Product Description

HISTORY

The  boonie hat was introduced to the United States Armed Forces during the  Vietnam War, when U.S. Army Green Berets began wearing them in the  field, along with Australian and Army of the Republic of Vietnam units.  These hats were locally procured; the camo cloth was usually salvaged  from other uniform items or with the former from a parachute or made up  by the tailor. The name is derived from "boonie", the abbreviated form  of boondocks (itself originally American military slang derived from  Tagalog bundok, "mountain", during the Philippine-American War.
