I used to wear my 101st Airborne jump jacket around, and I always got a favorable response. Once, I was at a McDonalds and an 80 something year old guy came up who was IN the 101st in WWII came up and talked to me for a bit, and said it was like a blast from the past. There was another con where I wore a dress uniform (the ONE time it fit me) with the pea cutter, and we went out to eat, and two older ladies looked like they were having flashbacks. Another time, I wore it to a memorial day celebration at a military cemetary where they do the timeline and actually had a WWII vet thank me for wearing it that day. I've had a lot of good reactions to it. But yeah...doing so in a uniform that ISN'T American (or one of our allies) would probably get some pretty negative responses.
“You’re better than having to deal with assholes. You’re better than people who don’t honor you. You’re fucking awesome, this is your journey, and it should not be slowed down—I don’t care if it’s your boss, your boyfriend, or your fucking dog. Anyone that doesn’t dig your shit, then you need to move on, because we don’t have time to waste. However, you do have an obligation: You–must–rock.” -Greg Behrendt
