A veteran who was washing his car at a SpeedWash in Victorville, CA confronts a man in an Army Uniform with facial hair that is out of regulation .
The veteran approaches the man and asks him what his MOS is, he responds, “I have multiple MOS”. He continued to say he is “Special Operations”; then recants and says he was civil affairs.
When asked what his rank was when he retired he pauses for a while and then points at his dash, where there is a SFC rank sticker, and says “Seven.”
The perpetrator goes on to say that being recorded “will not stop me [from wearing the uniform].” “You can buy these [ACUs] anywhere…”
After seeing his Operation Iraqi Freedom bumper sticker, the veteran asks him when he went to Iraq. The perpetrator simply replies, “It’s none of your business.”
Anyone who served knows a retired platoon sergeant would not be going to the car wash in ACU’s. In the off chance a retired Sergeant First Class did decide to do that, he sure as hell would not let a former junior enlisted soldier call him a “Sh*t bag!”
