United States Air Force Airman Battle Uniform (ABU) Christian Chaplain's Caps

"Since July 29, 1775, approximately 25,000 Army Chaplains have served as religious and spiritual leaders for 25 million Soldiers and their Families. From military installations to deployed combat units and from service schools to military hospitals, Army Chaplains and Chaplain Assistants have performed their ministries in the most religiously diverse organization in the world. Always present with their Soldiers in war and in peace, ArmyChaplains have served in more than 270 major wars and combat engagements. Nearly 300 Army Chaplains have laid down their lives in battle. Six have been awarded the Medal of Honor. Their love of God, Country and the American Soldier has been a beacon of light and a message of hope for all those who have served our nation. Currently, over 2,900 Chaplains are serving the Total Army representing over 130 different religious organizations."

(as well called "floppy hat")
This hat only can worn in the desert of the Middele East

The ABU Utility Cap can be worn everywhere.

All Christian Chaplains, Catholic and Protestant, wear the USAF Chaplain's Cross on their hats and shirts. Jewish Chaplains would wear the tablets of the Ten Commandments on their hats, Muslim Chaplains the crescent and Buddhist Chaplains the Dharmacakra

The hats and caps are worn in these two fabrics:

1. ABU

2. ACU

Many thanks to Monsignor Mark Rowan for sending me these two hats.
