That story about Obama wanting Marines to wear "girly" hats is nonsense

The Post writer, Jeane MacIntosh, writes of a “plan by President Obama to create a ‘unisex’ look for the Corps, officials are on the verge of swapping out the Marines’ iconic caps – known as ‘covers’ — with a new version that some have derided as so ‘girly’ that they would make the French blush.”

As a Marine veteran who knows how these changes actually happen, I can tell you the story is 100% B.S. The bottom line: The President doesn’t involve himself in what troops happen to be wearing.

But just to make sure, I called Headquarters Marine Corps and a spokesperson confirmed that the process for making changes to Marine uniforms hasn’t changed since I last left the service in 2010.
