    The women look better in the men's cover.

    The ones on the right look French. The others just look stupid. At least he's not making them wear berets.

    The small hats look silly. I am sure there is tradition that prevents them from tossing them. After all tradition is more important than efficiency.

    While the USMC might be considering this (personally I question the credibility of the reporting), I find it incredibly difficult to believe ANY President gets involved in uniform decisions.

    I think the women look sharp in those small covers. The men should continue to wear the traditional caps however. YMMV. tom. :cool:

    Obama really should leave alone people who are better than him.

    Dress uniforms aren't made to be efficient, they are made for looks and tradition. If you want functionality then that is what cammo is for.

    "The thin new covers have a feminine line that some officials think would make them look just as good on female marines as on males — in keeping with the Obama directive."

    I was going to say they look like the dress uniform hats worn by fire chiefs.

    Efficiency in purchasing.

    Why make the men go to a small hat? There are far more men than women in the Marines. If anything the women should change.

    So... Obama is not involved with the specific uniform decisions at all. Got it.
