Depends on how long ago it was you're talking about. Green Beret, Maroon Beret, half flash, full flash, 18 series, everybody wears a beret, nobody wears a beret - all depends on the time period.

Things in Group have pretty much settles down. 18 series wears the Green Beret - everybody else wears the Maroon Beret.

Of course that is all subject to change if some touchy feely General gets a wild hair up his ass.
