    Saw that today and laughed so hard, I nearly puked!! They can't afford ammunition to train troops but they can spend money on unisex uniform changes for the Marines? This is totally out of control!!!

    BTW, I wish them luck implementing this one!

    As a Marine, I would tell Obama to go eff himself. He would probably be just happy as a clam if the Marine Corps switched over to turbans.....

    Obama must be getting ahead of the trouble that transvestite Marines will cause wanting to wear female uniforms. Doesn't Obama have a website to fix or something instead of destroying military morale?

    It's bogus. The Marines ARE looking for a new source for female covers---the previous manufacturer
    went out of business.

    Heck of it is it sounds plausible. But the fact is that Obummer isn't in charge of Military uniform
    changes. We should be thankful for that----

    Did you see the makeup they put on the guy wearing the new-style hat?
    Obama won't be done until everyone hates his guts

    well i would hope that this would be a somewhat gradual change because in the end it could save money by standardizing the uniform a bit more. i would also hope that they keep in mind that there is an image that needs to be kept for our military. they do in fact need to appear strong in uniform, its kinda something all armies have shot for through out history.

    Medal of Honor recipient Sergeant Major Daniel Daly does not agree that the hats are either girly or new.

    even if he were 20 years older he would still look like he would rip you open.

    "In 1900, during the Boxer Rebellion in China, he received his first Medal of Honor for single-handedly defending his position against repeated attacks and inflicted casualties of around 200 on the attacking Boxers." I'd say he probably could have. Maybe the hats were retired for being too bad-a$$.

    Those old school hats wouldn't work today simply for the fact that our guys would get soaked when they are tasked with holding an umbrella over that steaming pile of dog excrement when he gives speeches in the Rose garden during a rain storm.

    This reminds me of the mid-90s when the Air Force changed their dress blue rank insignia to be like airline pilots.
