here's a link to the pertinent Marine Corps reg, please show me where it says a Male Marine is not allowed to hold an umbrella<quoted text>Obama breaches Marine umbrella protocol
The commander in chief of the American armed forces forced a violation of Marine Corps regulations, so he wouldnt get wet. poor baby!!!
According to Marine Corps regulation MCO P1020.34F of the Marine Corps Uniform Regulations chapter 3, a male Marine is not allowed to carry or hold an umbrella while in uniform.
There is no provision in the Marine Corps uniform regulation guidelines that allows a male Marine to carry an umbrella.
