If you dont soak and shave it, you'll look like an escaped pastry chef. No ifs, ands or buts, you WILL look like Chef Frenchie at your local bakery. Kharn

Why do the berets have to be black? I know they want to motivate the troops, but it devalues the black berets that guys have worked hard for. Brown berets could look pretty sharp.

``When worn properly, the beret is form fitting to the head,'' says written do's and don'ts. ``Therefore, soldiers may not wear hairstyles that cause distortion of the beret.'' What about those guys whose heads will cause distortion?

burn, Ranger brown ? A battle earlier this century ? Not allowed to wear until now ? No offense, but someone is feeding you a whole dumptruck of BS there. It sounds like something SMA Aunt Tlley made up. Honor, Respect and Discipline. Earned, Not Issued. 11B2P Strike Hold

If he wanted to change something he should have changed our Class A uniforms back to brown and khaki. BTW, what does "Army of One" mean?? sounds like its saying that teamwork is no longer needed. Shinseki is out of touch and needs to go. Essayons!

No they didn't. During the recon. plane thing they were going to destroy the unissued berets that had been delivered from China, and get some domestic berets. They decided it didn't make any sense to destroy them since they were already paid for. IIRC If we have a war will there be a "beret gap"?? What if shipping lanes with China are cut? Will we be unable to deploy the Army due to lack of headgear?? Perhaps there is a plan to fight an indoor only war so berets won't be a neccesity.[;)] [;)] [;)]

I was wrong...the Army turned back or destroyed a few hundred thousand Chines berets or berets with Chi-Com content..History of the beret movement in US Army [url]http://globalspecops.com/rangerberet.html[/url]

I just remember them being extremely hot here in Florida in the summer. You could overlook the problems with wearing the beret because of the history and pride, but now that the beret is shared by every soldier I believe it will be known as a pain in the ass. 11B4S A/3/11th
