    Nobody at the 21st at Kapaun, or at NATO staff weather, AOC, and the weather flight at the 86th OSS on Ramstein wears the Grey Beret. You can only wear the beret if you are an active jumper in a J Coded billet. When I was at the 21st I had to wear the patrol cap just like the rest of the Legs, even though I just came from a jumping assignment. I don't think there is a J-Coded weather position anywhere in the KMC area. So the only ones you would see would be the one there TDY or transiting through.

    Good point, I really didn't think about that. I think for a bit they were allowing the instructors to wear theirs at Keesler (maybe to serve as motivation for ISC students?). And I think the closest J-Coded weather slots are in Italy. Not sure if there are any in Germany.

    You are correct, in certain situations exceptions can be made for jumpers no longer in a J-Coded billet to wear the beret, especially at schools where it can be used as a recruiting device. The closet jump billets you will see near Ramstein is at Stuttgart at SOCAF.

    ^This.

    This gay-ness just hit my unit/base. What I find more amazing is how some people are happy about it. Thank god it isn't mandatory. I'd have to take leave every Friday until I was out of leave because of this non-sense. I'm sure that those who don't wear one will be interrogated at every opportunity to determine why their morale is so low.
