Old Navy Store insults the military

Jack Kemp Here's an article quote which also has an embedded television news video:|main5|dl3|sec1_lnk2%26pLid%3D172257 An Army veteran claims an Old Navy store in Jacksonville, Fla., kicked him out after he commented to the store's management about an employee's uniform. Aaron Bennett says he was shopping at the store's location in Orange Park when he noticed an employee wearing something unusual: a Marines dress uniform that "had rank on the side, couple rows or ribbons and a weapons badge," he said. It's illegal in the United States under the "Stolen Valor" act for civilians to impersonate military by wearing uniforms or medals. Bennett, who comes from a military family, said he told the store manager about the staff member's apparel. He claims he was then approached by a deputy and members of mall security, who told him he was banned from the store. END QUOTE And here's a video: The store's executives are already backtracking from these local jerks in Jacksonville, a city with a large US Navy (the real Old Navy) population. Others have chosen to boycott the store. I maybe have been in an Old Navy once in 10 years and will continue my ongoing de facto boycott.
