knitting for troops question

knitting a hat for someone in the military, it is not for them to be used while on duty, per se, but with them having that really closely cropped hair, do you make them the typical size for a man's head or go down a bit for snug fit?

Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. We ask ourselves, Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous? Actually, who are you not to be? We were born to make manifest the glory of God that is within us. And as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same. - Marianne Williamson

I think I'd make it a little small, but in a stretchy rib so it can expand comfortably or contract if need be.

my mom has been knitting wool beanies/ caps for a military charity effort (at least 12 so far) and she has made them in stockinette with a deep rib edge. that way, they don't have to be fit exactly, and they stretch.

she's been using wool that is usually sock yarn on small needles and they turn out soo soft and warm, but breathable.

if you want, I can ask if she's using a specific pattern for them.
did I say one project at a time?
