Curious to see this dudes' "combat record." Been around more military than civilian for more than half of my life, and I've said it on here before, the ones who have truly been in harms way aren't the chest beaters when they come home, it's usually the REMFs. Most vets wouldn't have given this a second thought. Attention ho imo.




Truth....

and well put.

re: Army veteran banned from Old Navy store over teen employee in Marine uniform


Seems like there has to be more.

1. Big fricking deal he was wearing a uniform wrong
2. Big fricking deal...the vet pointed it out

Just like I bitch about people crying about the confederate flag...same applies here.

Has to be more complex than that.

Ah crap, I change what I just said after seeing that pic. If memory serves me, the Marine Corps manual strictly prohibits wearing that jacket with either a Pith helmet, or a Sherlock Holmes hat after October 15. My bad.

I doubt the guy made his feelings known about the jacket discreetly, things don't escalate to being removed from the store for simply saying I don't agree with you wearing that jacket.

Exactly, boots are dumb. If he had a full rack and was a major and only 20 years old that would be a different story.

We need a picture of the other guy.

I think you are entirely missing the point. The employee was not in the military. He was wearing the dress blue jacket as a fashion piece. No Marine would wear the dress blue jacket to work at Old Navy.

That would just be gauche, unless it was the Marine Corps birthday.

If you are talking to me, I didnt miss the point. Its just the uniform regs change. Without knowing the exact regulations and what uniform this kid was wearing its hard to tell if he was out of uniform or not. Especially, since there is no picture in the article.

Secondly, I wouldnt know if a Soldier's uniform was correct down to every detail. And I dont personally care to even try to understand all their ribbons for not tying and bs like that.

The point I was making was that Id be willing to bet that most Soldiers couldnt tell me how my dress blues are supposed to be setup. And I couldtn care less how their Army Greens are to be setup. Without a picture, this is just reaching for a story.

This employee is clearly not in the military. I don't understand why you are arguing about military regulations on uniforms changing. Also, USMC regulations for dress uniforms haven't changed in like 50 years. Regardless, this is an old story.

You're entitled to your opinion but I think you're out of line with this. I know this is asking a lot, but try stepping back and thinking about this issue for a minute.

My old command would think differently, I dont really care though.

quote:

Because they have, and they are different for every branch. The USMC regs have changed for cammies in two years. For boots alone they changed like three times since I went through boot camp. It doesnt effect the majority of Marines, but it still effects a good bit.

Regardless, this is an old story.

Truth, and its a dumb story that none of us can even argue about because we werent there and dont know what he was wearing.
