16 years ago I was homeless in San Francisco and had taken to wearing camouflage pants as a sign of respect and solidarity for my dad and brothers who served. As I was walked downtown, I passed a few homeless vets and one angrily told me to stop wearing camos because it was disrespectful. He put in a few colorful words in there, too. 😉
I was shocked into not saying anything, but I’m saying it now.
I will start wearing them again in respect to my family’s service and all other vets, homeless and homed. 😉
Besides, all those pockets are handy for EDC.
I wish I was like all those flowery blog writers and pour my feelings out there because I feel strongly about this, but I’m just me.
