Code word for no Christian symbols is my guess.....
But fecalphelia is okay . . .
Tattoos out......tutus in! What in the hell is my military turning into?
I guess a “Homos Suck “ tattoo would have to go.
Nothing dissing the holy prophet of islam, I bet...
Oh. Mandatory beards?
Under this administration, I would expect a ban on the American flag to be next.
This summer, I wrapped up three years of civilian service working around Army personnel. I’m over fifty, so maybe I’m more conservative than most folks. The bulk of Army folks I’ve come to know have absorbed the tattoo business and gone to ‘turbo’. Some folks I’ve come across have forty to fifty tattoos....of various shapes and sizes, with some meanings related to war, friendship, those who passed on, political feelings, and their favorite rock band.
Up until this point, the Army leadership has tried to just avoid looking at it, and trying to say it’s the total soldier that matters. Some folks and their gang tattoos, their extreme view tattoos, and profanity wording...are making this all a general problem.
I agree, it’s opening up a can of worms, and going to be heavily discussed by the younger generation soldiers versus the older NCOs....to the ninth degree. Most of us would just say we want a guy who is disciplined and able to stand up in combat...but these little factors often matter when the fight is finished.
On another subject....if you haven’t been to a Army Commissary on Saturday in July in the past five years....and viewed the various tattoos of Army wives....you are missing a ‘thrill’. On this topic, Army leadership can’t say or do much...except post some old warrior NCO at the frontdoor and limit entry if clothing or lusty tattoo situations are too challenging for the public.
No way they can ban the Gadsden flag, nor the Gonzalez flag (Come and Take it), nor the dissected serpent (Unite or Die)...all of these are very patriotic. I wonder if that means no more Stars and Bars, though. It seems like the forces of PC are doing their best to make the rebel flag verboten.
“Death before dishonor” is obviously out.
