USCG 9th PSU beret


Recommended Posts

Here is a better picture. I have a buddy that was in the 9th PSU. He said they ordered these before going over. post-105435-15838801264148.jpg

Firefighter - thanks for posting the picture of the beret. I always suspected that one of the three PSUs that deployed ISO Operation Desert Storm/Shield wore a beret, but never had any luck finding a clear picture of it in use until recently. Including the two photos above I am up to three sightings. Still trying to find an original beret with the patch.

Thanks for the first picture.

 

I have a 9th PSU DBDU, first time I've come across a picture of it in the field.

I dont think my buddy would let his beret go. Not my field of collecting but I would love to have one.

There is a picture of a Persian Gulf deployed Coastie wearing a beret (although the insignia is not visible) on page 121 of the book “The Coast Guard” edited by Tom Beard.  He is dressed in chocolate chips and armed with an M16A1.

Here is my desert top from the 9th PSU.  There can’t be too awful many out there.

Looking at the picture in the original post, I believe this is the same coastie from the pic in the book I mentioned- just a different view. (Same sunglasses, facial features etc)

Figured it would be nice to see the picture in higher resolution
