Wrong date format for my locale

My locale is correctly set to en_US.utf8. The correct format for dates in this locale is "Fri Mar 16 2012." However, Linux, in every distro I've tried, will only display the date as "Fri 16 Mar 2012."

It appears that the en_US.utf8 defines this incorrectly. Is there a way to correct this problem system-wide on my computer? Can this definition be found in a file somewhere, that I can edit?

Is there a place where I can go to report this problem to whomever maintains the UTF standards?

Thanks for any help.
