Boobs on parade

Please engage brain before speaking or writing:

Two Fairchild Air Force Base, Wash., airmen who donned their uniforms for a photo session in support of Breastfeeding Awareness Month violated a policy that forbids military members from using the uniform to further a cause, promote a product or imply an endorsement, said Capt. Keith Kosik, spokesman for the Washington National Guard.

“Don’t look for Army Brigadier General Neil Tolley on the two-star list anytime soon.

General Tolley, the former commander of U.S. Special Forces in South Korea, has been replaced in that post, just weeks after he publicly stated that American and ROK SOF forces have periodically entered North Korea on spy missions. “

It’s sad that the left went into a tizzy over both stories. There will always be idiots in uniform. Some people think that they’re civilians in uniform or that having rank gives them the right to be an ass.

The problem is that many (yes even those in uniform) don’t know about the military and the media doesn’t bother to find out. Pesky facts get in the way of a good narrative after all. I mean, National Guard members have plenty of time to do things like their jobs or parenting. And American’s and ROK soldiers dropping in on North Korea would hand the Norks a propaganda coup.

In the past these stories would have had legs. With milblogs and the internet? They’re DOA.
