“He can’t decide if he’s enlisted or officer”
Pardon my ignorance but would it be possible for you to point out the discrepancies that are evident on the pictures?
I see stripes in the beach picture, and the article stated “wearing the uniform of a lieutenant colonel” in the second picture. I’m Army, so I don’t know Marine uniforms, though... (and I could be completely delirious, also...
In the top photo he is wearing enlisted dress blue uniform with the rank of Master Gunnery Sergeant, worn on the sleeve. The enlisted dress blue uniform has red piping on it.
The bottom photo he is wearing officer dress blue uniform with the rank of Lieutenant Colonel (per the article), worn on the shoulder epaulets. The officer dress blue uniform does not have red piping.
on first look, he is a Master Gunnery Sargent in the top one, and a Capt or a Col (cant make it out on the laptop) in the bottom one
you cant be enlisted AND officer
