PERSEC & Facebook

#1
I literally cannot count the amount of people's statuses that have this in today:

Soldiers, sailors and airmen are changing their Facebook profile photo to one of them in uniform as a mark of respect to the 6 fellow servicemen killed in Afghanistan this week.

It's unreal the amount of people doing it, I've already pointed out to many people, some seniors that this goes against everything we have been taught.

Am I just being an idiot here?

As long as your wearing your tinfoil hat, you'll be ok.

Totally in agreement. I don't understand how an ally photo shows any respect to someone.

Perhaps just a little naive. Bless.

I responded to one asking why they were doing it (there's I think one, ruthlessly suppressed, phot of me in DPM in the whole world) and got a mouthful about respect and the like.

Seems a bit odd and sad to me. I suppose most of their mates know what they do for a living though.

Well I just got told I obviously don't give a **** about the dead for questioning this. Meh.

I think the real issue here is that he literally couldn't count the 4 friends who had changed their status.

Top 10%........

:eek:D

Well it's nice to know sparky that somebody is including me in that top 10% for a change, I mostly get told I'm basically RLC.

Yeah but I feel partly responsible for unleashing you on 1st line. Must have a word with Big Ginger Bob to make sure he picks on you! ;)
 
#15
He loves me too much to do that. Although I've got a few months in theatre with him so my life could be made hell lol, but a juniors revenge is always in the brews ;)

Or just some old blokes who are changing a picture to show that in these days of self first, self last & self everything that they still give a f*ck. But hey if people judge others by their own standards :)

I've changed mine, but it's to a dashing pic of me as I'm attempting to cultivate a maiden for shits and giggles. Plus if you're a long time out, who gives a **** about persec, and for that matter, who gives a **** if you're still in. If the Four Lions want to slot a squaddie, infiltrating FB is a long way round. Why not go to a garrison town and scope it out for a microsecond.
But mostly it's just a mark of respect, and seeing as its my profile to do what the **** I want with, I'll do exactly that.
