    It could be labeled as “culturally insensitive” or ignorance – probably both as I believe some have educated Mogged on this already. I am not a Marine but know many. Ask a Marine and they will tell you: 1) there are no FORMER Marines as once you earn the PRIVILEGE of calling yourself a Marine, you will always do so; 2) The ONLY way to earn this privilege is to graduate USMC boot camp in Parris Island or San Diego – period; 3) Implying in ANY manner you are a Marine is Stolen Valor and (I think) is prosecutable under federal law: 4) it is OK for the parent of a Marine to show their parental pride and identify themselves with hats, shirts, etc as long as it says “Marine Dad” or “Marine Mom” (but this is not what Mogged does); 5) All Marines are trained killers (PC/liberal version is just “rifleman”) and anyone passing themselves off as a Marine is likely to get a severe beating. My 82 year old father is a Marine with 8 years duty – if he saw Mogged wearing that hat, especially for the political diversion reasons he does so, my Dad would demand Mogged remove the hat and would not relent, including the possibility of physical force (and anyone touching my 82 year old father would have to deal with me too).

    I think it was disgraceful for him to wear that hat that would suggest to most veterans that he was a former Marine. I know some former Marines who would take a very personal interest if they saw that. I hope he wore it out of ignorance. To wear it for political gain is unconscionable.
