An Active-Duty Eagle Protects Her Military

Lil Chantilly, of Heels and Handguns, is often on the prowl with her eagle-eyed vision, looking for folks with no common-sense when it comes to treating the military properly. And she found an article on a major no-no, in (of all places) Old Navy:

Aaron Bennett’s beef with Old Navy

Army veteran Aaron Bennett says he was banned from an Old Navy store in Jacksonville, Florida, after he pointed out a teen employee improperly wearing a Marine Corps uniform dress jacket complete with rank insignia, ribbons and a weapons badge, News4Jax.com reported Wednesday.

Bennett, who comes from a military family, knows that United States Code makes it illegal “to falsely represent oneself as having received any U.S. military decoration or medal.” The law making that illegal is known as the Stolen Valor Act.

One customer, Tacinta Connor, was quoted as saying she was no longer going to shop at Old Navy, Gap, Banana Republic, or Piperlime. That won’t be a problem for me. I never ventured into those places anyway.
