Not Stolen Valor, but cringe: Special Forces Colonel dances on TikTok

A US Army Lieutenant Colonel-turned pastor is not breaking any obvious policy by dancing in bizarre TikTok videos while in uniform- but he certainly isn’t winning hearts and minds, either.

Lieutenant Colonel Shawn Brower, a [presumably] retired US Army Green Beret, did the bulk of his service in the 1990s, according to his LinkedIn bio.

After his service, he went to seminary and became a religious leader. 

“Shawn loves other cultures and speaks several languages, including Spanish.  Upon completing over 20 years in the US Army he went to seminary and has earned a Masters of Theological Studies,” the bio reads.

From 2015 onward, he has been a pastor at the Everlasting Life Church which operates out of a VFW in Fort Lauderdale, Florida.

Brower has some bizarre videos on TikTok, including one of him dancing in his dress uniform to the strumming of Spanish music.

While the use of his dress uniform since his apparent retirement doesn’t seem to violate any military regulations, it certainly comes across as odd.
