    A change to the Marine Corps’ uniform hats could take the hard-nosed Leathernecks from the Halls of Montezuma to the shops of Christopher Street.



    the new hats are on the right, although they may look a little French, I don't think they look 'girly' at all, I like the new hats, the old ones are huge in comparison, the old one looks like a bakers hat on a women, way too big for her face

    I don't know about you, but I blame Obama for pretty much everything at this point. My cat died, at first I thought it was cancer, but instead it was Obama. Flat tire on my bike this morning? Obama. My long term lover has decided to try to grow facial hair and I blame that Kenyan Muslim Obama, of course.
    Try it yourself, it's fun and easy. Plus, it removes all responsibility for the choices you may make yourself.

    "A Marine official says that recently the Marine Corps Uniform Board, comprised of non-commissioned officers and officers [note the President is not a member of this Board], discussed a change in the headgear known as a “cover” as a means of streamlining uniform rules for men and women."

    "The proposed smaller unisex hat is known as the “Dan Daly” hat and would be a throwback to the type of hat used prior to 1922."

    "Marines have until Friday to cast their votes on whether to adopt them or keep the old hat with modifications. Marine Corps head Gen. James Amos will make the final decision."

    In other words, all Marines are getting a say and CMC (not the President) will have the final say.

    I'd happily bet a large sum of money they will opt to stick with the current pattern.

    The article mentions several times that the new hats look too French. What about the berets our troops wear? Can we finally lose those un-American monstrosities, too? icon_razz.gif

    What amazes me is the man's energy: to destroy so many things that we all hold sacred must take enormous drive! Does he ever sleep? I mean, he's even taking time to design hats!

    Well, Biden does a lot of the heavy lifting when it comes to ruining the world.

    From the official USMC website:

    Recent headlines in the media have created confusion regarding a Marine Corps uniform item, the male dress cover. Some in the media have implied that the President of the United States directed a change in this dress cover.

    Commandant of the Marine Corps Gen. James F. Amos said, “the President in no way, shape or form directed the Marine Corps to change our uniform cover.”

    While the Marine Corps Uniform Board is currently looking for a new cover, or cap, for female Marines because the current manufacturer is going out of business, there is no intent to change the current male Marine dress cover.
    A survey released by the Marine Corps Uniform Board eliciting input from Marines in regard to uniform items, sought opinions about the “Dan Daly-style” cover.

    Pictures of male Marines wearing this cover were included in the survey material. This is standard practice while conducting surveys. For instance, when the Marine Corps transitioned to the current MARPAT camouflage design several years ago, surveys included a number of proposed cami-patterns and additional uniform options.

    “The surveys often contain photo illustrations that portray what a uniform article might look like when worn by a Marine,” Col. Todd S. Desgrosseilliers, Marine Corps Uniform Board president, said. “This is a very standard practice. While there was never any desire or intent to change the male Marine dress cover, the feedback we have received to maintain this iconic cover has been heard, loud and clear. "

    Surveys conducted by the Uniform Board serve to inform the commandant, who has the final say on all changes to the Marine Corps uniform.

    Kathleen Sibelius is to be blamed for the hats.

    The green running shorts that Marines wear in their morning P.T. runs, skimpy and sexy. Too bad most male Marines are homophobic.
