With a detail minded Commander in Chief like ours, is it any wonder?

The American military is always precise and detail oriented

Any guesses on what’s wrong with this picture? (Besides the fact that it looks like the guy has BBs up his nose?)Our pal FlyBoy311 sez: For those who are not familiar with an Air Force uniform… the shoulder board on his right shoulder is backwards. He appeared like this on national television live talking about the effects of hurricane Ivan on the Air Force bases in the gulf area.  Needless to say im sure he got a good chewing out from his commander after this TV appearance.  Such a great representative of the military that I joined…..

    Can’t our vast military-industrial complex make a shoulder board that can only go on one way?  Come on, I want to see my tax dollars at work!


    What did you expect from an Air Force guy.

    GO ARMY!

    hehe uh oh.. it’s on!

    His face looks like it got tangled with a wood chipper.


    I mean seriously flyboy311, his obvious lack of attention to detail concerning his appearance is a serious problem that reflects poorly on his organisation. You can’t deny that fact.

    It takes 1 minute of your time to look in the mirror.  I’m sure they had one available right before he showed up on camera.

    Granted, judging all Air Force personnel by this individuals lack of personal judgement, would be unfair. I’m sure there are a few reputable Air Force officers out there….somewhere.

    I’d rather walk tall and be proud of myself by being a ‘bullet shield’ than staying in the rear like a ************.

    Have a nice day.

    Maybe its just an officer thing… officers dont go thgrough basic training like the rest of us and get attention to detail drilled into their heads.. I am enlisted..  but you can “walk tall” as a bullet shield all you want..  you will never be able to do your job without what my office does!  SO THERE!


    you will never be able to do your job without what my office does!

    That’s cute.

    Honestly though, I’m just jealous, I remember having to sleep for days out in the woods while the Air Force guys got set up in the Hotel at the nearest town because crew members and pilots needed…’their rest’.

    I was lucky to get an hour of sleep a night.

    You’d never see that kind of slip-shod half-assed detail in my army.

    Which army? The motherfucking KISS Army.  Awwwww, hell ya!

    Yes, KISS the band that made kubuki makeup, cock-rock, and gayness cool for an entire generation. Truly, a band for everyone!

    (Because let’s face it: Paul Stanley makes Rob Halford look like Ron Jeremy)

    This guy is (was?) a Major, Fourth officer rank that it takes little brains to get to it you can kiss butt enough. FlyBoy also hit it on the head…he’s an officer, they aren’t held to the same standards generally speaking. SO many stories about how they don’t even try and never get busted.
