Wikimedia Commons has media related to Utility covers. This page uses Creative Commons Licensed content from Wikipedia view authors. All versions except those worn with the Navy Working Uniform, or those worn by Navy Seabees and Beachmasters, have the Marine Corps' Eagle, Globe, and Anchor insignia on the front above the bill, the Navy versions having the wearer's rank insignia instead.
During recruit training , Marine and Navy recruits are instructed in the proper method of wearing the utility cover.
The proper manner to wear the utility cover is with the bill facing forward on the wearer's head and with the cover being aligned with the head not 'leaning' to one side and worn so as to appear horizontal from the side, not at an angle as a baseball cap is sometimes worn.
