    The Dan Daily covers are throwbacks to the late 1800's. Nothing new in Marine military fashion.

    FWIW, those hats that are supposed to look girly are almost exactly like the dress uniform hats that my dad wore when he was a firefighter. If anyone had told him or any of his friends that they looked like girls in their uniforms, it wouldn't have ended well for them. But I guess those firefighters were as RK likes to put it, "just a bunch of union thugs."
    That is absolutely false, not once EVER anywhere Have I ever suggested such a thing.
    But maybe I just wasted my time, after all, you are all about posting facts!!!!

    I think Obama would look good in one of those hats while riding his bike wearing mom jeans... Or maybe while throwing an occasional first pitch

    I was surprised as I thought the new cover might be along the design lines of "the hoodie". Regardless of the cover worn, the USMC are the best damn warriors on planet Earth.

    According to Franco's citation, the input of the Marines will help determine changes ... but that article also states that the Corps has no intention of changing the males' covers. Thanks for setting the story straight, Franco.

    Yes, the Daly caps do look like the covers used by many fire departments, from what I've seen. Perhaps that was originally a conscious decision NOT to resemble military caps? Often police caps seem more similar in shape to the military ones, but not exactly, so maybe there was a conscious decision at some point to make military and civilian uniforms distinguishable from each other?

    I seem appropriate for women to have at least slightly smaller caps that would be proportional to their usually smaller frame and heads. No reason why the guys should have to change theirs. Franco's citation seemed to say that.
