    I thought about it, however, being Officers are Gentlemen I decided to play nice guy and told him to take it off.

    The pictures were not taken during my encounter with him, these pictures are posted of his facebook page and are from a latter date/game.

    Pretending to be xxxxx in Airsoft is hardly worth getting worked up about. It is the for many, the same sort of thinking as re-enactment.

    That is true to a point. Past wars are reinacted, but when you have current military being reinacted, is it really reinacting or posing. Obviously a 20 year person in uniform that is from over 40 years ago did not a participant in that conflict from over 40 years ago.

    My view, he is not on this forum, what ever the airsoft community thinks, that is their business. If he wants to be thought of as douche bag by the military community and even worse by the Special Forces community, that is his choice. Until he adjusts his ways, I will refer to him as Capt Douchebag a member of the Slimy Farts

    Hes facebook account clearly states that he is airsofter - so where is the problem? He can wear whatever he wants as long he does it for airsoft only, without actually telling people that he is an actual soldier. So chill out people. He didnt do anything wrong.

    I agree. As long as he's not trying to say he's a former service member with said credentials then it's OK. Let him live his fanboy fantasy in peace and keep wishing he had what it took to actually earn what he's wearing.

    Sorry buddy, that's not an excuse. I'm 17 and I know not to wear **** like that because I know it's disrespectful to those who have earned it. read through this thread: http://www.militaryphotos.net/forums...?117718-Posing

    Look at another pic from his Airsoft album.

    I get your point. But, what is his intent? To portray himself to others as such or something he isn't? If not then there is no harm. Find something where he's trying to pass off as a legitimate service member with those credentials and I'll agree. Looking at that picture....he's wearing patches that are obviously not authorized for wear by regular service members. To me, it seems he's just taking a piss. Doesn't seem he's trying to "steel valor."

    I guess you're right, but he's still a fraking disrespectful idiot. According to him though, he's joining the army. Here's to hoping his buddies will see these photos.

    Imitation is the best form of flattery. I hope he does go in....if he's anywhere a descent person to begin with he'll soon realize what an ass he was making himself out to be.

    How the **** is airsoft disrespectful to actual soldiers? He didn't earn the patches? Well - most of airsoftlers didn't. So what? They dont actually say that they are some omfg delta, they just play such role at their meeting etc., where everybody knows that it isnt true. They dont make people believe that they are someone else.

    If you want to wear and promote wearing patches and rank insignia, then you are on the wrong forum. Go back to a dedicated poser airsoft website.

    If you want to have ranks in your little airsoft club...fine, but don't freakin pull out a ranger scroll or a long tab...you can create tab morale patches for your own stuff. On this forum we don't like posers...this guy was posing, end of story.
