11 In Uniform Rules Every Military Spouse Should Know

Recently the subject of guys and breakups came up and Sabrina and I went back and forth about what guys generally go through when they breakup. Simple enough to say, but I know plenty of women will talk about how some guy came off like an insensitive jackass after the relationship fell apart because of his actions post-breakup. If a guy is profoundly obnoxious or terrible after a breakup, it is most often a testament to how rough the breakup was on him. Some people cope by lashing out. Jerry Seinfeld once said that breaking up a relationship needs to be like taking off a Band-aid — One motion: In the same regard, when a relationship ends, it is much much harder for a guy to go back and discuss and revisit and talk through and explain, etc. Personally, I have had breakups where I pretty much went cold. I wanted her to be OK, I wanted good things for her in life, but I knew that nothing was going to make the situation better. No discussion was going to fix things, no clarity was to be had — it would have just been an emotional toilet for both of us. I realize it probably came off jerky, but when I cut off communication, my heart is in the right place.

When the Reichsheer was established in as Germany’s first national army [5] Litzen were prescribed as the universal collar device for all personnel other than generals, and the Third Reich continued the practice. Officers’ M35 Litzen Dress Field and service On the dress tunic Waffenrock and the later “ornamented” uniform, the Litzen were embroidered in fine aluminum thread on a patch of Abzeichentuch in the wearer’s Waffenfarbe , or branch color; the backing also showed through in the space between the two Litzen, the Mittelstreife.

On field and service uniforms, beginning in late , the patch Patten was dark bottle-green to match the collar; the Waffenfarbe “showed through” in fact colored cord was sewn into the center strip of each braid, the Litzenspiegel. For enlisted men service Litzen were machine-woven in silver-grey rayon; officers’ were embroidered more elaborately in white silk or aluminum thread, and were somewhat larger to match their higher collars.

NCOs’ M35 Litzen and Tresse Dress Field Non-commissioned officers Unteroffiziere wore standard enlisted collar patches but were distinguished by a strip of 9mm silver-grey diamond-woven rayon braid Tresse sewn around the collar’s front and lower edges, except on the dress Waffenrock where the Tresse was bright aluminum and encircled the collar’s upper edge.

Enlisted field Litzen By the fast-growing Heer had found that it was impractical, for the enlisted field uniform, to manufacture and stock a multitude of collar patches in assorted Waffenfarben which also had to be sewn on and frequently changed by unit tailors.
