In late 2001 US Army Special Forces teams were deployed to Afghanistan. This was a direct response to the 9/11 terrorist attacks on the twin towers in New York City, as well as the Pentagon and the downing of United Airlines Flight 93 in Pennsylvania. Once they got boots on the ground in Afghanistan, Army Special Forces teams took to wearing FDNY and NYPD hats to honor those heroes that had lost their lives saving others on 9/11.
Over the course of the war in Afghanistan and elsewhere in the Global War on Terror, the wear of baseball caps became tradition. Teams designed and wore custom hats to honor their country, their teams, their hometowns, and the units they worked alongside. We continue that tradition today with the Axe and Arrows Team Hat, as a way to honor the intrepid history of those Americans that came before us. From the founders of our nation like George Washington and Thomas Jefferson up to the firefighters in the World Trade Center, and the Green Berets on horseback in the Hindu Kush, we honor them all here at Intrepid Tactics.
