The dredded use of the word "uniform" as an adjective, and not just a noun! My little brother retired after 22 yrs active duty, about 4 or 5 years ago, and he still refers to his "old man" or "granny" glasses - those very plain black frame glasses that the Army let him purchase through their eye care plan.

As for me, I'm WAY careless and forgetful to use expensive sun glasses on the water, even with Croakies!!! So I wear contacts, and I pick-up and stockpile cheap poloraized glasses whenever I find a good price or find them on-sale. I picked up a half-dozen pair at an Orvis tent-sale a couple of years ago. Still have 4 pair new, in the box. Reg $45+/-, on clearance for $18.99...... I either use a magnifier clip-on on them for tying knots, or I switch to 2.0+ reading glasses. ($20 for 5 pr at Sam's Club!)

BTW, AK, thank you for your service!!!
