Leave it on the Battlefield

One can’t help but be a little extra patriotic when Labor Day comes around. We are all thankful for a strong military that defends our country every day. I am even proud to say that I have a few members in my family that served in the military. What I am about to write I would say to my own family members…

LOSE THE MILITARY CAMOUFLAGE

This trend baffles me. Even if you are an active service member, there is no need or reason to wear the Camo when you are not working/required to do so. I know when we see little boys dressed up in a GI Joe–like fashion we find it tender, but as an adult man you need to just be a grown-up Joe. When I see furniture or clothing with too many flowers, I have been known for saying, “Leave the garden outside.” In this case, leave the camo on the battlefield. Wearing military camouflage is not cute or sexy. When you are walking by an article of clothing that is Camo and considering making a purchase, keep walking!  And if you currently own any camouflage clothing, take it to the Good Will immediately. Along the same line whether you are an active member of the military or just trying to be trendy, don’t wear dog tags, those big bulky boots, or wannabe sniper hats of any kind. Like I mentioned earlier it just isn’t cute no matter how you dress it up. Unless it’s Halloween or you are hiding from “Charlie” you need to just say no.

Quick Aside: Although men wearing camo for fun makes me sick, Pea Coats are completely acceptable.  In fact a good quality Pea Coat is one of the sexiest things a man can wear.  Check out Kaufman’s Army & Navy in midtown Manhattan for the best authentic Pea Coats.  The shop is kind of messy and the owner is beyond excentric but you’ll wear the coat for the rest of your life and never look back.

    What about camo shorts? I have 3 pairs of camo shorts in my artillery and 1 solid. Camo just seems to go with everything. Now the camo shirt, only when I’m hunting…..for chicks at walmart.

    • Hi Sgt. Bilko, Thank you for commenting. I have to disagree with you. Camo really does not go with everything. Get rid of the camo, it will only hurt you when you are on the prowl. I’m confident you have a better array of options in your artillery.

    How the hell did those Red Keds in the picture escape closer scrutiny in this blog?
