JOINT BASE PEARL HARBOR-HICKAM, Hawaii -- Chief of Staff Gen. Mark A. Welsh III asked his major command commanders on Nov. 29th to decide which uniform their Airmen will wear in order to better perform their mission.

Upon receiving the CSAF guidance, Pacific Air Forces Commander General Herbert "Hawk" Carlisle, announced that blues are no longer mandated on Mondays and that uniform wear in PACAF will be at the discretion of the wing and numbered air force commanders.

"The NAFs and other staffs may set the uniform policy for their respective headquarters," he said in an email to the PACAF commanders. "For the PACAF Headquarters, blues will not be mandated on Mondays; uniform selection will be commensurate with the expected duty that day, or as directed by the workplace supervisors."
