I was a US ARMY Grunt, '79-'90. Obtaining the Rank of Captain. I lead a Rifle Plt in the 101 Air Assault Div. and later Commanded a Mech[M113] Company of a Mech Bde of the 18th ARN Corps. I'm only telling you my experiences. I served in 4 Inf Bns, 1 Air Assault and 3 Mech … in Panama, Korea, [West]Germany and all over the States. Plus I've studied history most of my life. So I'm only stating this based on my experiences, studies, etc.

I know at the US ARMY Ranger School we generally wore a soft/patrol cap. Many patrols in Vietnam were run without helmets, as we were told and can be seen in many photos.


So that again is what I base my comments on …

Legion, I was not questioning your facts!

It's just a cultural thing, I immediately thought 'American' when you mentioned the headgear. (Sene your lads in the field, and yes, it can be a 'parade' of headgear!)

I was a Sergeant in the Royal Artillery (96-02) , and after your weapon, the strictest rules we have (had) were on headgear.

But everyone different!

They are made to wear hats for more variety, that's all.

Yup, heavy tank is up in the store:

I see where the cloth hats probably don't make much sense from a military perspective, but then again this line is going to have a giant centipede battle fortress, so I think we are playing it fast and loose here :)
