JM: If you had a set uniform, what did it look like? Please be specific about each piece of clothing issued to you.
Lily: no
Dawn: I was given a blue uniform. the top was a t shirt and pants. The material was thick so it kept me warm. they allowed us to wear long johns as well. you had to order those from the commissary.
