Re: Starfleet Marine Corps
The US Supreme Court threw the law out in 1970. Notice I said the first year of Falling Skies, when the Colonel returned in the second season he wore the uniform correctly. Probably because people like me made such noise about Captain Dye being in such a production when his initial career after retiring from the Marine Corps was to make sure his clients didn't make those silly errors.
