Fade to Black

The Secretary of the Army decided to drop the black berets from active duty except for some ceremonial occasions.  This is a small, but important correction after ten years of a misguided policy and complaints from soldiers. The only thing it accomplished was to force the Rangers to drop their black berets and adopt a sand colored replacement (SF will still wear green and airborne has maroon.)

The Rangers should be allowed to reclaim the traditional black berets and the Army should refocus its attention on something more important - like what camouflage pattern is the best for the Middle East theaters!
