An old friend of mine seems to be upset that certain singers and actors wear military style uniforms in public. I don't know if he's talking about utilities or service uniforms but my guess is utilities. I mean, I can't see people sporting the AF Blues on a trip to the club but you never know. His line of thought is "If you want to wear the uniform, then join." So, I'm wondering. Does it bother anyone out there that people do this? Me...nope, not one bit. They're just clothes and there are no laws on the book that I know of that states people can't buy ABU, BDU or ACU knock-offs. The only issue that may arise is if some people adorn them to look just like military uniforms and then get caught doing something illegal. The initial media reports may identify a Marine, soldier, airman or sailor getting caught in uniform. However, once the dust settles and people realize that person wasn't in the military, it would be cleared up. Anyway, what say you?

eh, not a big deal. There is a pretty long tradition of "stars" wearing military uniform items. Though at least they used to be from thrift stores or whatever. Now you can go into any police uniform store and buy new tactical uniforms and gear off the shelf. hell, you can buy them online and never leave your house. It's so common that it isn't even a "statement" anymore.

Could care less as long as they are not trying to convince people they are veterans when they are not.

I went into a club in Tokyo last summer and all the hostesses where wearing Air Force uniforms, well just the blues shirts, one was wearing a service dress jacket and nothing else.

It didn’t bother me at all!

It bothers me more when I see actual service members out in their utilities after hours or on the weekends at shopping centers or eating establishments. Especially when they look like a frumpy bag of ass, it just gives off a bad impression (although civilians probably don't think twice when seeing them, but I look at them as turds). Granted there may be a reason, but 9 out 10 times I would be willing to bet not.

Anyone else bothered by this, or us it unique to me?

BTW, I do hold my tongue, as I don't believe it is something to cause undue attention too, but it just irritates the shit out of me.

I believe in the Navy and Marines, you can't go into public restaurants in utilities. I don't know about the Army but in the AF, you can visit a restaurant while in ABUs as long as the primary purpose of the place is not selling alcohol. You can also make short stops (like grocery store) but I have seen dudes in the mall wandering around while in ABUs. I have corrected a few in the day if they were doing something really embarrassing like acting like clowns.

I don't like the fact that certain celebrities wear the uniform. If they wear it fine, but if they wear it and it looks like crap. Then there is a problem right there.

I am a Former Marine myself and I used to hate going to Fayetteville NC to see my Army gf and we would go out to eat and there would be a soldier wearing his ACU. It just seems so unprofessional to me when I see soldiers wearing their ACU's out everywhere. Don't you guys have a dress uniform to wear out in town?

I guess that is an instance of a divergence in military culture; it isn’t a taboo for us to go to a fast food restaurant in our utility uniform. We aren’t supposed to go to a sit down restaurant where the civilian equivalent attire would not include “workers clothes”.

I know what you mean about wearing a dress uniform out on the town and I have to hand it to you Marines for looking sharp. Take Gomer Pyle for instance, he always cut an impressive image in his khakis and I always thought he was in the vanguard of the Marines when it came to hair styles. None of that”high & tight” business for PFC Pyle, no sir! He just applied a big old glob of Brylcreem or Dapper Dan pomade to his hair.

Every few years military uniform items become a popular fashion item. As long as they're not wearing a complete uniform or trying to pass themselves off as a military member, it doesn't bother me. A civilian friend of mine working across base had a civilian in his shop that liked to wear BDUs. They worked outdoors a lot and got dirty and the BDUs handled the work fairly well. The BDUs had no rank, name tag, patches, etc. to identify they as being military. His bosses, civilian and military, had no problem with him wearing the BDUs.

I have no problem with people wearing military "style" clothing. I've seen shirt and jackets with epaulettes on them, and what appears to be sown-on ribbons, and odds leaves on the collars and/or stripes on the sleeves. Things that don't resemble anything even close to US military uniforms. At best, they might look like some third world country dictator - and one with a cult of personality to be mocked and ridiculed, at that.

As long as there is no intent to pass for a member of the military, I don't see the harm.

Also, it's worth noting that civilians who work in the maritime and aviation industries generally wear clothing that's similar to what Navy and Air Force personnel wear. For example, when you go to the airport and you see pilots walking around... when you're on the airplane, and you're looking at the flight attendants up at the front... they're generally wearing blue suits with oxidized silver buttons, just like Air Force personnel.

On cruise ships... the management personnel are generally wearing suits that are similar to Navy officers' uniforms. Double-breasted black (okay, navy blue) suits with gold buttons; complete with white combination cover and the level of their position indicated by the number of stripes on the cuffs of their jackets. In the summer, they wear choker whites. Not sure if it's still practice for non-management personnel to wear jumper top suits that resemble crackerjacks, but I do know that this was the case on cruise ships at least at some point in history. This was actually the case on the Titanic.

I always used to laugh at Jacko when he went through that phase of wearing a Spec-4 insignia on his costumes. I think that was before his nose fell off but after he started luring little boys to Neverland for milk and cookies.

That's because it doesn't really look like a military rank. If I was never in the military, and I saw an Army specialist; I'd probably think he was some sort of cadet, or a member of something similar to Sea Cadets/Young Marines/Civil Air Patrol.

It is the most unusual of all our military rank insignias, except for maybe warrant officers.

If it was up to me, ALL Army E4's would be corporals. But, at the very least, "technician" should be used instead of specialist. Just give non-NCO E4's corporal stripes and put a "T" underneath it, like they did during in WWII. Or simply replace the "sham shield" with corporal stripes that have an "S" underneath.

The commercially available version of our (Naval Officer) uniforms are supplied by the same company that supplies Delta Airlines and a couple of cruise lines.

Regardless of country, naval uniforms are pretty recognizable around the world. Especially since we have different dress uniforms for summer and winter.

The only time this ever bothered me was one day when I was eating at Texas Roadhouse at a guy came in wearing his PT Gear. The most offensive part was the fact that short shorts on dudes went out of style in the 80s.

I understand about the fast food restaurant and that doesn't bother me too much anymore. But it irked the crap out of me when I saw the dude on Friday night at Bennigans in ACU's. Also I keep seeing Soldiers wearing their ACU's doing everything from getting married in ACU's to chilling out in town.

There's all kinds of stuff on the open market.

I see a lot of day laborers and construction workers wearing parts of old military working uniforms they got at a yard sale or thrift store. I'm talking the old woodland pattern stuff as well as current ACU and Marine Camouflage Uniform components.

I'm not fond of the idea of folks wearing the complete uniform that didn't earn the privilege of wearing it, but so long as they are not doing so for personal gain ...

Getting married in your ACUs is beyond dumb! Maybe if you decide to get married at the airport right before you get on the plane to deploy?

Nah, that scenario is even dumbier!

I guess I put it in the same category as country music and NASCAR, it's just dumb.

This is coming from a guy who has been raised in and around NASCAR all my life. NASCAR is dumb as crap now. They have turned away a majority of their core fans with high prices and different tracks. I remember as a kid going to Charlotte Motor Speedway and Rockingham, and going to Mark Martin's or Richard Petty's shops. But now they don't have Rockingham or N. Wilkesboro anymore and moved to the "BIGGER and BETTER" tracks. All the while leaving their core audience stuck with having to watch the race on tv.

They used to pan the camera to the stands all the time in the past, and now they hardly ever do it. It's because the stands are half full now when they used to be completely full.

I'm one of the very few non-Asians in America that doesn't claim so much as a drop of Native American ancestry.

Though, admittedly, I'm envious of full-blooded Native Americans. If I was one, I'd seriously get my rocks off by ****ing with "twinkies" and telling them off - with AUTHORITY!

But back to the whole uniform deal... I really don't care one way or the other unless, like I said, their intent is to pass for something that they're not - i.e., active duty or veterans. People have been wearing military or military-like apparel (and not in the same way that military personnel are required to wear them) for decades - maybe even centuries - as military uniforms have a long history of influencing fashion trends. Why kill something that may as well be considered a "tradition"?

My wife used to make a big deal about being part Indian. Then she did some serious research on her ancestry and discovered that the great-great-grandmother that she thought all along was Indian was in fact something else.

Well, living in California, you get only a couple chances to see a race...Fontana is down to one race per year...fun as hell camping out there for the weekend. I just wish they threw in a Truck series race with it.
I haven't been to Sonoma, not sure if it's worth it to watch a road course where you probably only get to see the cars for a small fraction of a lap...anyone ever been to a road course?
I could probably do Vegas sometime... :-)

Being from NC makes me partial to NC as a NASCAR favorite. But I have talked with a coworker about this who just so happens to be a avid NASCAR fan. He has told me that he really loves the Phoenix race. Even if it means he has to travel there from Bakersfield, he will still go because it is that great of a race track.

The last time I tried to watch a race the announcers were talking about something called the “Lucky Dog” and really hamming it up with phony southern accents; it was irritating beyond belief as far as I’m concerned.

I grew up in the Winston-Salem area and used to go to Bowman Gray race track as a kid. I think I stopped watching NASCAR around the same time I realized that the TV show, Knight Rider, was dumb.

The "Lucky Dog" is the first car that is 1 lap down when a yellow "caution flag" comes out.

He/she is lucky because they get to drive aroud past the leaders and get their lap back under caution...so when the race restarts, they are back on the lead lap, although at the very rear of the pack of course. Gives them a chance to get back into the race.

I was more offended by the phony southern accents and the fact that the post race fisticuffs and trash talking in NASCAR are staged and scripted.

Anyway, we're off topic but thanks for explaining Lucky Dog to me!

You have a point about the megatracks not being able to sell out but reports from several sports are saying the same thing (even MLB and NFL attendance has declined).

The folks in NH manage to nearly sell out the track at Loudon (of course it is the only NASCAR track in New England). Additionally I guess it depends on the source because at least one (http://www.jayski.com/pages/tracks-seating.htm) doesn't cite any drastic reductions.

I think the main reason for that is the ticket prices. I know die hard fans of some MLB teams and they go whenever they can. But the majority of us who have a life don't want to shell out that much money to watch it all the time. I would rather sit back with my HDTV and my beer at home.

I say bullshit about the "no drastic reductions". All you have to do is take a look in the stands.

Listen, I'm a 20 ad retiree. I've said/say more than my share of cuss words. Not easily offended.
But dang, if you're going cuss, have it mean something other than looking like a fool just trying to piss the mods off. And if you want to get kicked off, have it for something better than just being a foul mouthed fool.

Ummmm....it did have a purpose. The Mods apparently added a filter to censor posts and RJ was testing to see which words were auto filtered out.... He then came up with creative ways to circumvent their filters...

...son of a bitch. They really went THAT far with this board, huh? What, is this place run by nuns now?

Actually "Tits" is allowed above and by everyone,
but when I used it, they deemed it
Graphic Sexual Language.

In fact I am under an infraction as I type this,
just for posting the link to the "Tits" thread
in the Entitlement thread, because it's
Graphic Sexual Language when I use it.

Tak got banned. I guess he'll have to go back to work on that kitchen project.

LOL. How many does this make? 3 in the last 6 months? I think he and R.Chicken are having a competition to see who can get banned the most often. By my count RC is in the lead, both in number of bans and shortest time between.

I'm wondering if the "fan club" will start moaning about this. Last time there where two or three people posting epic ballads about civil rights violations.
