Here are two 'boonie ' hats I have recently obtained. The proper term for these are "hot weather sun hats' and this is DBDU, desert camouflage or tri-color camo. This scheme was adopted in 1999 and is still in use today although even newer color patterns have come and and are now being phased out.
Both of these hats are used and have been worn in either Iraq or Afghanistan.
The first hat belonged to a second lieutenant and the second belonged to a enlisted man named Jamison with his name also in Afghans, probably Pashto? This is somewhat common, I believe, for our military people serving in ISAF (International Security Assistance Force).
