so for arguments sake he is what he says he is. If he has been discharged from service he can do what ever he likes with his metals and uniform. It could even be said its a form of protest. I do believe Vietnam vets did the same thing.
Hmmmm, Have to disagree somewhat.
The Vietnam vets I knew and lived with would sometimes wear their medals on civvies, but I can't remember any wearing them on a disfigured uniform. Certainly not the patriotic vets, at least.

Yeah I have been in the military(not the marines) I know how it works dress wise. Im just saying if this guy is discharged he can do what ever he likes in the name of protest. and from the vid it seemed he was protesting.

You know, I have to wonder, do these fakes think they can earn respect by wearing little bits of metal and colored cloth? A REAL veteran understands that what matters is the CHARACTER that the little goo-gahs are given to commemorate that matters.

While I agree with a lot of his message, I have my doubts about his service credentials. I’ve never seen a Marine look so unsat in uniform (we don’t disgrace our uniform like that; we don’t wear cammies in public….we don’t roll our sleeves like that….we CERTAINLY don’t wear medals and ribbons on cammies or paint flags on our backs).
Regardless, his message is legit and I hope it gets out. Maybe he should dress in civilian clothes next time though if he wants to be taken seriously. If he was a Marine he'd know better.

A Marine gives a speech in New York. He says the military is waking up and asking questions. I hope he's right.
Published on Sep 12, 2013 This video was shot on september 11th 2013, in Time Sq at an Rethink911.org rally. In this video John a former U.S Marine with 5 engineering degrees with an expertise in aviation and missile defense says he knows the U.S government is lying about the 9/11 terrorist events.
but a little hard to see.

HOLY # GUYS
I just had an amazing idea.
Kickstarter for a "build one of the trade center towers and fly a passenger jet into it" test.
i know it costs MILLIONS to make a building and crash a plane, if everyone that didnt believe and wanted a proper test gave a $/£/€ they could cover the cost in a few weeks.
Too crazy? or the only way to have clinical, final, 100% proof. TOTALLY doable on the sheer number of skeptics.
And if the US gov want to prove they were correct, well they can pay some in too, right?
*actual test performed 100% by independent scientists and engineers NOT on USA soil*
