Thanks to a plan by President Obama to create a “unisex” look for the Corps, officials are on the verge of swapping out the Marines’ iconic caps – known as “covers” — with a new version that some have derided as so “girly” that they would make the French blush.

“We don’t even have enough funding to buy bullets, and the DoD is pushing to spend $8 million on covers that look like women’s hats!” one senior Marine source fumed to The Post. “The Marines deserve better. It makes them look ridiculous.”

The thin new covers have a feminine line that some officials think would make them look just as good on female marines as on males — in keeping with the Obama directive.

“The Marine Corps is being ‘encouraged’ by DoD to standardize on a unisex/universal dress and service cap,” Marine brass noted in an internal memo obtained by The Post.
The change would cost millions of dollars.Obama is spending like there is no tomorrow.

Makes sense now? Why would Obama bother spending millions of dollars on uniforms? Here is a tip, it is not about gender or uniforms. It is about spending the US Dollars into a worthless heap of piles. People don't realize this fool got an excellent plan ongoing.

This crap should help to explain that.

But, it won't.

He is the commander in chief.

PychoZ, you are correct. I am sick of the JOS and the COMC bending over and taking it. AS stupid as this is, WHO thought up this incredibly idiotic notion?

I loved wearing my Barracks Cover. MOF, it is hanging over my daughters closet. The Marines are ALL ABOUT TRADITION. Look how little our uniform has changed since WWII. THAT is the most bang for the tax payers buck anyone can ask for.

Although he is the CIC of the Armed Forces, just because he can doesn't mean he should. IF THIS ACTUALLY came from the POTUS (and although I despise the man)I find it hard to believe that he ordered this.

Still, stranger things have happened and right now he is worse then a lame duck. LEAVE MY MARINE CORPS ALONE! LEAVE THE ARMED FORCES ALONE.

He has MUCH larger problems to deal with then trying to force his stupid legacy on a group of professionals that get paid crap and are willing to lay down their life's for the American Way.

a buddy of mine told me yesterday it got shot down.
My guess: somebody with connections owns a uniform company and is looking for some government pork. As always with anything governmental, follow the money. Just look at the programming for the Obamacare website.
And yes Z, both sides do it......fully acknowledged.
