"He's out of uniform"!!!!!!
With what our soldiers are being asked to endure, right now, and the lack of support from the government that is requiring it, I think that comment is offensive!
A great many of our returning vets are suffering PTSD and/or physical damage that will last a lifetime.
Many have had to come to grips with seeing friends blown apart in front of them.
Yet your only concern is he isn't spit and polish and making a good little ornament for your mistaken impression of American superiority in all things!
I apologize, as I know this is a photo forum, but, you sir, dishonored a soldier!
BS. If you are going to wear the uniform and serve, you had better wear it properly, especially around civilians. You are a representative of the service when you wear your uniform in public.
PTSD and battle injuries don't excuse not wearing the uniform properly.
As a recently honorably discharged vet myself, I completely agree. 110% agree. Full beard and a tank top? C'mon. There's a level of discipline and professionalism that goes into that uniform. There's no excuse for this. I wouldn't be caught dead wearing my dress uniform this way.
...As a veteran of 13 years, I feel the same.
