Marine Corps Seeks Feedback on New Cover

The Marine Corps Uniform Board may recommend the adoption of a universal cover for men and women to be worn with dress and service uniforms.

The Marine Corps Uniform Board is contemplating the adoption of a universal cover for men and women to be worn with dress and service uniforms.

The change could take one of two forms. Either women could begin wearing current male covers with slight modifications, or all Marines could begin wearing new “Dan Daly caps,” according to a Marine news release. Daly caps feature a smaller crown, similar to the cover worn by two-time Medal of Honor recipient Sgt. Maj. Dan Daly, known best for his World War I exploits at Belleau Wood.

To gather feedback from both active duty and Reserve Marines, the Uniform Board distributed a survey across the Corps via sergeant majors that will run through Friday. The board will convene Oct. 29 and take the survey results into consideration, although they are not binding.

    This is an absolute disgrace and offensive to USMC veterans who have served in foreign wars. Tell whomever is responsible for this to get off this cutsie head cover. Semper Fi.

      I agree 100% Stop the madness coming from the O administration. This is not a USMC request for change but Valerie Jarrett! USMC 69-70 MP

        You have to be joking. Is there no end to the “liberal” BS.
