Thank you Hot Topic’s for taking the regards of Military Members and Veterans thoughts in regards.  We Appropriate that very much. 

 

This one has us all ranting, this was brought to our attention by our Marine Friend at Terminallance.com  Hot Tropic Clothing stores at the malls are starting to sell this US Marine Imitation uniform in their stores. Making US Military uniforms as a Trend to wear for those who are not in the military or ever have been.  It’s disgraceful to all of us in the US Military who ever earned the right to wear and the proper wear of the US Military Uniforms.

      Thank you Hot Topics. we appropriate you addressing our concerns. There is a big issue out there right now with Stolen Valor, people imitating that they are Veterans or acting with awards they have never received. Veterans and service personal honor their uniform, Marines themselves have a lot of regulations when and where they can wear their Dress Uniforms, They can’t wear them in Bars, or on flights or even just outside of their bases unless going to and from the base to home, depending on their garrison or base commanding officer. So it really upsets and angers Marines when someone wears their or similar to their dress Jacket, as a fashion statement. I am glad you can see our point on this.

      Thank you for promptly responding to this issue.
