Fun Fact: He's in the Air Force. You can tell due to the tiger stripe camouflage on his BDU. Army wears a grayish digital camouflage, Marines wear a desert digital camouflage, and the Navy wears a blue digital camouflage. THE MORE YOU KNOW
@MAN THE HARPOON, so your saying the Air Force are hipsters because that don't use the digital camo?
@Aaappetheshaftr, No, I'm saying he's in the Air Force. Besides, it's sorta a digital tiger stripe.
@MAN THE HARPOON, When the next uniform reforms come up, I want us seamen to wear black jumpsuits.. Something a little close to Star Wars or other sci-fi games/shows...
@MAN THE HARPOON, another fun fact!! In the Air Force we call them ABU now!!
@Dyrewulff , PERFECT CAMOUFLAGE. ALL BLACK
@MAN THE HARPOON, SURE. LETS HAVE OUR SAILORS DRESS UP IN DIGITAL BLUE NWUS SO THEY CAN BE CAMOUFLAGED WITH THE SEA. THATLL BE GREAT FOR OVERBOARD RESCUES. I don't care if it conceals oil stains or whatnot, I find it stupid.
@Dyrewulff , I agree. Also, why do they need camouflage? They are on giant steel ships.
@MAN THE HARPOON, the marines have woodlands too. But they're much darker than the army ACUs so the difference is easy to spot
@MAN THE HARPOON, So you're saying he has the need? The need for Speed?
@MAN THE HARPOON, Top Gun quote. I was going to suggest highway to the danger zone, but it would be too on the nose.
@MAN THE HARPOON, nah bro its an abu.
@Dyrewulff , actually it doesn't match the water it matches the ship at night
@Dyrewulff , Everyone in the Navy knows. But noooooo one's gonna tell Admiral Greenert that we truly think. Also, whoever started that rumor that NWUs turn orange when wet can stop. SERIOUSLY, PLEASE STOP.
@MAN THE HARPOON, even better. They aren't bdu's anymore in the air force they are abu's
@MANTHEHARPOON, marpat is either desert or woodland THE MORE YOU KNOW
@Dyrewulff , ever heard of thermal imaging?
@MANTHEHARPOON, not all the time
I honestly don't think this is 'disrespectful' in any way. People who think it is are just trying to look all honorable and patriotic by being like 'Dud how dur u disrespect our trups who fight for our freedamZ!'
@ThatCoffeeBean, Dafuq is a freedamZ?
@ThatCoffeeBean, lol. I'm an airman. Pic didn't offend me one bit. Actually the dude's hair on the drawing is in violation of AFI 36-2903, but whatev.
@ThatCoffeeBean, As a US servicemember, I can honestly say that people who start this bullcrap about 'how dare you whatever our soldiers' rustle my jimmies. No ones cares, least of all us. So stop starting sh!t and let us do our JOBS.
@The Linguist, Exactly. You can respect the military and what you guys do without proclaiming it to the world.
@ThatCoffeeBean, Thank you, my new favorite person! Everyone be like Bean!
@The Linguist, Lol, thanks, but honestly, I'm not the best role model :P
This is why you get a private jet. Duh.
@The Barney Stinson, but actually, all respect to the men and women in arms and their loved ones who have to wait so many months/years to see them, if they get to see them again at all. Thank you to all service men and women for your and your loved ones' sacrifices. And I am not sorry for this long post.
@The Barney Stinson, thank you for not using the generic comment "fighting for our freedom". I feel like that phrase is saying fighting a war every year and sending people to die is necessary for freedom. Plus, I think the only threat to the country's freedom is the government itself
People who find this offensive don't belong on the internet.
I remember when this was posted here a few months ago as a tumblr post and I said something along the lines of "people who make fun of the troops make me sick". It ended up being the most downvoted comment I've ever had on here
@Sexy Homunculus, maybe because this picture does not, in any way, shape, or form, as a reasonable person being of sound mind could interpret it, make fun of our troops. It's making fun of airports.
The top part for sure, although in the pic from a few months ago someone added a caption that I thought was inappropriate.
@Sexy Homunculus, What was the caption?
@MAN THE HARPOON, I can't remember exactly, but I took it the wrong way at first and realized later it was only meant to be silly
@CaptainSwordsman, I agree that in this case it is indeed making fun of airports and that's how it's meant to be taken. However, I can see how it would be interpreted otherwise. For example, it is taking an incredible moment in time for these two people who are finally reunited, and turning it into an airport joke. It's not making fun of our troops, but it is de-sanctifying a precious time for these two people. So, all-in-all it is a harmless joke and you're correct that it is indeed making fun of airports, but this is, in my opinion, how most people, who you're claiming to be unreasonable, could see it.
@Just a Dislike Troll, well I never said it was unreasonable to see it that way, I only said it was unreasonable to think that it's directly making fun of our troops which you yourself said it's not. It's perfectly fine to see it as downplaying a special moment in their lives, which is somewhat insensitive, as well as a good reason to dislike it. I just wanted to make clear to Sexy Homunculus that this single picture, as it is, does not directly insult, disrespect, or make fun of the soldier in the United States Army.
@CaptainSwordsman, I see. Your comment simply seemed rather close-minded and one-sided, so I thought I might try showing you that others could have their own opinions, and they could be interpreted in different ways, shapes, and forms with reason.
@Just a Dislike Troll, I understand that my comment was poorly worded for the message I was attempting to convey, and I thank you for showing me how.
Batman ain't got sh!t on our troops!
@Don Belmont, HUA!
@Don Belmont, batman beats everybody
I waited 458 days for this jep. Is that what we called them?
@A Zesty Newt, we've actually dropped jep and retoast and just gone back to repost it seems.
@CaptainSwordsman, oh okay. Somehow I missed this Haha.
How did they suddenly turn into a lesbian couple?
@SpreadableButter, I think it's a guy with long hair. I take it you don't see those kind of guys often?
@Renji Abarai, no, it's just that the guy in the pic doesn't have long hair. And servicemen don't have long hair either.
@SpreadableButter, your hair grows pretty long if you stand and wait for 458 days.
As a guy waiting to get shipped out to the navy, I'm glad he came home... Thank you
@dannny32, good luck~! I hope you do well and return. :"3
I don't like jokes about our hard working servicemen:(
@Underdoge, it's not really as bad as it could've been. Not as bad as the internet could've made it.
@Enterpegasus, that's true I agree
@Underdoge, I don't mind this one so much. Could have been worse.
@Underdoge, it's actually kind of clever and harmles.
@Underdoge, it really wasnt even about them.... Just about how long it takes to get luggage
@Underdoge, It's not offensive, just situational.
@Underdoge, remember the one of the girl hugging her soldier daughter and people photoshopped the soldier into a snickers bar
@AlaskanBu11Worm, That one still wasn't as bad as the one with the 8 year old receiving his dads flag and someone put text on it that said "I'm sorry your dad was 360 quickscoped".
@Underdoge, They don't deserve any special commemoration. They are pawns. That is all.
It's beautiful, *sheds single tear*
i always wanted to join the marines or the army... but since i am a transsexual woman.. they keep regecting me... well one day right?
@mizuty, I feel bad for you but in that situation it's best to understand the other guy. Maybe you could join the police force or something we have a few gay police where I'm from.
@MidasRaptor91, well is more about fighting for this country.. n going to school for free... i understand about other guy.. but what gets me mad is that.. they think i have a mental illness .. and thats the reason i cant join... i cry sometime.. i prayed to God to make me "Normal" but im still this.. dnt get me wrong im happy for finally being me.. but sometomes i hate going through this pain... but all i have is smile to give :) lol
@mizuty, I don't understand how they won't let you join because they think being transsexual is a mental illness maybe they just don't want to get dogged on for doing it for religious purposes.
@MidasRaptor91, or fear i might get in trouble with the other guys.. idk
@mizuty, I am transgender myself and I understand where your coming from, one day if I decide to join the navy/army or the marines then I'll likely be rejected, luckily, I haven't had anything done yet so there's always a chance. Just keep trying, don't give up your dreams. It's not worth it to give up.
@Renji Abarai, im keep trying every year... :)
I'm in the army and find this delightful
What's funny about this? Don't disrespect the men and women that protect your freedom.
@NeoMaximus, what's funny is that this doesn't disrepectvour troopsnin any way, and you're just plain stupid if you think it does.
@NeoMaximus, it's people like you that cause trolls to make fun of them, if you weren't so butthurt as to jump on the "muh troops defending muh american freedom!" People wouldn't disrespect them, just think about that
Once a Staff Sargent came into my first hour class, which was band, to recruit for the Marines. Afterwards, he was taking questions, in which I asked him if he had ever been called Sargent Pepper. He didn't understand the reference T_T
Still trying to figure out how this is funny...
Saddest. Update. Ever. (Minus the bottom of this one)
Three sad pics in a row? Half Life 3 confirmed.. Nah, just kidding.

I know the feel
