Olive drab wool garrison cap without trim.
Gift of Frank L. Jackson
According to the accession records, this cap was worn by an American soldier stationed at Panama during World War II. Caps were worn without braid by enlisted personnel before being assigned to a unit. Also, braid was sometimes removed in theaters of operations to prevent identification of military units.
Due to ongoing research, information about this object is subject to change.
