Within the Air Force only select units have the honor to wear a beret and Security Forces is one of them. The navy blue wool beret is part of the standard USAF Security Forces uniform.

The navy blue beret was first worn in 1956 by Strategic Air Command’s Elite Guard. But it wasn’t until 1976 that it officially became part of the Security Forces uniform. Its emblem depicts a falcon over an airfield with the motto Defensor Fortis.
