I like the hat - a lot

The green one up front. I want one. Seriously. How much, and where do I send my order.

The caption reads:
U.S. Navy special warfare combatant craft crewmen assigned to Special Boat Team (SBT) 22 align the sights of their M-4 rifles during small-arms training at Stennis Space Center in Mississippi Feb. 19, 2008. SBT-22 crewmen use a special operations craft-riverine armed with an M-240 belt-fed machine gun, a GAU-17 mini-gun and an M-2 .50-caliber machine gun. Each special boat operator must be proficient with each weapon and with personal firearms.

The real Navy.

Note the BDU, not NWU. These guys actually need a real camo uniform, therefore they wear one (though they really need Multi-Cam). As for the hat; why couldn't TFU come up with something like that? Instead we have a USMC wannabe uniform. Sigh.

In any event, it isn't radical. Admiral Halsey would like it,
I bet.
