Do all Marines get Alpha uniforms after bootcamp?

I m leaving to Bootcamp in January and i ve watched many graduation videos etc. And to be honest i ve very excited ( right now) but i always see every graduation is different uniform. Do all Marines get Alpha uniforms ( green wooly uniform)? I just think they look very nice and it reminds me of World War II days. Thanks for answering in advance :)

    Yes, that is one of the uniforms you are issued during boot camp.

    And whether you graduate in Alphas depends on where you go to boot camp and what time of the year you are graduating.

    More info for future Marines:

    Yes...they are issued in boot (and you pay for them btw, it comes out of your boot pay), just a taste of the sometimes odd Marine Corps uniform nomenclature, the "green wooly" jacket is referred to as a blouse....and your pants are called trousers.
