Question to me today.

A little old lady came over to me at the hotel where we're having our JAG legal conference and looked at my US ARMY tape on my jacket. "Oh, you're soldiers?" she asked. "Yes ma'am," I said. "I didn't recognize that uniform. You look like aliens," she told me.

That pattern is kinda weird looking. I wouldn't have thought alien. More like "urban couch warfare." ;)

The ACU pattern is still gay.

Maybe she meant that you look like something from Aliens, you know, the movie with the Colonial Marines?

Of course, now that I'm on a campus with a ROTC contingent, it still surprises me how they look so different from the ROTC guys I knew 10 years ago. And it's not just the uniform, it's like their attitude is different as well. It's like it's hard to joke around in the ACUs.

(and before you start, yes, it's possible, I've seen videos of them on Youtube)

Given this was a little old lady, I really doubt she meant Aliens.

I remember one of the Marines who had done two or three tours in Viet Nam and with two Purple Heart ribbons with a total of 6 stars tell me on a break that when he was home some old lady asked him if they were using real bullets over there or were they rubber :/
