  • If you tell someone off that is higher ranking than your husband, then yes he can get in trouble and so could you. You are his responsibility and if he can not control you and if this is an ongoing thing, then they can send you back home. I had a neighbor that got sent back home for the same reasons you just mentioned.

  • I haven't told any of them off but I really want to right now! My husband just got back from Afghanistan 3 weeks ago, Im going to have our 3rd baby any day now and they just told him we can't take leave for more than 14 days (it takes us 2 days to get home and 2 days back here, so we'd only get 10 days at home) and that our leave can't run through Christmas and New Year's. That is when my kids' break from school is... that's the only time we have that we can go. Im so mad right now.. I just want everyone at home to be able to welcome my husband back from deployment and meet our new baby. There's my 'military spouse' rant for the day. It isn't often I have issues with higher ranking people or the military in general but once in awhile things just don't make sense and it pisses me off.

    As for your story, my husband never goes off base or into an area where you are not supposed to wear uniform even if its just for a moment.

  • No I never would do that. Because you would not get in trouble. Your DH would get in trouble. The saying "What you do, gets your active duty spouse in trouble" at work. That goes for your kids too. She has a right to correct him.  You as just a spouse needs to learn to stay out of military business. Or your DH will get into a lot of trouble one day for your actions.

  • As a military wife and also a military member myslef, I can tell you it would be a bad idea to tell someone off that is higher ranking than your husband. She was actually right in correcting him for being in uniform in a place he shouldn't be, and If you were to anger her more, she could find out who is directly in charge of your husband and tell them what happened. Depending on how your husbands command is, that could mean extra working hours or worse. Wearing an unauthorized uniform in a public place is actually "disobeying a lawful order" and chargeable under the ucmj (description of the ucmj- http://usmilitary.about.com/od/justicelawlegislation/l/blucmj.htm). You have to be careful because the military has all of the "rules" pretty defined and angering someone who has every right to enforce the rules could lead to nasty effects.

  • Every branch of service has thier own rules. Army members are allowed to wear thier cammies in public. I'm going to take a shot in the dark and say your husband is a Marine, Marines are the most strict on uniform wear.

  • Sorry, that's a rule. You can't be mad at someone for pointing out that he's in the wrong.

    And no, I've never had the urge to tell off anyone higher ranking than my husband. Those are his bosses, and my actions reflect on my husband.
