NOT slamming the US Military... Rather, a reminder to check yourself over, before going on National TV   ::)

Remember our beloved former PM with the Kevlar Helmet on backwards?

Can't help you with the pic, but it must have been archived somewhere, it made national news.

That a reporter was quick enough to catch him? That no one thought to tell him it was on backwards?

Here in CJTF76 HQ I was having a laugh with some US Army guys about that Air Force LCol: they thought it was hilarious. However, as a rule the US Army is far stricter on dress and deportment than we are: Soldiers are generally very sharply turnbed out, but the conduct rules here at Bagram are MUCH stricter than anything I have seen on a Canadian deployment. I am not sure Canadians would tolerate them. Cheers.
