(4) Proper wear position.

(a) See para 3–5 for wear policy on the beret.

(b) The garrison cap is worn with the front vertical crease of the cap centered on the forehead, with the front lower

portion of the cap approximately 1 inch above the eyebrows (approximately the width of the first two fingers). The top of the cap is opened to cover the crown of the head. The bottom of the rear vertical crease will fit snugly to the back of the head. Hair will not be visible on the forehead below the front bottom edge of the cap.
