Red - Black
Need help from active Marines... (Simple question).
I am a former Marine. I don't often wear my EGA or any other identifying markings because I think it is a little pretentious.
I am also a bald Marine - so I have to wear some sort of head gear to protect my dome against the sun.
I LOVE my boonie hat - but it is not USMC issue (it is Mil Spec) and it is Tan.
I would not mind wearing my EGA on the front of it - but I don't want to jack it up.
If you are / were an active duty Marine in the last few years and wore a boonie - is the EGA stitched on / Ironed on, or is it a pin?
Do you wear rank on your boonie cover (I am fairly sure you do not)?
Give me the low down so that I don't disrespect the uniform by looking like a soup sandwich.

I hope you get the answer you're looking for but, I know for the cover it is a silk screen (or something similar), I think it's the same for the boonie hat.

Hmm, I don't know how it is with Marine uniform regs, but with Navy regs, I usually google the Navadmin and can find it relatively quickly.
If no one chimes in soon, PM me and I will contact a friend or two (active) and get you an answer.

I am Army but we do have Marines co-located here with us and I see their headgear on a daily... Our PX (AAFES Mafia) here is also a MCX (MCCS) so it has clothing sales...
The EGA is stitched
Here is another source as well : http://www.emarinepx.com/mm5/merchan...egory_Code=OHW
I hope that helps

I remember having to iron-on the EGA on the cover and cammies!

As with all things, changes and improvements have come along. I remember when the Kevlar was our biggest up grade in the ARMY. Better than the steel pot
The PX/BX/NEX/MCX are all money mills now. I remember when Rustler Jeans were the high end stuff
