I was recently selected and attending WOCS in May. Since they give you the WOC rank to wear during the course, do I need to buy new ACU's with Velcro or replace my sew on rank with Velcro patches to accommodate the WOC rank?
Also do any recent graduates know if they are wearing the black PT's there yet? Don't want to be the only guy standing there in the new PT's.
the only WOC tabs they have are velcro so you will need to replace yours. whether you want to opt to buy all new uniforms or just replace the velcro is up to you though.
there will be 4 WOC tab changes while you are there (all white, snowbird, black WOC and gold WOC) and you wont have time to get them sewn on every time.
My class all had the old PTs, but a class that started when i was graduating had one person wearing the black ones. it was the same in WOBC, ones and twos. you are definitely authorized to wear them but you will stand out a little.

Congrats! I'll see you there in May. I'm guessing you're in class 15-15. I'm bringing the old PTs. I know a few people have the new ones. Our Primary TAC said both are authorized, but like DLJewell said, only a few people will probably be wearing the new PTs.
Yup we're in the same class. I was watching some of the class videos on Youtube and saw everyone wearing assault packs and camelbaks but neither are on the packing list. Do you know if we're issued them when we in-processes HHC?
