It’s official: Army unveils brown beret, new patch for military advisers, SFAB | Army Times

Last October, when photos of a colored beret designed for the newly formed Security Force Assistance Brigade first leaked online, Army Chief of Staff Gen. Mark Milleyresponded to the backlash by vowing to redesign the cover to an unequivocal shade of brown.

Milley and the 1st Security Force Assistance Brigade unveiled the new beret Thursday during the unit’s activation ceremony at Fort Benning, Georgia. SFAB soldiers also donned a revamped unit patch and tab, retaining the sword and spearhead elements of the original.

“The beret, flash and uniform patches are a recognition of the heritage of military training and advising, codified as a professional Army community,” Milley said in a statement.
