It disgusts me when I see brave people like this Marine subjected to humiliation and petty tyranny by cowards who would risk neither life nor limb for the people they supposedly protect. I remember when I was a young Marine just out of boot camp, myself and a few other new Marines were hassled by a rude TSA agent in an airport security line who made us take off our dress uniform coats and run them through security while berating us to move faster, which was totally pointless; how many fresh new Marines wearing form-fitting dress uniforms have tried to start trouble at airports, aside from maybe drinking too much at the bar inside? I could tell he was taking pleasure in bossing around new Marines who would not talk back or question due to having just been conditioned to instantly obey authority figures in boot camp.

Tractorman jr. (my youngest son) headed for Marine boot camp yesterday.
Semper Fi and God bless you.

I'm going to guess right about ZERO. I spend a lot of (too much?) time in airports; I see a lot of US military personnel in them, both in and out of uniform. I have seen them look tired, refreshed, happy, sad, worried, eager, hurried, relaxing ... sort of like most business travelers.

I have NEVER seen them causing trouble, looking for trouble, or treating airport/airline employees or fellow passengers with any form of disrespect.

I cannot say the same for TSA toads.

Sounds like he likely tried to get into the military and they wouldn’t have him...

Sorry you were treated this way;
Thanks For Your Service!
