Soldiers can now roll up sleeves along with other servicemembers

 Soldiers across the Army are now permitted to roll up their sleeves, just as Marines, sailors and airmen do.
 
The policy change, approved on Tuesday by Army Chief of Staff Gen. Mark Milley, followed overwhelmingly positive feedback from soldiers who took part in a 10-day trial at Fort Hood, Texas, that ended Sunday.
 
A memorandum on the policy change says that commanders may immediately authorize rolled sleeves for soldiers wearing the Army Combat Uniform in the Universal Camouflage Pattern, Operational Camouflage Pattern or Operation Enduring Freedom Camouflage Pattern. Sleeves will be rolled neatly with the camo facing out no more than 3 inches above the elbow; sleeves may be down and cuffed during field training exercises, according to the memorandum.
 
Soldiers haven’t been allowed to roll their sleeves since the Battle Dress Uniform was replaced in 2005.
