Finally, there’s a myriad of servicemembers who post photos of themselves scantily clad in uniform or wearing their uniform against regulations or paired with inappropriate hand signs.
What is the point in showcasing these military blunders? I can’t reiterate how permanent social media posts are. Once something is posted live in social media platforms like Twitter, Instagram, or even to your Facebook “friends”, people will share the information or take screenshots and you could be facing consequences sooner than later. I highly doubt that any of these people shown in this post will ever be given a leadership position.
Stop and think about what you’re posting. Sure, we all get bored and we’re going to fill the time with goofy behavior, but just stop with the pictures already. None of us are perfect. I know I’m not alone in being thankful that I went to college before social media became king, but this is the reality that we are in today.
If you’re going to be drinking or acting stupid, lock the cameras and cell phones up – it just may well affect your career in the military.
