obama wants Marines to wear new "girly" hat

This POS president's hatred for the military is unbelievable. Now he wants to make them look like wimps. Will be interesting to see how the Marine Corp commandant handles this one.

This country is going broke and he wants to waste money on something that doesn't need fixing. Typical liberal.

He'll do exactly as he's told to do. He just follows orders.

I'm about 99.9% sure Obama had nothing to do with any of it.

I think you're right. On the news this morning only the Marine Corps itself was mentioned about the decision. I'm real disappointed to see the hats they'll have to wear. Another "bow" to political correctness.

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.
Quote:
"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."
But of course, don't believe any facts right under your nose.

They're soliciting opinion on FB and whatnot among former Marines as to which cover should be the default one.

It's not like "we're going to adopt this one" but more of a "we're going to have one cover, which should it be" kind of deal according to friends of mine who are lifers and still in.

But I'm sure some journalist hit piece is actually more accurate than my buddy who's a Major or another who's a GySgt.

OMG, the new proposed cover is the most effeminate thing I have ever seen in uniform design, historical or modern. It would be a disaster to implement this in the USMC.

Which is why Obama will want to do it, for sure.

Since this topic is going in two forums I thought I'd go ahead and copy my post from the other one.

Meh...looks pretty traditional to me. Actually the ones they currently wear remind me of a doorman at a hotel or a bus driver.

I think that's more an element of going from a wartime military to a garrison military.

"The President in no way, shape, or form directed the Marine Corps to change our uniform cover," said Capt. Maureen Krebs, a spokesperson for the Marine Corps. "We're looking for a new cover for our female Marines for the primary reason that the former manufacturer went out of business. The Marine Corps has zero intention of changing the male cover."
Darn those pesky facts.
