My Favorite Hat

My Favorite Hat

By: Brian Chambers

So I bought this hat when It was first released, and it quickly became the only hat I will wear. Even in the dead of Illinois winters I had this baby on. My wife gives me a hard time about wearing it all the time but it doesn’t stop me. I have gotten a lot of compliments on it and they ask me where I got it so I give them the info. I think it might be time for a new one, at least one that looks good to wear to church. ?

    It’s a fricking “COVER” 100% of the time. If you went to USMC Boot Camp you should know better. It’s never a “#at”. I can’t even say that nasty word!! Always remember what the HELL you’re taught or someday your D.I. Will appear and choke your ASS out….USMC SSgt 0369 VietNam veteran 66-67. Semper Fi to all True Marines……

    I have 5 Marine covers and 1 Pow-Mia cover and I rotate them and wear one every day. Won’t go out without my cover. Oorah, Semper Fi. Quang Tri 1969, MAG-39.
