I work a few blocks from our military headquarters here in Ottawa. As a cost-savings measure some years back, members of the Canadian Forces were issued two uniforms (formal and battle) instead of 3 (formal, office, battle). As a result, every day I see all these military staff who work at desk jobs in camouflage gearm, like they were ready to hit Normandy Beach.

General schmeneral. It’s a frickin’ JOB, and if you’re not in that job anymore, you’re no different to me than anybody else waiting in line in front of me for their fries! Put on a shirt and a pair of pants and be done with it.
