I'm pretty sure my taxes pay for them, so they are technically my soldiers, thank you very much, and I'll...Wait, where am I going with this?

Where are you going? Presumably out to buy lipstick.

And the soldiers reply:

Just leave the lipstick where it doesn't show. 

Problem solved.

And, thank you, ladies.

Piss off, it's a G.D. badge of honor!

They want you to act professional, but don't treat or pay you as such..

...and they wonder why they can't get enough recruits.

Organizers also want to avoid any appearance of sexual misconduct at a time when the #MeToo movement has heightened awareness.

"People can take it the wrong way," Counihan said. "Somebody could run up and grab an individual and it could be considered sexual harassment if it's done improperly."


And there we have the real reason...

While in the US Army I fell in love with my female sgt (shift supervisor) and we were dating and co-habituating together. Our SSGT who we were friendly with made sure we knew what we were doing was not so legal and winked a blind eye because we did make a good couple.

Good luck, no fun Army boss.  I doubt you'll stop this tradition though, short of putting an MP out there to tackle the ladies who run out to kiss the troops.

I would like to apply for the job of tackling the ladies.

Army's afraid the dudes will start kissing the troopers.  Then the ghey will spread and no one will respect the 25th Air Assault Central Accounting Company (Fightin' Fussbudgets) again.

I have a feeling someone paid this person to say this so, knowing the American public, they will try to kiss them more.

I don't see the problem, it's only one little kiss.

They just need a 'kiss interceptor', a huge soldier that intercepts kissers and turns them around.

If she's not enlisted, I believe the only patriotically American response for a woman in Savannah is to slather on Whore Red #5, lay a big one on every soldier in town and then - to use the technical term - tell him to go fark himself with a rusty chainsaw sideways.

I have been to Savannah for St Patty's Day twice and I honestly cannot remember seeing any soldiers marching in a parade at all. Of course, I was full of beer so I may not have noticed.  It is a hell of a party - I highly suggest trying to make your way there one day.

It would be interesting to see men run up to the lady soldiers and kiss them.

No stopping it now - it seems that the "lipstick is already out of the tube" on this one.

They're saying they'll have adjutants from the parade committee doing it.  I know adjutants.  They're not going to enforce this rule. They don't give a shiat.

Yes, please come to St. Paddy's day in Savannah,  it's a great time.  But don't piss in our streets and don't be a dick, please. AND DO NOT CLIMB OVER THE RAILING ON RIVER STREET.  IF YOU FALL IN THE SAVANNAH RIVER, YOU WILL MOST LIKELY DIE.

Sorry, I was unclear.  Tell the PR twat to go fark himself, not the soldier.  I forgot to include a new noun to reset the pronoun.  My bad.

We had different problems in the Navy.

The Marines kept trying to kiss us.

No thanks.  I don't need a weapon of war.

The 3rd ID shouldn't be allowed to walk in the St Patties Day parade it was a 1st Batt tradition  but after 9/11  those nerds started pushing their way in and are now trying to ruin it with their dumb leg ways.

Mech nerds

No, here's the *REAL* reason. You never know where that lipstick has been.

I know this involves a lot of thinking, and we are talking about the Army, but how about the soldiers carry a hankie or a wet wipe in their pocket as they march in the parade and if they get kissed they can immediately wipe off the lipstick.
 
2018-03-08 03:29:05 PM  
Just tell the souldiers to not consent to a kiss while on duty or in uniform.  Any kissing that happens is rape and prosecute the offender for rape because they didnt get consent.  Or if they did, prosecute the soldier for disobeying orders.

AP article with helpful picture of Coast Guardsman getting kissed.

But I thought the military was ok with transgender soldiers now.
 
2018-03-08 03:38:50 PM  
The lady will just need to adapt a new tactic: go by pair, one to kiss and distract the adjutant while the other slip by to kiss a marching soldier, adjutants need love too after all.

If I were a veteran in the crowd, I would be passing out lipstick. Stupid rules are stupid, and the Army will back down with enough public pressure.
