If social media is a gray area to the military because its fairly new to them, then you first guys to do it are setting the bar and they are going to make sure you set the bar at a place that makes the military look good and you my friend have the bar set at Excellence!! Keep up the good work and congrats on that coin!

So, when my old Chief was, directly, selling the Girl Scout Cookies (for his daughter) to me and other guys in the detachment, he was violating DOD/Navy regulations?

Back when I got drafted in 70, no one for the most part wanted to go to Vietnam. Plus there was a lot of racial crap going on within the military. I love how you put the military in a good light and someone considering going active, should have a good idea what to expect. It won't kill them and most likely help them be more confident in life down the road. Keep up the good work.

Your emphasis on physical fitness is excellent for the Navy. The Navy is known for not being that into fitness and hopefully you will change that perception and reality.

Remember everything you do while in the Armed Forces wether ur off or on duty reflects there reputation of the branch of service especially when using logos or exposing training etc..Don't take it personal if your investigated. In my opinion I would refrain from engaging in any type of social media while apart of any type of military branch. But at the end of the day , you make your own decisions and determine what happens.

Imagine being in active combat with a selfie stick. P.O.W.s would ask for two extra minutes for hair and makeup amidst gunfire. The enemy would only shoot at you from their most flattering angle. Instead of IEDs, it there would be just a bag of head shots and contact information. Take cover, it's an aspiring actor! All kidding aside, you must have been relieved when they told you the investigation was pertaining to social media advertising policy. Perhaps I am wrong, but I can't fathom a discharge over something like this, at least not for a first time offense.

Very good to see you and how you are comes through. It cannot be faked the integrity you have is as an inspiration to all friendly people across the world. Please continue to inspire and take on more British challenges not sure if you have had a challenge with the Scottish regiments or not. But always good to maintain good contact with allies or making new friends too.

It’s interesting, the military is a whole new generation who’s been online for quite some years now, the old heads who came up without it are retiring or almost out . I just take it as a given, everyone has some kind of social media presence. Back in days I remember females who got in trouble for posing in bikinis in publications or contest, while bringing up they were in service. Now there are entire “curves n combats” “she can do both” companies with thousands of posters. And every day a new tactical T Shirt, Coffee, fitness military branded company opens up . If the military cracked down on these issues I’d say 25-50% of their force are doing things outside military for income, and relying heavily on that military/veteran connection to do so .

Would the BPN supplements you mentioned in this video be pushing a product. You have a discount code, which i assume gives you a % of the money from people using that code. Just wondering not hating. Keep it up brutha.

War story for you Austin, reference your basic tng lip cutting story. In 2003 my buddy and I are medics for a MP Co in Iraq. Arrived in country April 2003 in Karbala and December 2003 were moved to Abu Ghraib (we had nothing to do with the prison). The site is mortared and shot at daily. No big deal. Haircut. My buddy shaves his head. Has the Iraqi barber shave his head. He uses a straight razor. Just as he begins to make his 1st stroke boom. Right outside the open wall hallway. Then boom, boom, boom. 30 seconds of rapid fire mortar rounds hit. We all hit the floor as crap is flying through the air in the open hallway. I look at my buddy and his head is gushing blood where the barber's hand jerked and cut him wide open when the first round hit. Picture blood, shaving cream, dirt and I'm trying to stop the bleeding. He got stitches and a white bandage taped to his head. We called it a Kotex. Man did we laugh about that.

So you can’t make money through product endorsements but you were pushing a product at the top of the video with a 10% discount? How does that work within the framework you displayed on the whiteboard? You’re suggesting a product with a discount but yet they’re not giving you any money and, I assume, you’re not receiving any free product either which, I guess, would be the equivalent of earning money through not having to spend it...or is that a loophole in the rules?

Personally I don't think any serving soldier or officer should have another job outside of the service.. and as soon as you step over that line of making an income from RUrun then that should not be allowed... when a serving soldier posts on RUrun it can be regarded as military or government policy, which is very dangerous, and should not be allowed

Like you need to be controversial for some thin-skinned dickhead to take offense? This is the internet. This the place where maladjusted anti-social dumbasses live. As I write this, 34 pieces of shit disliked your video. Not to mention that this is 2019 where just breathing is a thought crime for the woke and perpetually offended. I knew before the video even began that this had to be because of political correctness in the officer corps. And I was right. Two hardcore Army thumbs up.
