A mustache on your buttstock:

haha that’s great.  It’s nice to see humor brighten up any aspect of anyone’s job.

Available for $5 (per set of 4) over at Four Guys Guns.

Question… If something like this becomes widespread in a unit, will command put a stop to it?

It’s like those shitty hipster finger tattoos, but not totally retarded.

When they see one they’ll think nothing of it. When they see two they’ll be intrigued. When they see three they will have to investigate what it’s about. When they find out they will put a stop to it.

Really though it’s more likely to be up to the discretion of the individual commander and/or the lowest level of the chain of command that takes an interest. Sometimes fads take a while to get noticed in the military. I have no infantry experience to speak from, but I would guess this is more likely to pass overseas than at home.

Yes they would

just like anything that might raise morale in the unit, the command will put a stop to it…

Will command put a stop to it? Yes. In the New Army, if you or your soldiers are having fun or otherwise enjoying their jobs, you must stop it immediately. Probably article 15 someone too, just for good measure. Then make several new hour-long powerpoint presentations showing why it is unsafe or immoral to have fun.

This is good stuff! Command should leave petty things that put a smille on someone’s face alone.

im sure the argument is: first its mustaches on butts next thing you know some joker has painted his bradley to look like the general lee.
If you like a mustache on your butt thats up to you.

But I want to see a Bradley painted like the General Lee. Just think of the fear that will be invoked when they jump that bad boy over a rickety wooden bridge.

I just hope they remember to change the horn too.

The morale dynamic cannot be broken or the leadership loses leverage and engagement. Its the law of powers. It brings order to chaos, and keeps troops alive.
