...as someone who has not had much on top since my late 20s (I figured I'd go bald one day so I have been buzzing or bicing it for years)
I am in the process of applying for the reserves. And I have a beard. A nice one. Really wicked one.
GF loves it. When we first met, I had about a month or so of growth on my face, and for our second date I shaved it down to about a few days worth, and she was like Ewww, grow it back. Needless to say, we are both liking it.
One of the reasons I am going Res vs Reg is that I resent how much the army owns you.
And one of the biggest kickers of joining at all, is that even though I'm only committing to a few hours a week, they still get to own my face the rest of the time because I'll need to loose my mane.
But I'll be damned if I'll lose it all!
So that brings me to the moustache. Specifically the handlebar moustache.
I have read the regs on facial hair and all that, and yet there seems to be an unofficial standard when it comes to handlebar moustaches in the Forces.
So I'm wondering what everyone has seen, and/or are wearing themselves.
What or how much can you get away with?
