Beret

The US Army finally rids soldiers of the Black Wool Beret. No matter how many mistakes Josh McDaniels made (and boy was there a lot) they'll never compare to the mistake that General Shenseki made when he changed the cover warn by US Army soldiers. First of all the beret has its roots in France and Spain, I could probably stop right there to justify a reluctance to use the beret. But the beret has also been a symbol of distinction in the Army ranks for years. Tan (use to be black I think) for the Rangers, Maroon for Airborne troops and Green for special forces. Unlike the completely illogical black wool beret, the good ol'American ball cap is made of breathable light weight rip-stop cotton that has a bill to provide protection to exposed skin and eyes, making it a far better choice for those working out of doors. Like a lot of Josh McDaniels mistakes, this was a no brainer folks. Happy Birthday to the US Army, congratulations to the troops and thanks to all of you for your continued sacrifices and service. http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/43395533
