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

What about regular clothing made to look military style? Like a military jacket that's obviously not "real"

I have many friends/family members that served as well. They will tell you straight up, that's not what they fought for. That's just what a fringe of "look at me, I'm different" group of people want normal people to think. It's not true.

agreed, probably the most positive thing about this war is taking the fight to the terrorists, and getting off our soil, let the clueless be clueless, it's better for our kids to be running around worrying about what Santa's gonna bring them, or if they're going to get into the game this week, instead of learning how to field strip a weapon, or make an IED, society will always be this way, strong take care of the weak, concerned do the work for the apathetic

Completely different, IMO. A military style, vs. actual uniform and wearing actual medals from battle is no comparison.

I don't see a problem with that. The Medals were the issue, as far as I'm concerned. Those Medals mean more to the average person than they will ever realize.

And the weak and apathetic take jabs at the strong and concerned. Awesome!

The fact that they wanted to ban me from the store because I pointed out a total discrepancy


I'm going to guess that he was banned for being a hell of a lot more of a nuisance than just politely pointing something out.

who says it's right? our constitution guarantees all of us the same rights, those that choose not to fight, and we have an all volunteer force, have the same rights as those that do, I haven't taken a side in this, just voiced my opinion, I am OK with these people exercising their rights, it's when we begin to have an elitist group with the mentality that they must do the thinking for everyone because they know what's best, is when we begin to have serious problems, I think history bears this out

What the frick are you talking about? I thought this was a discussion about people wearing military medals that they didn't earn and about people not realizing that these people earned those medals defending their right to do so. An elitist group with the mentality to think for everyone? WTF? I sure hope they drug test you before you fly.

It was a discussion about someone allegedly wearing authentic military medals that they did not earn, and look where it's ended up. I think I've made my point. Good night ya'll.

I'm not sure what point you were trying to make, actually. Just a guess, but I bet you are a Liberal.

My favorite part of this thread is how 90% of the participants don't recognize Buster From Arrested Development.

This many pages and no one has brought up the possibility that the top could have been his father's, brother's, uncle's, etc. who may have been KIA?

This really is a silly thing over which to get upset--especially upset enough to get thrown out of a store trying to make a point few people understand or care about if they did.

Silly for someone that has never put his/her life on the line or for someone who has never lost someone who served their Countrey.

Not really. I've known a few boys that did that. Most of the time they were the ones with medals on the jacket. The ones who do it as a fashion statement rarely have the medals to go along with the top.

My basis for how military men react are my Grandfather and Uncles, who were career military, reactions to similar situations. They roll their eyes, shrug, and walk on. They weren't the type to get all worked up over little things or puff out their chests. The military was their job. They did it well enough to earn several promotions and make a good living, but it was just a job.

Maybe my Uncles and Dad growing up on bases around the world made them view things differently than the people that become involved in the military culture later in life.
