Fury quote

Dress uniform

If someone is attending another officer's PhD graduation ceremony, and is there because he's her team leader, or because they know each other through serving together now, rather than say still being friends but not serving together, would he be expected/likely to attend in uniform? How would he refer to the uniform he's wearing (he's air force) - dress uniform?

Also, would the person graduating be expected/likely to wear her uniform, and would she use the same phrase to refer to it (she's a marine)?

Could their commander mandate that they go in uniform, particularly if she got financial support from the military to study?

Many thanks!
