Two Weeks to GoWe've been approved by CO AMTS to grow beards from 19 Oct to 17 Dec. This is a rare opportunity to put down the razor for 60 whole days!
There are some ground rules though. Firstly, you still have to abide by Dress Manual requirements and they will be enforced. Secondly, no donation = no beard. The going rate is $100 for 30 days, and an extra $50 ($150 all up) for the whole 60 days. Family and friends are welcome to donate too, but you've got to stump up for yourself.
Ultimately, we're not doing this for ourselves, we're doing this to support Soldier On, and the serving and ex-serving members and their families that they support through their HELP program.
