‘Girly’ Marine Hats
Many Marines aren’t happy.
The New York Post reports, “Thanks to a plan by President Obama to create a ‘unisex’ look for the Corps, officials are on the verge of swapping out the Marines’ iconic caps – known as ‘covers’ – with a new version that some have derided as so ‘girly’ that they would make the French blush.” Marine Corps head Gen. James Amos is expected to make the final decision on the possible change soon. Consider it part of the Obama administration’s effort to remake the military in his leftist image.
Update: It turns out that the New York Post got it wrong: This didn’t have anything to do with Barack Obama, but rather, as Stars and Stripes reports, “The manufacturer of the women’s ‘bucket cover’ – which has a distinctly different shape than the men’s cover – is going out of business and will not continue to make the cap.”
