Higher-ranking female sailors say farewell to bucket caps

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

The Navy’s female officers and chief petty officers last week ditched their “bucket” caps, a dress-uniform staple for women of these ranks since World War II.

They now must don unisex covers that resemble men’s dress-uniform head covers.

Women who are E-6 and below will continue to wear the bucket covers, also known as female combination caps, with their four-button dress coats until Dec. 31, 2019, when those coats are phased out. https://www.stripes.com/news/higher-ranking-female-sailors-say-farewell-to-bucket-caps-1.554813
