The Enlisted Sun-kiss


They say that Marines don’t see skin-color, and that all Marines are green. While this is debatable with regard to race and ethnicity, it’s hard not to notice becoming drastically two-toned during your enlistment.

Marines spend a lot of time outside. As well, uniform regulations state that the vast majority of the time spent outside will be done with at least a T-shirt on. Field-ops, working parties, training, formations, and more will see Marines standing out in the sun for often hours on-end.

It is near-impossible to avoid the inevitable “Farmer’s Tan” that is a trademark of all Marines and the lament of Marine spouses and partners across the globe. Put on some sunscreen and embrace your multi-toned future, warrior.
