A veteran of numerous campaigns in the field, steeped in traditions, and in active service in various styles from 1850 through 1939, the campaign hat is a most appropriate symbol for a Drill Sergeant. The campaign hat appeared on the scene again in early 1964. The present style of the campaign hat evolved from the straw or felt slough "Hardee Hat" of the 1850's through the center crease designs of the 1880's, to the present day modified "Montana Peak" which was adopted in 1911.
