Greetings to all,
Here is one for the Experts. This is the Memorial Day parade in Forest Park, Illinois, 1969. Has anyone ever seen headgear like this before. This was my Grandfather's outfit. He was the VFW Post 7181 Commander several times and I remember the guys to always have a sence of humor but this one I can't figure out. It looks like a Peter Pan type cap in red with a small white feather on the right side. Many of them were also part of the Military Order of The Cooties, could this be part of that organization's headgear.
Of course there is no one left alive to ask so this might be lost to history but I thought you would get a kick out of it. All of these guys were WW2 Veterans of course. Just curious! Thanks for any help!
God Bless Them All,
