Well, not everyone is enthralled with the Ice Bucket Challenge.
The Department of Defense Office of General Counsel has issued an order that current service members and DoD employees cannot participate in the “ALS Ice Bucket Challenge” while in uniform.
This includes civilian uniforms that clearly show a DoD relationship — i.e. Department of the Army civilian police uniforms.
The OGC says that participating while in uniform can be construed as an official DoD endorsement for the cause.
The legal advisory was posted to the Facebook page of the National Training Center/Fort Irwin.
The Arizona Central did a ranking of the football uniform changes to the Pac-12.
Via some guy named Phil, here are three possible uniforms for the Kansas opening game.
