Army Veteran Banned from Old Navy Store Over Teen Employee in Marine Uniform
Vet’s story goes viral on Facebook
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.
Is this a case of the Navy not liking the Army? Nah… It’s a case of a stupid store manager, a stupid teenage employee, a stupid mall with stupid mall security… all in a military town. And where did the kid get the Marine Corps jacket? Where are the parents?
How to solve this Crisis PR problem? Well Old Navy, you just managed to whack your brand. You pissed off 35 million veterans and more. And one thing we all know about our men and women in the real uniforms, they learned how to accept a mission and execute it. They now have a cause…
And of course Old Navy, you did this right before the Christmas shopping season. The time of year that you make most of your sales and revenue.
Aww, the heck with it. Just fire everyone involved in the stupidity of it all. Old Navy will be lucky if they survive.
