Happy Halloween from Maverick and Charlie

Yesterday's uniform is today's costume...

Great costumes. I like your squint Brandon, but I shouldn't be able to see it. Where are your aviator glasses?

I was a somewhat generic, 1970's/Latino/Scarface-ish/Exploitation film star dude with a porn moustache thrown in. It was awesome. Plus, I stayed in character and spoke with a Cuban accent the whole night, or the closest approximation thereof.

Why would you wear a currently authorized uniform in the US military and call it a "costume"? I not really angry, but people put themselves in harm's way on a daily basis wearing that "costume".

I understand that you wear your old flight suit in the spirit of things of Halloween, but you are treading a fine line here. You are making a mockery of you past parading around like your Tom Cruise. It isn't sexy and it isn't cool.

Think of it in this context: that if you were attending a Veteran's Day parade and you see the old ex-military men wearing their uniforms and their medals with beaming pride... are they wearing "costumes"?

Wow, POD. Sorry I've offended you buddy. I see your point, truly, but I think it's simple semantics that are frustrating you rather than true motivations.

Would it help if I said you always looked sexy in your flight suit? :-)

Besides, I think we both know my feelings about patriotism and the US military, current events not withstanding.

And it's a flight suit, essentially a pair of coveralls with a squadron patch and a velcro name patch. Which is like saying I can't wear my Navy issued work boots or camo pants in a context apart from the uniform. POD may actually feel that way too, but where does it end? Socks? T-shirts that have my name stenciled in them?
Maybe if we were talking about ribbons and medals on a dress uniform, or even summer whites, I'd see his point, but not with this. Life's too short.

POD, lighten up buddy. What do you say to all those nurse's and french maids? They work hard everyday too. Is that a mockery too?
