It's not just military. Our public schools are failing in teaching grammar and writing skills. Spelling is a lost art. I remember seeing a car that someone paid $$ for a custom paint job. Must have been a 55 as they painted 'DOUBLE NICKLES' on the sides and hood. I wondered whether the owner even knew. How do you fix that one? A total redo?
Breaks my heart when I see highly paid people posting serious misspellings on tv. How sad. How embarrassing for Our Country.

How do you go from wearing a PT uniform on a plane to stolen valor to grammar police in less than 10 seconds?

You can't even wear them to the PX on most posts, why in the wide, wide world of sports would you want to wear them on a plane??

I've seen Guard or Reserve OFFICERS and SNCOS walk around in stores, and parking lots with no cover. Guess once they get away from their duty site, Uniform regs don't mean so much anymore.

MSgt Jesse Tiede - MSgt--I am Guard and I promise you that I always wear my cover outside, and always maintain military bearing. If fact, many people recognize me as military even out of uniform. And if I came across another Guard member not wearing cover outside (or not saluting, etc.), I would make correction. Speaking strictly for the Guard, we take great pride in our professionalism and military decorum.

CH (CPT) (Join to see) - Well, Sir, I swear I saw a Senior NCO and a field grade officer, in a gas station in Kansas, just about 2 months ago. They were joking around, as only comrades in arms can do, and NEITHER ONE had a Cover on! I saw a third guy pumping gas, and he was under the awning with no hat, and it wasn't readily apparent what his rank was. But it was apparent that they were all travelling together when the first two walked out and got into the POV that was being fueled. Now, Chaplain, I'm NOT saying ALL Guard/ Reserve personnel do this, but that I had SEEN SOME do it! Every outfit, especially Active Duty, has SOMEBODY who is prone to be an embarrassment! As a retired SNCO myself, I tend to pay attention anytime I see anybody in uniform, be it Class As', or utilities... Thank you for your service, Padre', and, thank you, especially for the work you do! You may not ever know just how much your services are needed, out there in the ranks...

For Marines it's a no go. Army could be different, but I highly doubt it. PT uniforms are strictly for PT.

LCDR Robert Russnogle - Consider yourself fortunate then. We were even warned by our CO's about the dangers of being in uniform off post. This continued through mid 70's as I recall. Some travelers did not have access to their personal clothing before traveling. I agreed with others in keeping a very low profile as not to draw attention to yourself. Sometimes the trouble makers would just find you.

I've witness a different kind of disciplined in today's servicemen and women I guess it's from all the watered down policies injected by a certain Administration, for instance PT seems to favored sports of a feminine flavor no more hard nose character building compat football and blood and guts events. As a Viet Nam era 13 year Army Veteran it's MY opinion that we are to implement warrior fighting spirit discipline among the proud US Military, that's why wimps and undisciplined duds breaking of UCMJ.

LCDR Robert Russnogle - Yes Sir. Although I am Just a Nam era Vet we were treated bad just like the others but it was tough in those days. Guess it also depended what Airport you arriving at or flying out of.
