Vietnam War U-Tapao Thailand US Air Force Boonie Hat. HE 341. - HE 341
Boonie hats got their name, legend has it, from a Tagalog word “bundok,” which means mountain. The term “boondocks” started getting used by Army service personnel during the Philippine American War which started in 1899 when Filipinos rose up to fight for their independence rather than be ruled by another colonial leader. Boondocks was used as military slang for Filipinos from the mountains. The term evolved to mean anything associated with the jungle or remote wilderness. Over the years it became “boonie” for short.
