JAFW Marine

Received this pix from one of my Veteran newsletters - Just Another F'ing Wannabe (JAFW) Marine

GySgt Ableman was keen enough to spot this asshole walking through the Reno Airport in full dress blues with gloves and cover on. He stopped him near the baggage claim and running into a Drill Instructor wasn't something this guy had anticipated.

If any of you know Gunny Ableman, this kid was lucky to leave with all his teeth intact. From the get go, it was obvious this kid was not a Marine.

He claimed to be a PFC (wearing LCpl chevrons) and could not explain what a PFC chevron looked like and then couldn't explain the NCO stripe on his trousers. He had a collar emblem in the middle of his barracks cover and his belt was sticking out.

No ribbons or badges, his trousers were way too long, not to mention he had on Sketcher boots instead of dress shoes and a civilian belt. We found this out after we demanded that he take off the blouse and cover.

Turns out he bought the uniform from a surplus store and his Dad is a retired Navy Chief. Reno is a super-pro military area and this guy was soaking in the atta-boys.

Reminds me of the episode of the Andy Griffith Show when Gomer Pyle's squadmates suckered him into dressing in GYSGT Carter's Blues. Can't believe this boy thought he'd pull it off. With those kind of cahonis, maybe GYSGT Ableman should've recruited him after he got out of jail. At least that way, he'd learn how to square a uniform away correctly. At least the stupid moron had the decency to not display any medals or ribbons on the uniform. I do believe that's a Federal Offense punishable by prison time. I notice he at least got the high and tight right. What happened to him after this?

From what I understand, the Gunny just chewed his ass and let the kid go. They didn't call the cops on him. Don't know what happened to the kid, maybe he manned up and joined the Corps, instead of just being a wannabe.
