Of course.

That is an SF guy he is talking to.

Is that Jeb in the background?

I can't quite make out the flash, but it's from Florida after the hurricane, so 20th seemed likely. That's Jeb back there.

Showing that keen understanding of the military which makes me proud of our media, the AP caption was "President Bush greets Federal Emergency Management Agency worker Kay Johnston and Neil Hardin, right, of Special Forces Group, Florida National Guard, Sunday, Aug. 15, 2004."

Why is he wearing a black beret and not a green one?

I believe that it is green.

The SF Green Beret is a very dark green known as Rifle Green, and at times, is mistaken for black.

Bill,
I can make fun of 'em because I are one! :) My drawl has improved so that most Americans can understand me, but is bad enough that my PA born and raised wife says "y'all" every now and then.

FL has enough yankees in the state that 3/20 isn't as bad as 2/20 in MS...... :munchin

TR opined, "I believe that it is green. The SF Green Beret is a very dark green known as Rifle Green, and at times, is mistaken for black."

It is no mistake that the black beret is often mistaken for green. It was part of the plan. Aside, WTF is a hat? I'd often thought that we'd been better off with baseball caps. What kind of person do you attract to a unit who focuses on accouterments? I met a few. I read Robin Moore's book in SFTG. I saw the movie as a patient after the RVN in Fitzsimons Army Hospital in Denver. I look at the one thing I missed in the Army; I'm not Ranger qualified.

I'm with Viking on the missing link thing. Missing? We're not missing...we know right were we are.

I got assigned to that Mississippi unit to go to Haiti. Those country folks hate the UN!

Crazyasses flew the US flag, the Mississippi state flag and UN flag at the bottom on a pole. :eek:

That gave LTC Short a fit, trying to explain that too the upper-echelons. :D

My greatgrandfather died in Okalona, MS in 1903. There is a town where cotton was king, ain't nothing regal about it now. Funny thing, he was an Irish-Catholic. What was he doing there?
