IMPORTANT DA PAM 670-1 WARNING: The DA PAM 670-1 (para. 13-12d) states that the hat will be the same material as the coat. We highly recommend purchasing and wearing the Professional™ hat with a Professional™ uniform.
Is there a wear out date on the female officer blue service cap? I had Cadets opt not to get it because they do not want to spend money on uniform item that is being phased out? Do women wear the saucer cap? What replaces the company grade blue service cap for women?

No, we are not aware of any official phasing out of the female ASU hats. We expect that when the ASU transitions to back to the Dress Blue uniform, the wear policies will be similar to those of the previous Dress Blue uniforms. The Dress Blues had specific male and female headgear for functions occurring before Retreat.
We have not heard of any plan for females to begin wearing the male ASU service caps either. While the new Army Green Service Uniform (AGSU) prototypes have unisex service and garrison caps, we are not aware of any plans to apply the unisex headgear concept to the ASU/Dress Blues. If there is a change, the ASU wear-out date is in 2028 so there is plenty of time to get use out of existing uniform items.

Female General Officers wear a special G/O hat band. We do not sell this item, and I regret that I do not know of a vendor that sells them. Sorry I could not be of more help, please let us know if you have any other questions.
