Royal Canadian Navy vets can’t wear uniforms without permission



http://www.thestar.com/news/canada/2013/06/20/royal_canadian_navy_vets_cant_wear_uniforms_without_permission.html



“Requests by former RCN service members to wear uniforms, including mess dress, will be considered on a case-by-case basis. Such approval shall be limited to exceptional circumstances where the wearing of the uniform is necessary and will favourably contribute to the RCN.”

The order has caused an out roar among military veterans on social media.

“F--- that,” wrote one Royal Canadian Air Force veteran on Facebook. “Wore mine getting married, even told the Navy while stuck with them ‘C’mon get me for wearing it.’ ”

2. Now people are being told what they can wear.

 

If someone puts their ass on the line for their country, there should be no debate about how or when they wear their uniform.

Fight for the protection of freedoms but not be allowed to exercise such freedoms themselves? Why aren't politicians stepping in on this issue?
