As for hats, I prefer my nineteen47.com Yankees hat.

Jesus you guys have zero tolerance for fools, do you?

To answer the question about any hat will do but may I suggest: in the woods a dark boonie hat, dark because of counter shading, the top of your head will be illuminated by the sun and in desert wear a tan hat with a brim.

How do I know? I used to play paintball. :rolleyes:

How can a 'bama boy wear that?!? ;) Figured you guys would be sporting Tide or at least Tigers hats.

Yup...and the town has been named "Enduring Presence" for those of us who will be left behind after the rapture...
It's never good when they already have a name for it:rolleyes:

Just cause the unit is from 'bama doesnt make me a fan of either Auburn or UoA... ;)

A couple Tide, Tiger, and LSU fans then there is myself and a guy from Mass (who sports the Redsox hat. Not your normal 1st BN ODA to say the least.

It is becoming a ghost town indeed here and not too soon.

I will save my thoughts on the "Enduring Presence" for another discussion... But like my Brother said, its a fitting end.

On the contrary, the posters on this thread have been extremely tolerant, IMHO.

I could've used one of those 'field @$$hats' - it would've given me a convenient excuse and saved me a couple @$$chewings of note. ;)

Richard- You and me both but I think an @$$ helmet would have been better. Some of those old school SGM's were part alligator...

Mark, you got that one right - when Dick Warren was done with you, if you weren't in the hospital you were limping for the next six months!
