"(Unit Name withheld) BCT ordered to remove combat patches during training at Fort NoMatter so the ones without them don't get ‪‎hurt feelings‬.

Reason? "The unit just returned from Afghanistan and almost everyone has a patch but the large influx of new soldiers are E1 and E2s that have never deployed and they are saying they are left out because they don't have a patch."

Ssgt Melissa Post, you must have joined Marines or Army because you wanted to "feel strong" lol. Whats it like to be inferior and weak? Do you have children? If you do you cried and bitched and moaned when you pushed those kids through your cunt. Thats more emotions and feelings than anyone in the world can have! I got you bitch! Have fun playing warrior princess!

A1C Mike Hernandez - Hey, watch your language please! It's one thing to curse at the enemy in the heat of battle (Been there, done that) It's something else to vent at a fellow soldier with whom you disagree.

This can't be true.
If it is, the Brigade Commander or whatever schmuck came up with this needs to hang up their boots.

SSG David A - Negative. I found the original story complete with press releases from the BDE Commander of 1/4. I put it in the thread above about 1/5 of the way down. They rescinded it eventually, trying to make some kind of point.

Absolutely not! I'm a non-combat 20 yr vet who believes those who served in combat, earned those patches and have every right to wear and display them however they choose. As for those candyasses getting their feelings hurt because of someone wearing a combat patch, they probably don't belong there anyway.

Reminds me when General Shenseki's "Army of One" got to wear black ranger berets so they could feel cool in the motor pool and supply depots. The officer corps is full of pansies since Obama was sworn in and the further time progresses, more of them become General Officers with the capacity to permanently damage all branches of the military PC bull crap. Then they come out and jump the line and engage in political punditry when they have an obligation to act like officer in their retirement.

You don't have a patch and your feelings are hurt? Here fill this out. And when you are done, see that Colonel sitting at his desk? Yea, the one without a patch either. Yea, you turn that into him.

Outstanding report SSG if it wouldn't cause a problem I say you would be the man that should be in charge of the "resubmit in 30 days for final disapproval" stamp
