Girly Hats

It seems that our President doesn't have enough to do, what with the botched Obamacare rollout, and the IRS hearings, and the Benghazi debacle.  No, he's got plenty of time to screw with the uniform regulations of services that he never bothered to serve.
According to the New York Post, President Obama's plan to create a "unisex" look for the Corps has officials on the verge of swapping out the Marines' iconic caps with a new hat that some have derided as so "girly" that they would make the French blush. 
He's got all the time in the world to screw with the uniform regulations, now that Kerry has gotten us thrown out of Saudi Arabia and his entire Middle East policy is in disarray.  Sure, why not screw with the Marines?  Besides, those hats probably aren't that bad, are they?

Old hats on the left, new hats on the right.  I understand that they're going to be called the Dan Daly hat, after a Marine who won the Medal in WWI.  Of course, after looking at Daly's picture under the link, he might have approved.  But I don't think that the President, nor any cabinet member, nor yet any civilian should be telling the Armed Services what they should wear.  Don't they have anything better to do?  Like fix healthcare?  Or meet his tee-time?

I don't believe I would have told Mr. Daly his hat was a girly hat. Not without a lot of pain.

I read on another site that the company that makes the cover (Hats) for the female marines is going out of business and as a result the marines have no supply of "cover for these women marines. They have to find new hats and are using the normal procedure to find a suppl and will be design a new cover for these woman since they cant get the old ones. This will be for the woman only . Check it out.
