This is an especially needed service for Marines and Sailors who are forward deployed. I'm so glad this will soon be available.

VIRGINIA BEACH, Va. (NNS) -- Beginning June 11, Navy and Marine uniforms that require embroidered items can be purchased with those items already sewn on through the Navy Exchange’s Uniform Support Center.

The initiative provides Sailors and Marines with the option to order uniforms ready–to-wear with nametapes, warfare, collar devices and rating badges already sewn on. The Navy Exchange’s everyday low price applies to all embroidery items purchased.

“With the expansion of the e-commerce business initiative, we are able to improve the level of convenience and service to our Sailors,” said Cmdr. Mark Friermood, director of the Navy Uniform Program. “Giving our customers the option of ordering uniforms that are ready-to-wear when they are received provides a much needed service, especially for those who are forward-deployed.”

According to Navy Exchange officials, uniform items requiring embroidery will be processed and shipped within 48 hours of being ordered. Regular shipping is free, with delivery taking 10–14 days in the United States. Express shipping is also available for an additional fee.
