So, I run into the store to pay for my gas the other night. As I am in line, this older guy in front of me turns and tells me " you guys are doing a great job ". Now, I assumed he noticed the "Civil Air Patrol" on my BDU's...He goes on to say he's retired Air Force..Ok, Cool...then, he points twords my GT badge, then goes on to tell me how he still sees a doctor becuase his knee is messed up from multiple "jumps". As I listened to him for a few minutes, it donned on me that he mis-took my GT badge for some kind of Paratrooper seal. I think he thaught I was active duty! I was about to tell him that I was CAP and not AF, but he was turning to walk out. SO, I left it be. On the way out, he waved and told me again to "keep up the good work"
My feel-good moment of the day!
I guess the badge DOES kinda look like a paratrooper thingy. Can anyone post a photo of real one? For comparison?
