    Perhaps the military is not the correct career choice for this guy.

    Dressing up as stereotypical enemies of one’s country for Halloween parties is likely a common practice in the military. Trying your role out at a by attempting to come on base in full regalia unless you are a well known member of the local military police having fun with your peers is a bit of a reach.

      How? Obama has demanded that most military bases should be gun free zones. Easier to have work place incidents that way.

        Actually that was Clinton and Obama just hasn’t changed it. Trust me I am no fan of Obama, but the problem was created by Clinton.

    If he really wanted to frighten them he should have dressed as a psychiatrist.
