Where her drink? 
Is that photo of the female officer smoking from an article talking about the new headwear?

 

Old photo.  I couldn't find a new photo.

 

Another of her.  No context.  Have to wonder what's going on.

I sure hope so.  The beret is stupid!  Doesn't block sun or rain and most personnel don't know how to wear it correctly.

Isn't that cute?

 

JFWIW I agree that berets are stupid headgear, I don't care who wears them.  Sort of a beanie on steroids, but useless for  anything but a status symbol.

 

If I were Special Forces type soldier I would be grossly offended by every other military group that wore them.

 She just came to the realization that it wasn’t a bad dream, last night really happened and there’s photos to prove it. :P

Aha! I know. She’s upset because there are no drinks. ;)

 

 

…and she’s headed for a secluded weather station in the North Atlantic.

I think the beret is stupid headgear for any US military group. Proper for French lounge lizards of the 40’s & 50’s and no one else.
