    With our new uniforms its all velcrow (not sure on the spelling). It makes it easy to line stuff up, but when it gets down to it the velcrow is just annoying. It's a mild pay raise, but theres no way anyone would turn it down. I could never forget about the men/women under me for the sole purpose that I was there once and I know how it felt to be bullied in a sense by those above me.
