Wait a minute…

I have been laughing at this for hours now…

So, true story. The woman in this photo is Kendra Kaplan. Her husband was in Iraq for twelve months but the military has this thing called leave. Some of us may recognize the concept from old episodes of Star Trek. In this photo she is five months pregnant after conceiving her second child during her husband’s leave. That envelope in her hand is the ultrasound results. She waited for him to come home to find out if it was a girl or a boy.
There’s been several articles about it.The photo resulted in this woman receiving so much hate mail, from both internet cut-ups and the actual media, that she even took a paternity test and provided proof of her husband’s leave schedule. Her real life friends have stopped talking to her over these rumors.  
Oh, and by the way, that baby bump is a two year old by now. People are still shitting on this woman over a nasty internet meme two years later.
So in short, you’re mocking a faithful wife for something that isn’t any of our damn business anyway and has long since been disproven. 
Good job Internet.


There are times when I don’t have much faith in people but I never thought the baby wasn’t his. Not just because I know about military leave. (I know a woman that got pregnant on leave) it isn’t because I know that some deployments are shorter than nine months (Bosnia,  Kosovo anyone?) I didn’t think it wasn’t his because despite my lack of faith I find it hard to believe that any woman would be that messed up to come to a homecoming with Jody’s baby and broadcast it like that. There are real things going on in the world, can we stop fucking with a woman that didn’t do anything wrong?

June was Post Traumatic Stress (PTS) awareness month and even though it is passed we should still time to look at another way…

My life

Anyone that diminishes your pain or service can fuck off. I got your back.

And you can’t even display the flag correctly.

Damn straight

June was Post Traumatic Stress (PTS) awareness month and even though it is passed we should still time to look at another way that people contribute to PTS in veterans. Diminishing the service of another is something that military members and veterans are unfortunately as guilty of as civilians are. It is bad enough when a person that doesn’t understand…

In 2010, he covered a live grenade with his body, saving a fellow Marine’s life. I photograph celebrities all the time but it’s these people that catch my attention and get my respect.

"These people" what do you mean "these people?" He is a celebrity. Find me a Marine that doesn’t know who he is but can name all the Kardashian sisters and I will show you someone that is not a Marine.

Turns out, the United States Marine Corps has an *~amazing~* Flickr page. (Seriously, check it out.) We stumbled across it recently, and we’ve been obsessed ever since.

In addition to stunning photography, they do a great job representing women as powerfully as men, and offer a no-nonsense look at the life of Marines. There are also some really cool shots of the technology they use, and some charming pics of things like doggies and teary homecomings.

Take your pick. When someone posts a wrong flag I tell them to unfuck their flag and attach one of these to show how it should look. Feel free to grab one when you make a correction.

I love when people get tattoos of flags on them and they’re displayed wrong on the tattoo.

Bless whoever made this post.

This is why it bothers me to see flag patches on uniforms with the stars on the right. Why are they like that??

This is only about displaying flags. The original post was to address the people that reblog incorrect flags. So posted or stationary flags. The reason why some flags seem reversed is because the stars should always go in the direction of travel. Imagine a flag on a flag pole. On the right shoulder the flag will look reversed because the person is assaulting forward not retreating.

Both on the should and on the pole, the stars are in the direction of travel.

Could we please, on 4th of July weekend, display flags correctly or not use them as props?

I just dunno why civilians (presumably) get PEQ-15s. Do people have NODs or?

Because… operator. It is OPAF and if you are OPAF you can magically see in the dark. If you weren’t a POG you would know that.
It might be a visible laser. if not they are gomers with more money than sense. But if it makes them feel tough/cool at least they are putting money into the economy so I guess that is a plus.

the greatest reply i could have possibly gotten

Glad I could help.
