#1 If he'd more ambition, he'd be POTUS now.

#2 Last week he pushed his luck a little too much when he came to our PT formation wearing ACUs with CPT rank, Ranger tab and a 101st unit and deployment patches. He told our 1st Sgt that he was looking for a private who was talking on his cellphone and failed to salute him as he passed.

Translation?

#3 Probably some doubt and much discussion about poor Stansbury at Eglin before this happened, but when he rudely interrupted a USAF yoga PT session over an alleged failure to salute, the tats were just too much.

#2 Last week he pushed his luck a little too much when he came to our where a group of us were working out. He wore an Army uniform with Captain's rank insignia, a patch showing he had been though Green Beret school, and patches showing he had been to war while assigned to the 101st Airborne Division. He told our leader that he was looking for a private who was talking on his cellphone and failed to salute him as he passed.

That's how this old Sailor understood it anyway .

#6 FOD, I think that a Ranger tab means he went to Ranger school, rather than Green Beret school. Green Berets are like SEALs.(but not as good, of course, cuz they're Army, not Navy.)

Another former sailor.

#7 Do the Marines have a Special Forces unit of some sort, or are they all special?
