DNC supports vets...but from which country? (Show Canadian troops on DNC site)
Michelle Malkin ^ | 10-07-06 | Michelle Malkin

Posted on 10/07/2006 6:21:27 PM PDT by jrooney

A military guy e-mails a weekend website blooper:

Thought you might be interested in posting this. The DNC website has a page called Veterans and Military Families where they purpo[r]t to care about the welfare of US troops. Unfortunately they couldn't even find a picture of a US soldier to post on the page. The picture in the Get Involved frame is not a US Army uniform. The soldiers in the background are not in a US uniform either.

My military correspondent says the uniform in the DNC photo...is Canadian. Is he right?

I support Canadian troops too but that's a pretty telling mistake on their part.

Shows you how idiotic these people are that want to lead our nation. They support our troops but could not identify them if the saw one in uniform. Absolutely pathetic. Kinda like,........where is Waldo!

The crown on the epaulette of the soldier in the foreground kind of gives it away. That's definitely not an American uniform.

I'll leave it to others more expert than I to find other details.

Looks like Canadian soldiers near the Cenotaph in front of old City Hall in downtown Toronto.
The green & white logo on the building between the two in the foreground: TD (Toronto Dominion) Bank almost for certain.

Wonder if someone hacked the site?
My browser brings up some garbage errors in the code.
Isn't this a howler, either way!

Definitely Canadians. The cap badge is kinda fuzzy, but it's a Canadian badge, just don't know which one. The Commonwealth countries have a million of 'em.

First guy has the Special Service ribbon, 12 year service ribbon, and the General Campaign ribbon. Next guy has jump wings and two bars on his service ribbon, and what looks like the Order of Quebec. Can't decipher the others.

They're all wearing poppies because it's Remembrance Day.

This was on Malkin's site, but I was waiting for a final decision from the experts.

It wouldn't surprise me if it was wrong.

I looked at the page. It's ok, except my browser showed an overlay in the script code. Might just be because I turn off a lot of popup stuff. Anyway, glad someone sent it to Drudge.

Thanks for pointing out the insignia on the epaulettes. Believe the first man is a big dog - the crossed swords under the crown is an LtGl's rank insignia, IIRC.

There's a maple leaf there too . . . dead giveaway I would say. As is the word "Canada" on the shoulder flash of the second man.
