Well I thought I'd post a few thoughts on the beret. You are welcomed to disagree.
I think the thing is usless. This could be that in my state they use the PC. However, here we enjoy this bliss of the beret.
1) I think it's a fashion acessory, basically that it's non functional
2) The logic of a "more professional" head gear, makes little sense to me.
o We have uniforms with hook and latch and boots that can't be shined
3) That joker is super hot in the sun
