Inappropriate piercings

Posted in Piercing News at 4:42 am by admin

According to Army Regulation 670-1 (Wear and Appearance of Army Uniforms and Insignia), Body piercing: “When on any Army installation or other places under Army control, soldiers may not attach, affix or display objects, articles, jewelry or ornamentation to or through the skin while they are in uniform, in civilian clothes on duty, or in civilian clothes off duty (this includes earrings for male soldiers).

However, Spc. Jed Martin, in the June 4 issue of Army Times, doesn’t appear to understand that policy [“He’s a vegan cutie,” Frontlines]. From his picture, one would deduce that he is in an Army barracks room, given the furniture behind him in the picture. If so, he is in violation of the above-mentioned policy because he has an earring device in each ear and a piercing in his lip.

When are we going to stop glorifying the lack of discipline of soldiers in today’s Army? To even put this picture in Army Times is a disgrace.

I’m all for soldiers winning stuff, but let’s portray the right image of our troops.

    Let me share a little bit with you, as I am the person to whom you are attacking. The regulation reads “When on any Army installation or other places under Army control,”… This is in face, an AIR FORCE barracks/dorm room, belonging to a good friend of mine in Germany. So in fact, I fall well within the confines of the regulation, as for the last 40+ years, no Air Force base has been under Army Control. Any questions or comments, I can be reached at jeddie_frost@yahoo.com or jedidiah.c.martin@us.army.mil. Thank you.
