Brunes;4324271]You are all over the map man. I don't mind if you have a
different opinion- but it is LEGALLY WRONG to wear the uniform the way they are
wearing it. And IMO it is incredibly disrespectful and distasteful.
I dont know what the whole bold "LEGALLY WRONG"
is therebecause I never said it wasnt, see prev. post infact go back and read all my post:
Its a federal offense to wear the uniform of the commisioned
. Such as in movies they alter it/not wear it completely correct to regs to keep the apperance that they are not trying to impersonate a military member. It is a fine line they walk when doing so. Being a Vet who has served 2 tours in combat the fashion acc. he is wearing is not a regulation military uniform so it is just that a fashion acc. Now had a been wearing a reg. uniform without earning the right to do so to me is a sign of disrespect.
772(F) says if they are portraying the military for theatrical reasons they are
allowed to wear the uniform (debunking your messed
up uniforms in film argument).
And now the complete section F which stated "In good light" i.e not to discredit:
(f) While portraying a member of the Army, Navy, Air Force, or
Marine Corps, an actor in a theatrical or motion-picture production
may wear the uniform of that armed force if the portrayal does not
tend to discredit that armed force
I like how you keep leaving that last part out. Now compare every spoof movie which does not portray the Armed forces in good light and watch the uniforms, then watch actual portrials and notice the uniforms are down to a T.
771(1)&(2) says if you wear the uniform or parts of the uniform or things
that look like the uniform it's illegal. That debunks your "out of regs"
As far as my "Debunking" of the out of regs comment, mess your uniform up and walk around a the first thing a superior will tell you is " you are out of uniform" why? because you are wearing it out of regulation.
You are welcome to keep thinking it's no big deal- but get the points of law
correct. If you are going to point out that you've done combat duty and were a
vet and then make claims that are incorrect- You are going to damage your own
credibility and look like a fool, all while muddying the water on an important
Now for the finale, I am going to keep looking at it like they arent wearing the uniform correctly, its out of regs, so it isnt a military uniform, because that is how I view it. Your a moderator so you can go back and read all my post because again NO WHERE was it stated by me that it wasnt illegal just that " Such as in movies they alter it/not wear it completely correct to regs to keep the apperance that they are not trying to impersonate a military member. It is a fine line they walk when doing so". Tell me if Tom Cruise served time for the movie a few good men, then look at the folks that caused the reason for items like the stolen valor act which used the uniforms and medals to deceive the people. Just trying to use my freedom of expression, oh wait?
