Army Chief: Advise-and-Assist Units to Wear Brown, Not Green, Berets
The Army's chief of staff may soon decide on the specific shade of brown beret that will be worn by soldiers in the new Security Force Assistance Brigades, despite media reports that the specialized unit will don berets similar to those worn by Special Forces. The controversy began when an image of an olive-greenish beret surfaced in an Oct. 26 Soldiersystems.net post that indicated the 1st SFAB would wear the green beret, which has striking similarities to the traditional Army Special Forces beret. The service plans to stand up six of the advise-and-assist brigades — five active and one National Guard. For more details, see this Military.com article.
