This clown was wearing a EOD Medal and Ranger Tab on a 101st Airborne Patch. He was wearing US Army Name Tape and wearing rank of Master Sergeant which rank you can tell he never earned being so young looking to be a Master Sergeant E-8. There are rules and laws in place about people wearing uniforms of Police Officers and Fire Fighters, and Medical Personal. Why aren’t their rules and laws in the states and by federal courts stating its a crime to wear the a U. S. Military Uniform when your not in the service or wearing items you never earned. I remember when I was kid buying a set of BDUs from a Military Surplus shop outside of a Army Base. All patches were cut from the uniform. Now with the ACU’s and everything being so easy on and easy off with Velcro people can just by a patch and put it on easily to be a faker and get the attention from it.
