    This is what happens from someone that has NO military experience, no regard for the military; he needs to step away...smartly

    They look like the covers worn at the turn of the century.

    People will find anything to complain about. A dress cover does not make a Marine... so what.

    Correct....the directive is to standardize the uniforms which will be cost effective in the long run. The final selection will come from military leadership. Obama has little to do with it and is certainly not suggested the "Marines wear girl hats".

    I've never seen a female Marine even close to "girly".

    I like the smaller ones. Easier to store and less of a target for Sea Gulls and Pigeons.

    But it will be harder to make a 50 mission crush. Oh well.

    Tell that to army special forces. When JFK noticed that they were no longer wearing green berets due to an army order, he issued a directive that green berets would be worn.

    I take offense at the line the Marine Corps head General.:steamed:

    He is the Commandant. That is one step below God...:tongueout:

    Marines are grounded by traditions. To replace the headgear that has been in place for so long is blasphemy. The fact that we wore similar covers for 14 years a century ago is no excuse.

    With the operation tempo these days, dress blues are primarily worn once a year for the Marine Corps Birthday Ball. To require marines to spend money on this instead of better equipment or weapons is ridiculous.

    Blame the USMC. It is the board they convened. They weren't given guidance by the White House.

    Was it blasphemy when they changed from the headgear in the picture provided? Look familiar to what is being proposed to today? Tradition, correct?

    The first thing I thought when I saw the new pic was 'French Foreign Legion'.

    There are reasons to dislike Obama. Stop creating them from nothing.
