henryhill: I have a job that what I wear would make a great halloween costume, but I don't wear it on halloween. You know why? Because its my farking uniform!


Normally I'd agree with this. But as a guy in a wheel chair he has to integrate the chair into his costume or people get confused. "A disabled vampire? I don't get it." "No, I'm a regular vampire I just happen to be disabled." So his choices are pretty much limited to disabled vet or Stephen Hawking, and he probably didn't have a Speak-n-Spell available.

Camaraderie among armed services and all, I've always gotten a kick out of the Marines mentality. My cousin is the same way, a Marine with a rifle is the most dangerous thing on the planet, Marines are tough as nails and all of that. He's a goddamn wrench turner who has no chance of deployment.

I like to remind him that him that his "pussy Army guy" cousin who has 10 years service over him and multiple ranks would be kicking doors in while he's safe on the tarmac.

That is not something a Marine does - they have more self-control," Priotti said.

This guy has apparently known much higher quality Marines than I have met.

Cold_Sassy: AugieDoggyDaddy: Priotti told The Sun he served in the Army from 1996-98 and was paralyzed in an accident about 10 years ago that was not military-related.

Okay fellow vets, show of hands, who thinks the uniform is an apropiate holloween costume?

Also, Priotti served a whole two years in the Army, and apparently was not in the Army when paralyzed.
From the moment a person is sworn in, they will be a veteran when they leave the service. Doesn't matter how long or what they did in the service. Thirty days of thirty years.
Maybe some Army people can tell me about two year soldiers. In the Navy they are usaualy unfit for service.

I'm not a vet, but I do not think this guy (whose injuries occurred outside of military service) should be wearing a [defaced] uniform for Halloween, it is disrespecful to the men and women who ARE injured in service to the U.S., not a joke.


I'm not a cheerleader, but I do not think any women (whose violent murder occured outside of the reenactment of a campy horror movie) should be dressed up as a sexy zombie cheerleader for Halloween, it is disrespectful to the women who ARE murdered by ax wielding maniacs in service to giving 50 year old men chubs between halves of a football game, not a joke.

ransack.: hermitage_deux: The guy was dressed for halloween as a wounded soldier in a wheelchair with fake blood all over his face.
I'm glad the marine clocked him, even if he was once in the army.

it's like a cop wearing his own uniform on halloween with bullet holes in his chest and head. that's just stupid, and very disrespectful.

/ posing as a wounded, disabled vet is not cool
// where can i contribute to defense fund?

Man, I'm with you here. I do find that to be distasteful. Even for a bona fide disabled veteran.


Yes, thank God there are drunken former Marines to save us from the scourge of offensive halloween shenanigans.

sdd2000: 1derful: People think the Jarheads are stupid, but I'll tell you- it takes a good deal of smarts to be a medic or a chaplain.

Marine "Chaplin" s is not normally possible. The United States Navy Chaplain Corps normally provides chaplins for the marines.


FTDA: 1derful: People think the Jarheads are stupid, but I'll tell you- it takes a good deal of smarts to be a medic or a chaplain.

Jarheads don't have medics. They have Squid Corpsmen.

Tango_down: Yeah disrespectful but by all means he has the right as a US citizen to wear this costume and not get assaulted by people that have sworn to protect him and this country.


Honestly these guys were both veterans, not retired, and the guy in the wheelchair, while legitimately disabled, was in such a state because of an injury unrelated to his military service.

Effectively, this story should be "drunk idiot assaults man without warning out of misguided sense of patriotism." Their veteran status is about as significant to the story as mine is.

fluffy2097: I'm going to bet $100 that alcohol was involved.
