Now all Marines can use umbrellas
For the first time in more than 200 years, all Marines now have the right to sunshade. Before the recent update of the uniform rules, women in the Marine Corps were allowed to use umbrellas, but men were not allowed to use umbrellas. The rule is now changed.
The use of umbrellas is prohibited in part because they are not conducive to salutation. According to women's regulations, an umbrella that is completely black must be carried with the left hand, "so that the salute can be correctly saluted." The regulation states. That part hasn't changed. The umbrella must still be completely black and carried with the left hand to salute.
携带雨伞的海军陆战队很少见。2013年，当时的总统巴拉克·奥巴马（Barack Obama）和土耳其首相雷塞普·塔伊普·埃尔多安（Recep Tayyip Erdogan）上方有两把雨伞，当时乌云笼罩了两位领导人。
The Marines with umbrellas are rare. In 2013, there were two umbrellas above the then President Barack Obama and Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan, when clouds covered the two leaders.
At the time of the incident, Marine Corps spokesman captain Greg Wolff told CNN that the incident was "extremely rare" and only happened because of the needs of the president. Umbrella rules are not the only ones that are changing. The Marines will now also allow women to wear silver studs.
