If that guy is a General Officer, then I just relieved Admiral Harvey as Commander Fleet Forces Command .... and Skippy-san is my Chief of Staff, MTH my Aide, Maggie my Flag Sec, AW1 my Flag Writer, LBG the Staff JAG, E40 my J2, Sid my J3, Byron my J4, Lee my J5, and I don't know who my J6 is because I just fired all the contractors and geeks make me twitchy.
Here is the background on this dude; was spotted at George R. Brown Convention Center at the Annise Parker for Houston Mayor Victory Party.
Even for a Navy guy, the violations of uniform regs are legion - to start with he is way too young and ghey - but to the non-military, Brigadier General McSoulpatchy seems OK. I don't want to waste time quoting all the violations, but let me help you out in the review of the theater of the absurd.
Well, lets review the "awards" at least. You can see a high-res here and a full-frontal here.
His decorations include;
Round Patch, right side says "Central Intelligence Agency." Ummm yea. Great start.
Around the neck is the British Commander of the British Empire (CBE).
2 Distinguished Service Cross
2 Silver Star
National Defense (too bad he didn't make it easy on us and forget this one)
CIB w/ 2 stars
Master jump wings
Helo pilot badge
Air assault wings
.... and so on. How did he ever have the time to complete JPME 1 & II?
To the point Texas readers;
WE NEED A NAME. If you know, email-twitter-facebook me at the POC above. This is illegal as per The Stolen Valor act and this guy needs to go to jail. This has been a cancer for a long time, but with the internet we can do what other generations could not. As I always mention at times like this, if you have not read B. G. Burkett & Glenna Whitley's book Stolen Valor : How the Vietnam Generation Was Robbed of Its Heroes and Its History you need to follow the link and get a copy.
UPDATE: Here's the pig pile so far.
