Military Enlisted members are provided monetary allowances to pay for uniform replacement and maintenance. These allowances are based on the cost of specific uniform items, and on an estimated "wear out" date for each specific item. Below are the uniform replacement/maintenance allowances for each of the military service. For more information about military enlisted clothing (uniform) allowances, see Department of Defense (DOD) Pay Regulation, Volume 7A (Active Duty & Reserve Pay), Chapter 29-- Clothing Monetary Allowances.
