Vet Thrown Out of Old Navy Store for Respecting the Uniform
Sometimes doing the right thing gets you in trouble. The brave do what’s right anyway.
Army veteran Aaron Bennett was recently thrown out of an Old Navy store in Florida. His crime? Pointing out to the store manager that one of his employees was violating federal law through his clothing!
Specifically, the staffer wore a Marine jacket decorated with several rows of military ribbons and badges. No one thinks the employee did it on purpose, but wearing such a military jacket is in violation of the federal “Stolen Valor” law.
Bennett, trying not to embarass the young man, told the manager of the matter. Moments later, security was escorting him out of the store! Bennett was also informed that he was banned from the store (though would you go back to a store that treated you like that?).
For its part, Old Navy claimed the whole incident was a “misunderstanding” and that an investigation was underway.
