Do you have to be a female to wear those shirts?
They look pretty comfortable.
Who's to say during an era when men can apparently get pregnant, too?

I thought they ditched the Dixie Cup, or is it just for the ladies nowadays?

The NSU is worn with the garrison cap, the NWU with the 8 point cap or boonie hat (primarily Seabee units), coveralls with the unit ball cap, and Service Dress with the Dixie cup (E1-E6). There is also a cold weather knit cap.

The Dixie cup became standard for females several years ago (2015?) replacing the combination cover (a sort of short top hat with a black brim and white crown).

As I understand it, it is still worn by PO1 and below with their crackerjacks. It's been replaced by the ball cap for use with working uniforms, and that asinine Service Dress C with its fore-and-aft hat has got to go, but it's still used with the service dress blue uniform.

I bet the Chi Coms are just shaking in their boots at the thought of facing our military today.
