I decided to finally write up my frustrations with authoring for the Kindle ecosystem.

I am as well. The Corsair is one of my favorite aircraft of all time.

Quick poll for US service members, either current or former:

I have a long woollen US Marine Corp coat dating from the 1960s or 70s. It was a gift to me from a family member after I saw it in an antique shop.

It still has the red rank patches (Sergeant?) on the sleeves. I've already had a few people come up to me and ask me if I served or if it was just a coat that I found somewhere.

I don't want to flag as something I'm not. But I've also had one ex-service member tell me that it would be more respectful to keep the patches on.

The question: is it more respectful to keep the patches or remove them for civilian wear? And if the latter, any particular way I should treat them after removal?

Thanks!

You're likely right. Perhaps it's 10 USC 771. I just recall being cautioned in boot camp (which was nearly centuries ago, roughly) that full military regalia (but not surplus, undecorated stuff) was not for civilian wear. IANAL nor do I play one on G+ Apologies for the citation.

Nope, although we've been there too.
