Pith Helmets Continued

I was reading an entry from Sgt. (E4) T. W. Stewart, USMC 1952 – 1955 on the past wearing of Pith Helmets.

I was stationed at "C" Co. NAS Agana, Guam for 18 months between 1966 and 1968. Our regulation uniform was khakis, blouse and trousers, and regulation cover was a Pith Helmet. I still have mine with the large, black EGA still screwed on to the front of it.

I was reading Cpl T. Buchinsky’s post about the Pith Helmet at NAS Guam reminded me about my TDY in Marine Barracks Guam at Naval Station aka Big Navy. Pith Helmets were a requirement especially if you were on Guard Duty back in 1989-90. Sadly the closed the Marine Barracks in Guam but the Marnes on Island are still a force to reckon with.
