    It took me about a minute to figure it out, it was the K9 Stetson that clinched it.

    Ok first that`s obviously an April fools day joke, and second, the Cavalry already wears those in the Army. I have one and I have the option to wear that with my dress uniform instead of the beret, and some Cav units have one or two days a month where all stetson holders can wear them with their ACUs. Once you deploy or serve in a combat zone you can also earn Spurs to wear and you can wear those in dress uniform or ACUs.

    There is a tradition of these hats.


    I`m being dead serious. This is a classic picture of Teddy Roosevelt riding a moose.

    THIS IS FAKE. It may have been faked at the time. We scream and cry SHOP nowadays reflexively.

    BUT LOOK AT IT. Look at the "water" around his leg. Look at home much clearer the focus is on his body then on the hair of the moose. What is he holding on to? SHOPPED.

    Shopped. Am I wrong? We`re talking a picture from 1900 - SHOWN IN LIFE MAGAZINE.

    FAKED. Propaganda faked. Patriotically faked. But faked none the less.

    And its a LIE.

    Look how crisp the detail is around the outline between his body and the moose hair. That picture appeared in life magazine on Jan. 1, 1900.

    Sorry everyone that likes the hat if you read at the bottom it says the army will officially adopt the stetson on April Fools day 2012... and lol if you go to the fourth picture it says that the K-9 units will also be wearing these plus special issue "Doggles" haha so im assuming this is a joke but I might not be but im almost positive.

    It`s an April Fools Joke. The Army loves the patrol cap and the beret too much to switch to the cowboy hat.

    The army took the black berret fom the United States Army Rangers in 2000. I busted my ass for that thing and even to this day it pains me to see regualr soldiers wearing the black berret. SO Iwhoffman you logic is flawed cause they passed that poo within the year.

    Nice to see the US Army has a sense of humor. Why do so many Canadians on I-A-B sound so bitter all the time. Is it too cold up there or what?

    They are only approved ceremonial hats. Not likely to see the soldiers wearing these anywhere but to inspection or a funeral. :P
    A quick look online shows that most of the basic felt ones cost 200 - 300 dollars for an official Stetson Brand military hat.

    Hint: under the main picture, click on the slideshow button which forwards them to the next set - you will see a subtle addition which totally completes the joke.
