I think that the military just noticed how badass his red coat is and decided to let him wear it. laugh.gif

BWAHAHAHA! That would be so awsome if that were the case. ::Loves his red jacket:: Naah I'm pretty sure he's just too small of a shrimp and they didn't have any that fit him. (Went against my own advice... 'Never call Ed small if you want to LIVE')

i found a pic of ed in a fitting uniform. he looked very nice but it didnt have the energy of his red coat. i honestly think i figured out the color thing. see it's like this:

ed's red coat symbolizes his energy and the blood of his past, his black clothing underneath represents his dark past and his void of emotions. where as the blue of the military gives athority with out fear (when neatly presented) and gives a feeling of trust and responsablity, which your soppost to feel for proper athority figures. not having a jacket over ed's top shows that he is willing to break away from his hiddin self to revile his true self in order to win. in english : he'll drop everything to save it all, it also shows signs of full power or last resort. the dull colors of cloth on al shows he is dpressed, feeling empty (no pun), and neutural in emotion. this doesnt mean he doesnt have deep emotions but over all he feels no connection to reality. similar to ed, who's emotions are of being lost and failer.

ok, my psycology (again) got the better of me. i'll stop now. open to all opinions! biggrin.gif

couldnt agree more! the red coat adds to his firy side. it also helps to show his imaturity and cockyness but also shows that he can be counted on in a tight spot. the uniform means something programed is exected all the time. his differnt uniform means he can be the wild card and play the sides. also...anyone know the date of eds birthday? he seems to be either aries or scorpio. sorry, one more thing i love to study. hm, now that i think about it i love studying but hate school. wow, talk about irony.

night!

All I know is (shrimpy, attitude problem Edo with silky golden hair in a pony tail) + (same old military uniform) = HOT and/or handsome! This combination works so well in my head and they make each other look good so why BONES, why?!

Umm...I hate to spoil the obvious fun, but...well I just couldn't help but actually trying to answer the original question.

Why isn't Ed required to wear the Military uniform like everyone else?

First off, we need to narrow down that term "everyone else." If you look at those in the employ of the military that wear the uniform and then compare them to those that don't (IE Ed, Shou Tucker, Dr. Marcoh, Nash Tringham), you'll notice something that each group has in common.

Those that wear the uniform are all soldiers that have officially entered the Military. They all went through bootcamp, they are all trained in how to use various weapons and, they all have a rank, whether it be Master Sargeant, Lieutenant Colonel, Brigadier General, or Fuhrer.

Those that wear civilian clothing, however (again: Ed, Tucker, Marcoh, and Tringham), were simply Alchemists working for the Military. While they may be called into active duty if a major conflict arises, they haven't had the traditional training that the other soldiers have and are considered more scientists on the Military's payroll than soldiers.

So... Ed is more like a scientist person than an actual member of the military? That part makes sense.

My two questions are, was Tringham a part of the military (passing the state alchemy exams, I mean)? I honestly don't remember seeing that in those two eps (12 & 13 I believe?). (If we see him again after ep 26, I obviously don't know. I follow CN's airings of FMA. Leave me alone about it. ~_~)

The other question: Marcoh had to have definitely been a part of the military. My memory just decided to go all fuzzy on me, but didn't he go to Ishbal during the rebellion with Roy, etc? However, I don't remember him wearing a military uniform, either (even though in that time of war), which still leaves the question of why he's not wearing his military uniform.

Someone said Ed was probably either an Aries or a Scorpio - it's possible that he could be either, but not likely. He was born in winter (he shares his birthday with Elicia - remember the day Elicia was born? it was snowing outside and Hughes went to get a doctor...), so it would make more sense for him to be a Pisces or something. Pisces are usually weepy and emotional, however, so that might not be his sign. Depending on when winter comes in Amestris (Germany), he could be any of these signs:
Scorpio, Sagittarius, Capricorn, Aquarius, Pisces, Aries, Taurus.

Scorpio, Aries and Taurus are a long shot, however. Snow doesn't usually fall during that time.

...And I just realized his birthday probably has nothing to do with why he doesn't wear the military uniform. Sorry! X_x

He probably doesn't because he just doesn't want to. When Roy sends him out on all those missions, it's also easier to do reconnaisance work (okay, investigating is his job but we all know he also fixes everyones problems. XD) when you're not wearing a glaring bullseye target on you. He has the pocket watch, though, to prove his affiliation, when needed. ^^

Do you mean the elder Tringham? If so, yes, I thought he was also a State Alchemist, but I could b mistaken. It's been such a long time since I last saw that episode.

Marcoh, same as Edward, is also a State Alchemist, therefore also a part of the military. When he was drafted (State Alchemists always get drafted when a War breaks out, which was part of the reason Pinako objected to Ed's decision to partake in the State Alchemist exams) he also wore his military uniform.

So basically, if a War broke out and Ed wouldn't have left the military we all would have seen him in his form-fitting, pine-sized uniform, but [unfortunately] it never came to that.
