http://communities.washingtontimes....y-chief-petty-officer-initiation-ill-advised/ I'm in no way conservative but I have been in or worked for the Military since leaving college in 1998. If you conservatives would like to make a point use articles like this no some silly Barry made the SEALs take off a silly yellow patch hur dur. Things like this are what make the military and speak to the state of the military but alas it's not a tea bagger symbol so it's not worthy. What this show is how shallow most tea baggers are. If you want to be part of a solution help the military keep it's traditions and adapt to new ways at the same time. This piece written as an OpEd about a year ago.
