US Special Forces Beret

Recommended Posts

 Thought I might share this beret is attributed to a member that served with the US 20th Special Forces Group ( SFG )...
With some help from the gents over at the US Military Forum it has been determined that the 20th SFGA with white border was adopted on the 8th of May 1973..
This particular example shows great wear and and age and has that been there done that look I like so much in my headgear the cap badge is nicely marked D 22 on the reverse side which puts the age somewhere in the mid to late 1960's...
The beret itself is a private purchase example which as of yet the producer has not been 100% identified but there are a couple of possibilities and both are known to have been used by ( SFG's )
