Angry malingering POS rant update

Im at the dog park, and two guys come in wearing wounder warrior and a glock shirt....so im like cool i can talk to my fellow service members. I reconginze one of them as a junior Marine in my platoon over 4yrs ago...the thing is...he never deployed or did anything as far as i know...after his boot camp and SOI...he came to the unit "broken" . Barely went on any tranung ops, if he did he was the radio watch with the hq platoon, because he was on light duty....

Im pissed off that hes wearing a wounded warrior shirt and probaly has people come up to him and thank him for his service...even though he didnt do a dang thing... cool you completed boot camp and SOI..in my opinion you dont rate to wear a "wounded warrior" shirt or even be a part of them...thats the kinda of crap that pisses me off...when i came back from afgab and went to soi as a duty station, wounded warrior would come over and give some.of the Marines a moto speech, listening to half of them pissed me off even more...

I guess being combat wounded is a whole different thing.from pulling you hamstring in the US and being a baby back *****


OP if you wish to rant that is fine, but please do it in a more calm manner on the forum. And don`t try to defeat the word filter.

I've seen civilians wearing Wounded Warrior shirts... I thought it was a fundraising type of thing... aka, x% of shirt prices go to the foundation and wearing a shirt is more a sign that you've donated/supported the cause... as opposed to wearing the shirt = combat vet wounded in action.

I thought the wounded warrior shirts were bought and worn in support of just that , wounded warrior. U never once that a wounded vet would wear a shirt saying hey look at me I'm a wounded vet. Or am I wrong. Being deployed twice I can honestly say I'd wear the shirt to support my brothers in uniform.

Ya the wwp is a charity to raise funds for WW, no way do they signify that they are just for wounded vets. I see people all the time wearing their gear it's advertising and some of the proceeds go to helping vets.

Sound like its more of an issue with an individual, than an issue with the shirt.

I am not really a huge fan of the Wounded Warrior project when you take a look at their numbers compaired to DAV, or Special Operations Warrior Foundation, They are just a for profit company.

Yeah the Wounded Warrior T-shirt wearing isn't exactly Stolen Valor, Devil. If he's talking about killing bodies in Fallujah and patrolling the Wardak Province…well, that's another story...

ok so your not offended if some random person wears an old unit shirt??? they have not affiliation with that unit or even know what its about? someone who was not combat wounded, but gotten hurt because hes a weak b**** and broke his own leg cause he didnt drink enough milk as a kid??? they should rate the same as a combat veteran?

Yeah, I think you totally miss the point of those shirts. It's nothing like wearing a unit shirt for a unit you were never in, much less an award you didn't earn or anything like that. It's just like wearing any fundraiser T-Shirt ever. All it says is "I've contributed to this cause in some way". It has nothing to do with actually being combat wounded.

I mean, if I wear a breast cancer awareness shirt, would you get mad at me for posing as a breast cancer survivor?

Honestly I think you are making a bigger deal than it needs to be. Its not like he was spouting off to the other guy about how wounded he was or that the WWP gave him the shirt due to wounds he sustained in combat. Sometimes dealing with people in the military, we deal with Dirt Bags, its the nature of the beast. Sometimes we just have to shake our heads and walk away. Crack open a cold beer, sit down and enjoy the fact that you got to serve your country in a different way than the guys you saw at the park.

I love it when I see Wounded Warrior clothing as X percentage of sales goes to the Foundation. I'm not happy with posers, but these people are supporting, not posing.

I guess it's kind of like wearing a bands shirt that you've never seen in concert. Although you've never actually supported them, you still enjoy their content or like what they do. You want to spread the word or support them through "word of mouth"... I guess.

I knew another Marine from my RSS who ended up getting in a motorcycle accident and got sent to Wounded Warrior Battalion West because he completely lost use of one of his arms before getting medically separated.

If your using the word " probably ", that means you don't know if he bought the shirt or not. Maybe he bought the shirt to honor and help the fallen, just a thought.

Bolded the key part there. Probably, meaning you don't know.


You have a personal problem with the guy. Got it. Sounds like he's probably a ****bag. That doesn't make him a poser though, at least in this case. If he bought the shirt, he contributed. Period. Sorry.

We all signed a blank check to the govt. Not everyone is going to run 6 minute miles, 20 pull ups and 200 sit ups. It seems you are angry over something you shouldnt be.

I didnt serve over seas or in combat, I was one of the lucky ones who didnt get blown the F up, I did lose friends and think of all of them and others I dont know and thank them. Dont hold a grudge and go live your life.

Well said... I actually saw a guy wearing a WW shirt and cut out digi cammies next to a guy walking with a stick who also wears some unit shirt and I just didn't say anything. We all did our time and I'm just glad to be alive.

I make no presumption those wearing military themed wear are remotely military unless it’s some variant of a regulation correct uniform.

Just FYI Wounded Warrior Project made $143,772,582 in 2012 and only about 1/3 of that money ever went to a veteran $55,386,953 to put that into perspective for every dollar you give them only about .33 cents make it to a veteran program.

Compare it to an other organization like DAV
http://www.charitynavigator.org/inde...9#.U8_hRoBdVd8
For every dollar you spend about .93 cents make it to a veteran program.


Special Operations Warrior Foundation
http://www.charitynavigator.org/inde...4#.U8_hR4BdVd8
For every dollar spent about 84.5 cents make it to a veteran program.

just wondering but you touched on the part of wearing a units shirt... how would this go?

my brother in law was part of the 3rd ranger battalion before he got out. while he was in he bought me a sweatshirt that has a small ranger emblem on the front. i wear it sometimes and have never claimed to be in or part of the military, i just wear it to show support for the military and my brother in law.

dont want to look like a douche...

That's not right. Some truly are, especially TBI cases. Don't put a blanket over an entire group of people.

my brother in law was part of the 3rd ranger battalion before he got out. while he was in he bought me a sweatshirt that has a small ranger emblem on the front. i wear it sometimes and have never claimed to be in or part of the military, i just wear it to show support for the military and my brother in law.

dont want to look like a douche...
I personally would not wear a shirt with a Ranger tab on it unless I was a Ranger. That's just me though...

The tab doesn't make you a Ranger, just means you graduated the school. I don't really see a problem with it. Now a shirt with a scroll on it I could see some issues.

Just a personal thing for me. Unless I went through Ranger school, I just would not feel comfortable wearing the shirt.

Nor would I, I was just stating a tab doesn't make you a Ranger and why I don't see it as "bad" as wearing a shirt with a scroll on it.

Then again I don't wear any military clothing lol

The head of WW foundation makes six figures. In my opinion, they're a profit company that uses our wounded veteran as a mean to get money, which is a damn shame. I personally support local organizations and I can actually see where my donation goes.

As for your "poser" friend, I think you're making a bigger deal out of this than what it really is. I know a lot of **** bag Marines who would skate the **** out of working parties, get fat, malinger, and the moment they come out of the Corps, they become super moto and they do mud runs. Some will even guilt their fellow platoon mates into doing mud runs, or else they don't support the troops. I say let this one go, it ain't worth stressing. He's not exactly stealing valor either. He wants to wear a WW shirt so he can impress people.

Good day to you, Marine.

Semper Fi to all of you
