Republic of Vietnam Enlisted Brown Visor Cap


Description: Green-brown material, late 1960s-1970s version enlisted badge. Unlike the VNAF or Navy, photographs of regular army enlisted personnel in visor caps (particularly from the mid-1960s) are very rare. The bulk of enlisted army personnel never received dress uniforms, and (arguably) caps of this pattern were very seldom worn by non-officers. A theory suggests the only enlisted troops who wore caps like this were officer cadets (pre-commission) or ceremonial units, such as the presidential guards. In general, army visor caps (as with dress uniforms) came in a variety shades of khaki to brown to dark greenish-brown. White army dress uniforms (with caps) were also in use.
