Marine Hat Named After Two-Time Medal of Honor Recipient Sgt Dan Daly – “Come On You Sons of Bitches”

The military doesn’t have the funding for night vision goggles or the midnight dinners once served to warriors returning to camp after long days and nights on patrol or in combat, yet Obama and/or the DoD believes it important to blend male and female dress. The cost is reportedly $8 million. The hat has been named after two-time WWI Medal of Honor recipient Sgt. Dan Daly who yelled, “Come on you sons of bitches, do you want to live forever?” at the battle at Belleau. In the Stars and Stripes article below, you’ll read that WWI hats are close in design to the new unisex hat. The current hat has been the standard since 1922. A Wikipedia photo shows Sergeant Major Daly in a similar hat. He left the military in 1929, lived until 1937 and would have worn the current version of the “cover.”

Slate attributes the change to Marine General Jim Amos who has already changed the female Marine uniform to look more male, and now considering the hat to blend the male into female.

Is this Obama’s directive as has been reported above, or all the genius of a Marine General?

Amos had attempted to soften the blow by naming the new style after Sgt. Maj. Dan Daly, a Marine who earned a Medal of Honor for his service in World War I and was a man. But the Corps quickly saw through that ruse. “Those are cute,” Sgt. Arlene Tibbs said when she spied the new Daly cap last year. “I like this one because it looks girly.’’ Source: Slate – [the article goes on to debase the current Marine uniform with hints of ridiculing the men and their “sensitivity.”]

Stars and Stripes says there is no truth to the rumor that Obama is behind the mandate to girly-up the guys. The article says the DoD is the instigator and the supplier “went out of business.” Rumors are, the manufacturer couldn’t afford the new ObamaCare premiums.

Daly is one of 19 two-time Medal of Honor recipients, 7 of them Marines.

  • Why wouldn’t Obama want the Marines to look like Girly Men? After all he is a Girly Man himself.
