stood down from 1994 to 1999, and then held sessions as needed. Now, uniform boards typically convene every three to four years at the direction of the Air Force chief of staff.

“VUBs capitalize on technology and save temporary-duty expenses by providing board members access to board information at their home duty stations,” said Master Sgt. Larry Anderson, the NCO in charge of uniform board support. “Board members sign in, review the original suggestion and advisors’ inputs, discuss the suggestion with other board members via an open forum collaboration area and then cast their votes, automating what was once established as a face-to-face Air Force Uniform Board.”
