Marine Corps makeover

The Obama era Marine Corps is said to be considering a make-over for traditional Marine Corps headgear known as covers.

The New York Post says the Obama team wants a more unisex look for the Corps and the headgear that goes with it. That brings us to what some have dubbed "girly" hats.

A simple uniform update? Or is this proposed change one more element of a soft purge where the administration does what it can to nudge more traditional Marines to call it quits and leave the Corps.

The new covers aren't a done deal. Not just yet. There's a chance the Corps will keep its current covers, with female Marines wearing a slightly modified version, according to the Marine Corps Times.
