    That is beyond cool. :up:

    Ah, April 1. I'm totally for the Stetson in any event. The original flat-biller.

    I love it. I predicted this when the Army wussed out and let everyone start wearing the beret instead of earning it. Now everyone gets to wear the Air Cav hat without earning it.

    Let's just kick the shit out of more tradition. :rolleyes:

    Maybe it's an April Fools joke.

    The Army's official adoption date of the Stetson will be April Fool's Day, 2012.

    "The Army's official adoption date of the Stetson will be April Fool's Day, 2012"

    With this posted as the last sentence and the date of the article is 4/1/2011, I'd say "APRIL FOOLS".

    BTW, not a fan of the beret in any case.

    I saw that link and thought "the beret was bad enough, now this bullshit" Then I caught the adoption date.

    I was in when we switched to berets, what a clusterfuck. We had a lot of people looking like pizza makers and Frenchies.

    Me too. It was / is hot and did nothing to keep the sun out of your eyes. Nothing like a wool hat on your head in the summer.

    Cav Scouts shit a brick when they saw this I bet, until the end.

    I still want a Cav hat but I won't wear one because quite simply I'm not in nor have I ever been in the Cavalry (grandpa was but I don't have one of his).

    Where did I say I was going to ride a horse? Although a Morgan or Clydesdale or the like would be pretty damn cool :D

    The best April Fool's jokes are the ones that are plausible. I could see the current crop of leadership canceling weapons while focusing on fashion.

    I got out before the switch happened, and was glad of it.

    I was like you, and could totally see them doing it. Very believable April Fools bit.
