    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.

    I see you have your user title for a reason.

    I am going to close this thread. For this forum we have our rules on posing, see the sticky. Out side of this forum, well, Our ban hammer can only reach so far.

    I am sure if this person was making a big deal about being a real deal and capitalizing it, the headhunters in the SF community would track him down.

    Now if Capt Douchebag was a member on this forum and posted photos of himself, he would have a title under his name, "Banned Member."
