I honestly think it would depend on who you talked to. Allot of the older people would probably have a problem with it because we fought communism for 50 years.

Besides that the main reason I wouldn't wear it is because it was a Red Army symbol(the badge atleast). Sense you didn't go through the training to earn the badge, I wouldn't wear it. I know this is weird, but would you wear a US Army Beret with flash patch or USMC EGA on a hat around town? Hopefully not...

I can see where some people might consider it disrespectful but personally i wouldn't think much of it. If anything it's a piece of world history and as long as you're not standing on a street corner preaching Marxism it should be ok. It's not something i've ever heard of being disrespectful.

That wasn't Russia, that was the USSR. Wink. You have to understand that the USSR was our most feared and hated enemy. It would be like if your son wore a hat that was the symbol of Al Quida in a few years. Sure the war may be over but the symbol still means something to allot of people. I would just take off the badge if I were you... Or buy a different hat! Very Happy

I say wear it. Who cares, you can't get arrested for it, so it's nothing wrong.

People wear hats with pot leaves on them, so why does it matter?

I've seen hats and clothes with:
- Pot & drug themes
- "Genitals"
- Middle fingers
- Cuss words and other insults
- Racism
- Sexism

So a hat with a hammer and sickle and star shouldn't be any different, if not less looked down upon.

Eh, wear it, but if a former service member or active duty service member asks you to take it off, take it off.

Might not want to wear it to like public sporting events or something, because yeah it might offend a certain selection of people.

But wearing it to school or around wherever (and of course in your house) would be fine.

Look, have you read history? It's insulting in my opinion because of all the time that we fought them, then eventually "won" only to see our young people wear the very symbol we feared and despised?
Drugs on a hat are one thing, but does that kill "innocent" soldiers? That symbol represents Communism, communism sparked the Korean War, the Vietnam war and many wars today!
And just because it's against the law doesn't make it wrong, it makes it illegal. So if something is illegal, it's not wrong? I'm sorry to say this and sound like a bi*tch, but thats the dumbest thing I've ever heard!

I think I agree with creed. It would be good for a collector item, though.

Who ever said that..? I was saying people can get away with wearing much worse things than a "symbol".


Jesus, let the guy wear his hat.

We actually never fought the USSR, in fact we fought with them during WWII against Germany. We had our disagreements on ideals and some tension moments from being the two most powerful countries on the planet but we never came to actual fighting on a battlefield.

there are two types of war:
Shooting
And
Cold War

America MADE the USSR's economy collapse in the Cold War! We were in an intelligence, financial and technological war with them.
War is not just when two nations shoot at each other, here is a definition;
"an active struggle between competing entities; "a price war"; "a war of wits"; "diplomatic warfare."
We WERE at war with the USSR back in the day, just a different type.
