When would a soldier NOT wear his helmet?

I'm working on a Marine in Fallujah and the helmets I've been wanting to use don't fit that well with my headsculpt. I'm thinking of using either a boonie cap or a fleece watch cap. When would a soldier wear one of these? Would he be out on patrol not wearing his helmet? I remember there were a few scenes in "Jarhead" where they were just wearing boonies. Is that accurate?

I look forward to any help you guys can offer.

I've never seen a pic of a marine in Fallujah without a helmet. They usually take it off after a mission or at rest in a safe place.

You have now! They're wearing their vests, but not their helmets for some reason.

I'm pretty sure those weren't taken in Fallujah...
Sorry. I forgot this was a Fallujah specific tread.
