Marines to allow troops to wear KIA bracelets

Tuesday, October 18th, 2011

WASHINGTON (AP) — The commandant of the Marine Corps is changing the rule that bans troops from wearing bracelets commemorating friends killed in action, settling a flap that has roiled some in the force.

Marine Corps spokesman Capt. Gregory Wolf says that Marine Gen. James Amos plans to announce on Tuesday that Marines can wear the KIA bracelets, usually thin rubber or metal bands bearing the names of the fallen.

The bracelets technically have been prohibited under uniform regulations that limit the amount and kinds of jewelry that troops can wear while on duty.

Right now, some commanders allow the bracelets and some don’t. Wolf says Amos has decided to lift the ban and will put out a statement on it soon.
