They are supposed to be coming out July 10th however I haven’t seen any guidance on beret wear or jump boots. If anyone’s got any info that would be much appreciated

I want a pair so bad I can taste it. I was given a pair by a friend who's father wore them during WW2. They fit perfectly but, I couldn't bear taking a relic out of her family like her daddy's jump boots. Instead I polished them and gave them back to her, I suggested that she give them to her brother or ask if someone else would want them. INDEED he Bother wanted them. Their daddy died a short time later, now they mean a whole lot more.

They aren't officially mandatory until like 2028. I haven't heard a thing from my leadership in my unit - and I'm hoping I can retire in 4 years without buying another new uniform.

That was a good looking uniform right there, I wish they had never gotten rid of it

Capt Gregory Prickett - In the 82nd we got our maroon beret in 1974, before that, we wore a garrison cap with a Glider Airborne patch. Picture was taken in 1972, I was with the 2/508th inf at Bragg.

SGT Carl Blas - We had the maroon beret in 1979, but GEN Rogers got a hair up his a$$ and took it away when he was Chief of Staff.

The headgear to be worn is up to the chain of command, but the maroon beret is authorized. I imagine that the choice will normally be the overseas cap with glider patch. And there are supposed to be brown Cochrans coming out, like this general is wearing during the test.

It was nice to have worn the maroon beret, and the glider patch on a garrison cap.
