And so were the berets that we saw Nolan and Uncle Eddie wearing in season one during the flashbacks.

Trion, and I think you should forward this on to the show's crew or maybe that one guy who works on the crew and posts here catches this, this is how one properly wears a military beret.

Notice the lack of:

Shtako sticking out of the side of the wearer's head;
The sizing cords not hanging out of the back; and
No fuzz.

There can be some variation. For instance, in the above photos of various U.S. Army soldiers (from top to bottom: regular Joe in black, Ranger in tan, SF in green) you'll see that the right side usually dips to the middle of the right ear. For the Brits Canadians, and French, their berets tend to dip down only to the top of the ear.

Since no one has time to read the above paragraph here are some photos:

Get your beret straightened out ASAP as right now it currently looks like:

great now that you've covered how american military wears a beret maybe you could look at canada, france or one of the other world forces that wear them. I think you'll see the US military is the only service that wears them like that

I don't even understand why they have them droop so low...

I talked about that FYI. Read the entire post.

EDIT: Added some pics for the international community.
