Marine Officer’s Wife Emotionally Disturbed After Being Denied Salute Stormtrooper May 15, 2012 Marine Corps 386 Comments OKINAWA, JAPAN — Some have remarked that being a Marine Wife is the ‘toughest job in the Corps’, but for one spouse, it’s gotten even tougher. As she recently pulled into the main gate of Camp Foster, Michelle Sully suffered severe emotional distress after Lance Corporal Kevin Hansen failed to render a salute to her vehicle last Thursday. “It was just so terrible,” said Sully between tears. “I drove my car up to the guardhouse, and after he [Hansen] checked my ID, he just… stood there. No salute, barely even a wave.” The vehicle in question — a gray Nissan Skyline favored by DoD personnel stationed on Okinawa — was clearly marked, with the blue decal denoting it as an officer’s vehicle prominently placed on the windshield. The vehicle’s bumper also bore several “Marine Officer’s Wife” and “His Boots, Her Sandals” stickers, further solidifying the fact that this vehicle demanded respect. When questioned about his violation of protocol, Lance Corporal Hansen was apologetic. “I just don’t know how I could have made such an awful mistake. I’d personally like to apologize to the blue decal for any suffering I may have caused.” Hansen’s immediate supervisor, Staff Sgt. Eric Doney, is currently contemplating Battalion level non-judicial punishment, and had choice words to say on the matter. “We MP’s care a lot about the customs and courtesies of the Corps. The dishonor and lack of respect Lance Corporal Hansen showed to that poor little blue decal. It fills me with contempt.” “Mrs. Lieutenant Sully,” as she demands to be referred to, is currently seeking unspecified damages against Hansen for the emotional distress she experienced. The case is currently pending. Trevor Mocha Wilson says: April 11, 2014 at 4:54 PM Wow what a boring life she must live if she was ‘emotionally distressed’ over not being saluted maybe she could be a marine herself and actually earn that instead of just ask to be called “Mrs. Lieutenant Sully,” Jay Shannon says: April 11, 2014 at 4:54 PM It is incredible how many of you morons do not know The Duffle Blog is comedy. Allie Perez says: February 26, 2014 at 12:55 AM that wife is an idiot and needs to be slapped right across the face.. I’m pretty sure shes not doing half the shit her husband has been doing downrange. Jason Rash says: February 26, 2014 at 12:55 AM I dated a civilian chick from J-actionville once. She was driving me back to base one morning, and after being waved thru the checkpoint, she just sat there. Just sat there and stared at the MP. I’m like “wtf are are you doing?” It was about then the MP noticed her father’s blue sticker he had slapped on the car, and promptly saluted it. Needless to say, we didn’t date anymore after that. Shellee Arnold says: February 26, 2014 at 12:55 AM oh jesus…and an LTs wife too. Judith Taggart says: February 26, 2014 at 12:55 AM How can you read the Duffleblog and not grasp the fact it is satire? Really. Troy Barnhill says: February 26, 2014 at 12:55 AM I know this is satire but I was an mp in the army and when I’d work main gate the officers would actually slow down to be saluted , haha , pricks Cody Davis says: February 26, 2014 at 12:55 AM OMG people, it’s called SATIRE! This entire site is dedicated to making fun of the bullshit the average enlisted military person has to put up with. Jared Ackerman says: February 26, 2014 at 12:55 AM You are all retarded. David Croteau says: February 26, 2014 at 12:55 AM I’m just laughing my ass off at all the idiots who don’t realize this is a fake news site, like The Onion. Heather Speidell says: February 26, 2014 at 12:55 AM Wives need to learn that their husbands carry the rank not them. Paul Bultman says: January 3, 2014 at 1:40 AM skull fuck the bitch! Nicole Remmler says: January 3, 2014 at 1:40 AM What a dumb fucking bitch! Tom Welch says: January 3, 2014 at 1:40 AM what a boring life she must have, to worry about that stuff… Mike Moore says: January 3, 2014 at 1:40 AM Stickers on the car are Photo Shopped. Fake Anthony Meregillano Nguy says: January 3, 2014 at 1:40 AM I bet she was a blonde. Ausra Bodnar says: January 3, 2014 at 1:40 AM OMG she is NOT in the military, that is her HUBBY”S rank NOT hers! and shit like that really does happen! damn OSMW….. Kathleen Martinez says: January 3, 2014 at 1:40 AM Unless she was a previous Medal of Honor recipient, she should not be saluted. Krista Calixtopiza says: January 3, 2014 at 1:40 AM That Bitch don’t deserver a dam Salute! NEWS FLASH Its your HUSBANDS RANK NOT YOUR! You Didn’t do JACK S@#T to deserver a Salute! You are not entitle to jack S@$T.. Michael Schlegel says: January 3, 2014 at 1:40 AM NJP? really? This is what the Marine Corps has come to? Guess we do not have better things to do then NJP Marines for not saluting an officer’s wife. Another reason to get out of the Corps. Jon Stichler says: January 3, 2014 at 1:40 AM This is so ridiculous..She does not deserve to get saluted. She’s not the one serving our country and she’s not the one that busted her ass for that rank. Topher S Dempsey says: January 3, 2014 at 1:40 AM it must have been her time of the month, I mean for that kind of crap.. I would have just whipped it out and smacked the windshield.. then she can that was “emotional distress” a fliippin LIEUTENANT! wow whippersnapper Amanda Prudom says: January 3, 2014 at 1:40 AM My husband says all you have to do is salute the sticker(i understand this sounds stupid but that’s what they are told, doesn’t matter who’s in the vehicle..) and ps get a life you dependapotumus… Janelle Hageman- Cramer says: January 3, 2014 at 1:40 AM This is stupid. If this chic wants to be saluted, send her to boot camp and if she can pass it without wanting her mom and daddy and wanting to go home, then MAYBE she will be saluted for a job well done. Marines are about respect and honor, her concieted ways lead to others believing that all Military wives are like that. My husband earned his rank, not me…. Sarah Marie Person says: January 3, 2014 at 1:40 AM Seriously? You have got to be kidding me! This man is going to get NJP’d for some dumb bitch who never has served a fucking day in the military how disgusting! God I hope the MC doesn’t do something stupid and charge him wtf. William Anthony Hatch Jr. says: January 3, 2014 at 1:40 AM As a former 5811, I used to see this behavior, somewhat frequently. There were a few “delta whiskey’s” who would actually WAIT….for what they felt was their salute. There were occasions when their “entitlements” were explained to them. (I didn’t realy make a difference) Sometimes I’d humor them, others I’d flash my smile & wave them through. I read a comment about it being a satirical story, partially based on the MP’s having apologized to the blue sticker. You’re wrong sir, I’ve seen it done. I’ve seen Marines lean in towards the windshield & salute the sticker. It’s a very sad, but very real occurence. I feel for her husband, who not only is going to hear it from EV-UH-RY BODY, but he has to explain to his wife, that she doesn’t rate. Smh, Semper Fi Delta Whiskey, Semper Fi. Shaun Ridings says: January 3, 2014 at 1:40 AM I’m with most of these other comments in that this HAS to be a joke. Spouses of officers do NOT warrant receiving salutes. Typically, an MP will salute after checking ID to ensure that the DRIVER/OWNER of the vehicle is indeed an officer, therefore deserving of a salute. I’ve never seen anybody except for actual officers receive salutes, but I could be wrong since I’m Army and this is Marines. It just sounds fishy to me. Jimmie Oing says: January 3, 2014 at 1:40 AM As a former Marine, I highly respect and applaud the many spouses who stayed behind while their spouses go fight in combat. I know it is never easy for any single spouse to stay behind and care for their family – if they have children. However for any spouse, as in this article to file compensation for emotional stress; I agree with many who stated to slap this woman to put some sense into her empty head; that Marine may one day put his life, if not already, in combat for this Nation. Equally he deserves respect and gratitude for his sacrifices; as to his spouse, if he is married. Just because she married a Marine does not make her a Marine. I earned my title and my rank. As with many of my fellow Veteran Devil Dogs; I am proud to be a Marine. This issue should never have gone this far; other than this woman is greedy wanting monetary compensation. Shame on her! Csokuly Evie says: January 3, 2014 at 1:40 AM Get real , Lady! I understand the tradition and code of the Corp, but the only respect and honor you deserve other than common courtesy, is when you are with your husband THE LIEUTENANT! Mala Moragain says: January 3, 2014 at 1:40 AM I love that they are apologizing to the “decal” instead of the mentally unstable “wife” of a Marine. I agree in that she holds no personal rank and rank is not given to spouses for merely being a spouse. I think she needs some serious help if this holds any truth, especially ifshe was “tearful” from such a minor incident. And yes, the car and decal probably do have more rank than her! WOW! (That’s like saying I’m Mrs. Forklift Driver, since that’s what my husband does!) Jonathan Dale DeVries says: January 3, 2014 at 1:39 AM hahahaha what a dumb bitch. Justin Kornfeld says: January 3, 2014 at 1:39 AM *You don’t know who I am, do you?*. Wilma J Rivera says: January 3, 2014 at 1:39 AM Who is she the first lady! Her husband is the officer not her Lol! Jennifer Martin says: January 3, 2014 at 1:39 AM I wouldn’t be surprised if this has actually happened. Maitiú Rozinka says: January 3, 2014 at 1:39 AM Poor blue decal. He had a rough day! Craig Dixon says: January 3, 2014 at 1:39 AM 2 damn funny…. Jeremy Harrington says: January 3, 2014 at 1:39 AM Glad to see dumb ass military spouses are not limited to the Army. I guess I can sleep at night now. Logan Bone says: January 3, 2014 at 1:39 AM Guys, the site isn’t a real news outlet, its just satire. Look at the About Us section at the top. Cassie Tripp says: January 3, 2014 at 1:39 AM She has got to be kidding…no wonder everyone thinks all military wives are a bunch of self absorbed idiots…someone slap her… Elizabeth Archuleta-Rawlins says: January 3, 2014 at 1:39 AM For real? Is this lady serious? I am the wife of a Military police officer, and I would never get butt hurt because I didn’t get saluted at the gate. Someone needs to tell that OSMW to shit up, and put her in her place! Preferably her husband! Vicki Hunter Olson says: January 3, 2014 at 1:39 AM Are you kidding me? She is NOT the officer! She is NOT the marine! Grow up you spoiled little brat & get a life of your own! If that guard gets punished fro this their policies seriously need to be looked at! Timothy Cain says: January 3, 2014 at 1:39 AM I think it is funny. We have to appreciate that she can be an officer’s wife and the stress she may go through. But it was probably a mandatory I.D. check and when the MP notice that she was just a wife of an officer. didn’t think the salute was warranted. Battalion leader’s didn’t address the MP in not saluting the wife but the officer sticker on the vehicle. Shame on her. HA HA HA. Bobby Mulvihill says: January 3, 2014 at 1:39 AM and…….this is why I’m getting out. people are getting fucking retarded. Troy R. Stull says: January 3, 2014 at 1:39 AM I actually had almost this exact thing happen to me when I did a rotation as a gate guard. Eben Osgood says: January 3, 2014 at 1:39 AM This is as pathetic as the officers’ wives that try to get in front of everyone at the commissary or hospital. Jose Luis Garcia says: January 3, 2014 at 1:39 AM The duffelblog is either getting too good at writing realistic articles, or people are getting dumber… Samantha Wickstrom says: January 3, 2014 at 1:39 AM Man this woman is a moron….News flash…If you want the salute JOIN THE MARINES! Till then you wear the title…you didn’t earn it! Get a life! Gunny Hickman says: January 3, 2014 at 1:39 AM Lt. Sully needs to be called on the capet by his Co. and get a serious ass chew’n after that the CG’s Wife should pay a visit to Mrs Sully and get her all up in her face. After all that’s done, Lt. Sully needs his ass beaten. Zeth Moguel says: January 3, 2014 at 1:39 AM No I will not salute you you dumb broad! I will salute your husband because he’s an officer but not you or even less your blue decal! You don’t deserve to be saluted or respected just because you are demanding it! Mary Denier says: January 3, 2014 at 1:39 AM Are you kidding? She should be saluting him for his bravery in putting his life on the line to save her butt. Her husband certainly deserves the salute but she is being a self centered drama queen. Randy Aguirre says: January 3, 2014 at 1:39 AM obviously this is a joke because Officers do not use the blue decal in Okinawa. They have the big “O” in front top center of the windshield. but anyways , this shit does happen all the time. especially with SNCOs wives. In my little time in this gun club I have had a couple of encounters with spouses who believe they have they same authority as Marines. pathetic but in reality is the Marine’s fault for not putting their spouses in a reality check. Sarah L. D'Urso says: January 3, 2014 at 1:39 AM Ladies, this is obviously a joke. Jennifer Limerick says: January 3, 2014 at 1:39 AM Are you freakin kidding me? If you want rank and get saluted you better JOIN the military NOT MARRY IT! Give me a F’in break! Gabriel Hernandez says: January 3, 2014 at 1:39 AM lmao. this lady is an idiot. why should they have to salute your damn car, let alone you? I don’t know if those MP’s were being sarcastic when they said they didn’t mean to disrespect that poor little blue decal. I hope so. cause it was funny as shit. I’ll be damned if my wife has to follow some Civilian Code of Spousal Justice, and answer to some officers wife and get belittled by them like how we do at times. I signed up for that shit, not her. My wife should be able to slap a ho if she wanted to. Kimi Haack says: January 3, 2014 at 1:39 AM I think I’ll go buy Hansen a 24 pack of Beer! Dumb wives. WE AREN’T MARINES WE DIDN’T FREAKING EARN THEIR RANK! I don’t care how many blow jobs you’ve given in the marriage or before. Marisa Latham says: January 3, 2014 at 1:39 AM I’m appalled! Mrs. Lieutenant r u kidding me! I’ve known wifes to wear their husbands ranks but holy crap! And I love the way they say they didn’t show respect to the “little blue decal”. Elijah Foster says: January 3, 2014 at 1:39 AM that poor sticker…. Dennis Cherup says: January 3, 2014 at 1:39 AM Oh this is too funny! Michelle Rico Bell says: January 3, 2014 at 1:39 AM This is a joke! Anthony Harms says: January 3, 2014 at 1:39 AM An Lt’s wife? Really? She is pathetic! Cassandra Sutton says: January 3, 2014 at 1:39 AM This story can not be true…what a narcissitic BITCH. Krystal J Loyd says: January 3, 2014 at 1:39 AM What a fucking joke..i wouldnt apologize to her dumb ass. Tam Nguyen says: January 3, 2014 at 1:39 AM What’s the deal with that R32? Edward Gutierrez says: January 3, 2014 at 1:39 AM talk about bull shit I would not salute her ether. aw man poor kid going up for this gona stay on his record… o ya that’s y I got the FUCK OUT! only in japan. William H Gill says: January 3, 2014 at 1:39 AM What’s worse then this, How about being close to retirement your on an extended deployment and your spouse comes up pregnent and tells you your not the dad and tricare med pays for the baby then you end up giving half of your retirement and up tp 50% of any VA disablity after the divorce. (BETTER CHECK OUT THE USFSPA). Joshua D. Wise says: January 3, 2014 at 1:39 AM Jesus Christ how many bases are on Okinawa? I went there like 3 or 4 times while in the military and I didn’t even know about this one. No wonder the Okinawans want the military out of there. Lela N James says: January 3, 2014 at 1:39 AM These are all jokes. This website is kinda like The Onion for military people. Jazz Gray says: January 3, 2014 at 1:39 AM please tell me this is a joke… Juan Carlos Rondon Rodriguez says: January 3, 2014 at 1:39 AM What the fuuuuuck……..She should be taugh that she doesn’t have a freaking rank! its her husband. I say fuck her. Now I’m not married but if I had a wife and she told me she ” suffered severe emotional distress” cause a lower rank didn’t salute her…Id say..But you don’t have a rank…next time u salute him. Denise Phipps Hayes says: January 3, 2014 at 1:39 AM ARE YOU KIDDING ME? This woman/CHILD is NOT an OFFICER! the MP should not be punished! I REALLY LIKE Bobby Morel (statement below) let her stand on her feet for 10 hrs a day & see what happens! Ken Broxton says: January 3, 2014 at 1:39 AM Nate Woodard, you are nothing but a self centered know it all spoiled little brat, this shit happens allot, and you calling people retards, look in the mirror, the pot calling the kettle black. I have witnessed it more than once and been the victim of a civilian doing the same crap… This one may be fabricated and may not, but never the less this happens often. Major General Patton , the famous General’s son had a meeting with allot of spouses and told them to sit by rank and when they did he corrected them and told them they had no rank, there is a story of another ranking officer doing basically the same thing…. Chelsea Israel says: January 3, 2014 at 1:39 AM even if this story is fake it still really does happen. Alan Fife says: January 3, 2014 at 1:39 AM If this Staff Seargent brings NJP against this Marine, he needs to have his ass kicked. SNCO’s are suppose to train and protect their Marines. Taking the easy way out, isn’t what marines do. Grow a set, SSG and do your damn job! Laura Eddings Parry says: January 3, 2014 at 1:39 AM I laughed out loud. Cody Roberts says: January 3, 2014 at 1:39 AM Funny thing is it happened to two of us while walking at Courthouse Bay. Lachlan Munns says: January 3, 2014 at 1:39 AM Please let it be a joke, Please let it be a joke, Please let it be a joke, Please let it be a joke. Brandy Deffenbaugh says: January 3, 2014 at 1:39 AM Tiffany I am with you I personally served in the military and I am also a military wife but I would never use my husbands rank or think I should get anything for his rank. I have to say this woman needs to pull her head out of her butt and realize that she looks like the piece of crap and as for the marine that did not salute should get an award not punished. As for the womans husband I really hope he is ashamed of her becuase I know my husband would be. Just saying. Christopher Davis says: January 3, 2014 at 1:39 AM This is a joke, right? A parody news story? Andrew McAleer says: January 3, 2014 at 1:39 AM You guys are all dumbasses, this site reports fake news. Just wow… John Lightnin' Lee says: January 3, 2014 at 1:39 AM what a flaming cunt. If she wants to be saluted, then she needs to get commissioned. Jacky Monterroso says: January 3, 2014 at 1:39 AM you have GOT to be kidding me! YOU are not in the military YOUR HUSBAND IS! you didn’t EARN the right to get saluted! join the military AND THEN bitch and complain about how he disrespected you! this is OUTRAGEOUS! wives now n days trying to wear their husbands rank SMH! Michelle Murray says: January 3, 2014 at 1:39 AM This is BULLSHIT! She does nto deserve the salute the officer does…she is JUST a wife…I am retired and a wife and NEVER deserve anything my husband has done this woman needs to be slapped! Joseph Holmes says: January 3, 2014 at 1:39 AM This one might be a joke… but we have all heard the true stories of similar issues. Kaloni Drenckhahn says: January 3, 2014 at 1:39 AM She was probably just having a bad day because the ATM was out of order. Daniel Todd says: January 3, 2014 at 1:39 AM This women needs to take her husbands rank off! SHE DOES NOT RATE A SALUTE!

Vinnie Rod says: January 3, 2014 at 1:39 AM Oh the humanity!”sigh” poor little blue sticker…should have imediatly been scraped and the car confiscated. Michael S. Smith says: January 3, 2014 at 1:39 AM Mike agree, nobody ever said there was truely logic to it. Rick Rivera says: January 3, 2014 at 1:39 AM Unreal! This is just petty and stupid! Just because you’re married to an officer doesn’t deem that you “merit” the respect. True, he is under military obligation to follow protocol, but “emotional distress”. Shut the fuck up! Stupid bitch! Richard Cummings says: January 3, 2014 at 1:39 AM I hate every single Marine wife….every single one! Luke Brown says: January 3, 2014 at 1:39 AM Awesome! I love how pissed all these wives got from hearing about a “wife” that got pissed. Michael S. Smith says: January 3, 2014 at 1:39 AM LOt of people comment that the story is a fake. Iin thirty two years of driving onto Military Bases Seen it first hand the sentries take their job very seriously and their are spouses that act exactly as written. It does occur and some wives use their husbands to try to benefit themselves. It happens Jenn Carter Malinski says: January 3, 2014 at 1:39 AM PLEASE TELL ME THIS IS FAKE! If not, well, pardon my language, but put on some boots, bitch! you want a salute, you earn it! omfg, I am peeing myself here. That poor little blue sticker…. Joe Harvell says: January 3, 2014 at 1:39 AM Good lord some of your are retarded….. Braden R. Lepore says: January 3, 2014 at 1:39 AM You guys know that the duffel blog is fake, like the onion right? Still hilarious though. Michael Mills says: January 3, 2014 at 1:39 AM Favorite new fake blog-site. Carrie Costantini says: January 3, 2014 at 1:39 AM snicker. Luis J Betancourt says: January 3, 2014 at 1:39 AM HAHAHAHAH WTF this is so funny but yeah marine wives get pissed if you don’t salute them, ive worked on gates and I just pretend I’m saluting her but in reality I’m just saluting the sticker because they don’t rate shit. Theresa Gibbons says: January 3, 2014 at 1:39 AM I pitty the day my hubby has to salute to a military wife I will intentianaly walk up to the bitch and fuck her world all up, If u want a rank sign up u self centered egotistical bitch! Jonathan Appling says: January 3, 2014 at 1:39 AM grow up. the military is starting to act like they are a country club. You get all expense paid , free housing (pay for utilities) and think you are due a salute because you know someone. Only Officer’s are due a salute. The only thing that separates an Officer from a Non-Commissioned Officer is a degree. To make Senior Enlisted status, you have to get a civilian degree and have a combat tour. I have seen more military wives in clubs while their husband was on orders elsewhere and in the field training, it made me not want to be married. When I was in the military, I hated being stopped at the gate , because I had my DoD sticker. She truly has too much time on her hands. I agree with Bobby Morel, justified sensibility. Richard OConnor says: January 3, 2014 at 1:39 AM my husband is 2nd lt! Kassi Hiler says: January 3, 2014 at 1:39 AM *Reads. Contemplates.

Cryin and shit…..The Marines have some of the DUMBEST fucking rules and regs I have EVER heard, I SWEAR!

Cryin and shit…..The Marines have some of the DUMBEST fucking rules and regs I have EVER heard, I SWEAR! UNBELIEVABLE sense of entitlement! Anybody who is THAT pressed for attention needs to go in the bathroom and domestic violence themself. Michael Banks says: January 3, 2014 at 1:39 AM Is this a joke? Yes customs and courtesies are nothing to laugh about or ignore, but this is ridiculous. Her husband is the officer, not her. She deserves the respect as a dependent , but she does not deserve to be saluted. The decal does but it’s not a salute to her, it’s directed to her husband. Ronald Riles says: January 3, 2014 at 1:39 AM Is this shit really real? I know its hard to make this shit up but holy shit. Laura Eddings Parry says: January 3, 2014 at 1:39 AM How are people not realizing this is satire. I’m more concerned about people totally missing the joke here than anything else. Even worse? People are actually letting this work them up. Yikes. Cassandra Kardeke says: January 3, 2014 at 1:39 AM LMAO! But it’s not just Marine Officer wives… I’ve known some Army Commanding General wives who demanded salutes… and got them! Christopher Browne says: January 3, 2014 at 1:39 AM Imagine what will happen when her husband makes general, assuming they are still married by then lol. Duke Richards says: January 3, 2014 at 1:39 AM KEELHAUL HIM! Kristian Sorensen says: January 3, 2014 at 1:39 AM In regards to people thinking these stories are real… just let them think it’s real. I mean if people are stupid enough to believe this stuff, do you really think that they are smart enough to know the definition of “satire” anyway? Have some fun with it! Enjoy their ignorance! In this case… defend the rights of the Army wife to have her sticker saluted! Enjoy the warm glow of the mental meltdown which is sure to follow. Coco Leftfielding Baron says: January 3, 2014 at 1:39 AM is she seriously claiming her HUSBAND’S rank? It caused emotional problems because her CAR wasn’t saluted? WTF umm, I don’t remember being told I had to salute a spouses car. James Rogers says: January 3, 2014 at 1:39 AM You got to be kidding. Poor little wfe is emotionaly disturb for a Mareine making a mistake. Travis Brooks says: January 3, 2014 at 1:39 AM You’ve got to be fucking kidding me. That bitch needs a swift salute up her ass. She is not an officer, nothing close to an officer, and probably will never be qualified to join the military. You don’t salute civilians. Fuck her! Rango Infantry says: January 3, 2014 at 1:39 AM That’s the problem with this story. Its not satire, it really is true. Avoid dependants at all costs. Casey Clark says: January 3, 2014 at 1:39 AM This article may be all satire, but it actually happens all the time. Theresa Brewerton says: January 3, 2014 at 1:39 AM Lady you need to grow up! You may have caused this young mans carrier because he forgot to kiss your feet! WOW! David Locke says: January 3, 2014 at 1:39 AM Spouses don’t get salutes at any gate by any branch of the service, once she puts on a uniform and earns the rank and respect that comes with it then she can become “emotionally distressed”. Rick Green says: January 3, 2014 at 1:39 AM Really? Some folks just need to be slapped. Don Harris says: January 3, 2014 at 1:39 AM The problem with this page is that it is just so darned real that you can almost believe the stories. They’ve gotten me before, too. So: THIS IS SATIRE, THE STORY IS FAKE, FAKE, FAKE! I hope that helps. Steve Warda says: January 3, 2014 at 1:39 AM I hope to GOD this is a joke! Seriously emotional distress, tell that to a troop in Afgan away from his family for 3 years about emotional distress! Dallas Lindsey says: January 3, 2014 at 1:39 AM It;s like that in every Branch, the ” WIVES ” push there husbands rank around and demand the same redpect, this is crazy, all he had to was ” Have a nice day Mam, Drive safely “. William R Turner says: January 3, 2014 at 1:39 AM Though it is a breech of protacol, it isn’t the end of the woprld and though the car and decal deserve the recognition she dosent necessarly recieve the same. She should grow up and suk it up like a Marine would. She is not an officer but an officer’s wife, and if introduced in public it would be as Lt and Mrs.Sully. Tell her to gewt over herself she has earned the right to the title “MARINE Wife” not MARINE! Patrick N Nichole Lewis says: January 3, 2014 at 1:39 AM Bitch is just looking for money… I see no reason why this man has to apologize to this dependa-bitch Caleb Nuckels says: January 3, 2014 at 1:39 AM It’s clearly stated in the General Orders to salute officers… not stickers nor dependents. If any one should be apologetic it should be the officer himself for allowing his wife to stir such a commotion over a minuscule issue. We as a military have much bigger fish to fry and shouldn’t be worried about each and very “Mrs. Lieutenant” ‘s immature and unnecessary temper tantrum as they pass throughout the gate. #GROWUP Holly Purcell says: January 3, 2014 at 1:39 AM Just another disgusting example of women trying to wear their husband’s rank! How pathetic! And she demands to be called MRS. Lieutenant? WTH? I HATE to see my friend’s that have “Army Wife” or “Marine Corps Wife” as their position/job on Facebook. It is NOT a job, and if you think it’s so much of a job and not a privledge/joy then maybe you need to rethink your marriage! This is just totally disgusting. Rebecca Zwettler says: January 3, 2014 at 1:39 AM Lol….I can’t believe people don’t realize this is a joke. Michael S. Smith says: January 3, 2014 at 1:39 AM Number one the Lance Corporal was wrong not to render the CAR a salute. Though this women is a military wife and I respect all they give and they give a lot by supporting the home front but nothing gives her the right to call herself Lieutenant. You are the Lieutenants wife the generals wife the major wife but you are not and do not deserve the military rank. The Lance Corporal did right to apoligize it’s done and over move on here are a hell of a lot more important issues. Benjamin Roy Cochran says: January 3, 2014 at 1:39 AM She is not military, she may be married to an officer but she herself is not an officer there fore we who do wear the uniform are not obligated to salute a “civilian” so the simple fact that she feels that she “deserves” to be saluted is wrong. This lady is absolutly retarded and is dumb that she feels that she demands to be saluted. Theotis Almikel Taylor says: January 3, 2014 at 1:39 AM this is why I hate military wives. Victor T. Johnson says: January 3, 2014 at 1:39 AM Screw her dumb ass if she wants a salute take her ass to OCS and whalaa you got it sweetheart, just because your sleeping with a LT dong garner that much respect. Go see a shrink its paid for. Semper Fi Michael Hasbun says: January 3, 2014 at 1:39 AM I know a few like that… LOL… Victor T. Johnson says: January 3, 2014 at 1:39 AM If things haven’t changed the DD Form 2220 ( the decal) only means the vehicle is registered on the installation and that particular one is registered to and officer. I have stood a many gates in my time and have from time to time had this issue come up, even as a watch commander. My response was always the same. You can look at the person driving in the car/sitting in it if they are getting ready to get there salute. However it has always puzzled me why its usually the newly promoted Majors wives who are the dumb asses who do this. If I were that Lcpl’s supervisor I back him to the hilt. Joshua Lawlor says: January 3, 2014 at 1:39 AM This is so not a joke…there was an article about it in the Navy a few years back…ladies…unless you serve, your husbands deserve the respect of being our nations Officers. That’s why we RENDER salutes…not to be confused with SURRENDER…you get the respect of being a woman and a wife…That’s why I don’t salute decals. I salute Officers… Joshua Hawkins says: January 3, 2014 at 1:39 AM see its stupid shit like that giving people a bad taste for the military… if that bitch wanted to be saluted she should have put forth the effort and done the work and signed her ass over to uncle sam instead of just spreading her legs to cash in on someone elses hard work and dedication. instead she pulls shit like this and probably prays for deployments so she can swing from dick to dick while her husband is deployed…. Michael Dwight says: January 3, 2014 at 1:39 AM If true, I really hope the Camp Foster CO had the (expletive deleted) on the next plane out. I wonder if she knows how neatly she just screwed the pitiful remains of her husband’s career, as she reflects poorly on his judgement. Tom Lewis says: January 3, 2014 at 1:39 AM Check this out:http://duffelblog.wpengine.com/2012/05/marine-officers-wife-emotionally-disturbed-after-denied-a-salute/. Shallena Jade Santana says: January 3, 2014 at 1:39 AM Marine wives do nothing to earn a salute…no matter how hard husband work for rank….they act all hoity toity like theyve done something to deserve it from someone who has trained hard…you rstill just a civilian….doesn’t matter who you sleep with at night! Ervin Kelly says: January 3, 2014 at 1:39 AM OHHHHH HELLLLLLLL NOO. Elena Brooks says: January 3, 2014 at 1:39 AM most idiotic thing I have ever heard. the soldier is the one who should be saluted not the spouse and her crying over it is ridiculous. Roxanne Edgecomb says: January 3, 2014 at 1:39 AM Wow! She needs help. Her husband deserves the salute, not her. Jonathan Hayes says: January 3, 2014 at 1:39 AM I see some low scorers on the ASVAB. This is obviously a troll. LOLz Monique Alvarez says: January 3, 2014 at 1:39 AM OMG why do some people believe these? Nothing on this site is real, it is a joke! Loosen up people…it is funny. Sum Ting Wong says: January 3, 2014 at 1:39 AM ITS ALL OBAMAS FAULT! Steve Hill says: January 3, 2014 at 1:39 AM The real entertainment here is the number of commenters who are so naive as to think it’s a true story, or even MAYBE a true story! That’s much funnier than the story itself! Mark Stolarski says: January 3, 2014 at 1:39 AM Bullcrap. And “Mrs. Lieutenant Sully”? I served as a captain and when I went through TBS, we were told that our spouses do NOT carry our ranks. Yes, spouses do go through alot, but they still do not wear the rank. Patty McElhatton Lewis says: January 3, 2014 at 1:39 AM Let me get this straight- most comments state this is a joke? I have never come to this site before but saw a post with a link to this story on the USMC Officers Group on Linked in. Therefore I will hold my comment until I find out if this hideous article speaks the truth. If it is a true story I’d be totally shocked! Holding my tongue until some Intel is done. Semper Fidelis! Rebecca Lopez says: January 3, 2014 at 1:39 AM FK THAT her HUSBAND is the one putting his life on the line not her! HE deserves the salute! Kick Rocks Chic even if the guard had saluted which as protocol dictates he should have, he wasn’t saluting her he was saluting the damn sticker! Get over it chic! Emotional Distress? Someone should send her to the VA where she can meet REAL Marines and Soldiers being treated for PTSD, talk to their families THAT IS EMOTIONAL DISTRESS! Seeking damages over a FKN salute SHE didn’t earn is rediculous. I can understand if the LT was in the car, but he wasn’t. To be sent to NJP and mark his career for failing to render a salute when there are more severe violations committed each day… WOW is all I can say… Monica Good says: January 3, 2014 at 1:39 AM When she puts on the Uniform….She’ll get the Respect. Until then….she can continue to cry like a little spoiled brat. Respect is earned! Not something service members just hand out. Matthew Serrano says: January 3, 2014 at 1:39 AM HA, its like the wives at the FRG meetings who think that because their husband is higher ranking than lower ranking soldiers wives that they have do what she tells them to do. LMAO, military wives…. Henry C. Long says: January 3, 2014 at 1:39 AM HAHAHAHAHa.. poor little blue decal.. hahahahaha Amber Rodriguez says: January 3, 2014 at 1:39 AM Wow seriously that is a disgrace to her husband and what he had worked so hard for Alfredo Hernandez says: January 3, 2014 at 1:39 AM It’s rare that I agree with MPs, but I love the sarcasm coming from the MPs! Hey lady when were you comissioned? what, never? Then why the hell would you rate a friggin salute? Get over yourself! YOU DON’T RATE! Chelsea Israel says: January 3, 2014 at 1:39 AM what a dumb bitch! her husband is the marine not her! he signs that contract her name is nowhere on it I hate stupid marine wives like that they think just cause my husband is a marine then that makes them one. my husband is a ssgt and he is the marine I don’t go parading around demanding respect because of his accomplishments. if she wants that much respect and wants to be saluted then she should join the marines and get her own fucking rank! Raymond Godinez says: January 3, 2014 at 1:39 AM Idiots Scott Dancer says: January 3, 2014 at 1:39 AM This HAS to be s true story….”you can’t put anything on the Internet that isn’t true”………. Anonymous says: January 3, 2014 at 1:39 AM It’s hilarious how all these people think this is real… and how the other wives are trying to overcompensate and show off how “cool” and “with-it” they are by becoming outraged. Ho-lee shit. These people probably quote The Colbert Report in 100% seriousness. I love Marine wives. Kayla Rogers says: January 3, 2014 at 1:39 AM What the FUCK are you serious? I’d cunt punt this chick for being so stupid. Brendon Darling says: January 3, 2014 at 1:39 AM god I love this site. Charlie Emmons says: January 3, 2014 at 1:39 AM How to respond to a Duffelblog post: 1. Don’t respond. 2. Before you get indignant or ask “is this real?”, take a breath and count to ten. 3. Click on the banner and see what other stories are on the website. 4. If you see Gen. Mattis shredding on a triple neck guitar at the RNC, chances are it’s satire. 5. Respond accordingly or refer to #1. Dane Wilson says: January 3, 2014 at 1:39 AM its not real. it cant be. i think if it is real, I’m going to be emotionally disturbed myself. Wayne Redick says: January 3, 2014 at 1:39 AM Where I come from the salute is only rendered to the officer, not the vehicle or spouse. She did nothing to earn a salute. Erin Busic says: January 3, 2014 at 1:39 AM This happened on my base, Navy Officer’s Wife, she wrote into the paper, the Captians pretty much told her were to stick it. It was a hilarious response to read. LOVE the part “I just don’t know how I could have made such an awful mistake. I’d personally like to apologize to the blue decal for any suffering I may have caused.”. Made my day! Ashley Lynch says: January 3, 2014 at 1:39 AM Being a Marine wife myself, I am so mortified that she acted in such “distress.” Yes, our role as Marine wives can be very difficult, but she should only be grateful and honored to ever get a single salute. Instead of acting so selfishly and getting this poor kid reprimanded, she should have just brushed it off. The Marines themselves are the ones that voluntarily lay their lives on the line and deserve the honor of being saluted. Paul Hanson says: January 3, 2014 at 1:39 AM I was stationed at MOTBY in 74 & 75 and this shit happened. Working the Main Gate we had to salute the blue stickers. Some of the wives would call the PM and complain if they weren’t saluted. They thought their husbands rank was also their title. Raziel Zukovski says: January 3, 2014 at 1:39 AM Ok… um a military wife is not the toughest job… what a load of shit. and youre not entitiled to a goddamnn thing just cause you are married to rank. if that was my wife i would be so embarrassed Natalia Rose Jepsen says: January 3, 2014 at 1:39 AM really? really? REALLY? Bitch please! Oh man I feel sorry for her husband…. Mathew Wilson says: January 3, 2014 at 1:39 AM lol, even though this is a joke, it really happens, and it is funny because in the army I have with my own eyes seen Officers Wives demanding soldiers to do stuff like get stuff out of their car, clean up offices and other stupid shit. Literally DEMANDING, not asking politely but rudely telling soldiers Go do this Go do that, my husband is your commander! Jeff Lee says: January 3, 2014 at 1:39 AM it’s a joke retards. Angie Campbell says: January 3, 2014 at 1:39 AM People, “duffleblog” is to the military as “the onion” is to civilian. It’s a joke making fun of crap that’s not real! Though many of you have seen spouses try crap like this… it would NEVER go further than the spouse looking like an ass. HAHA Duffleblog comments… My new entertainment. ;o) Christine ItzWawa Walters says: January 3, 2014 at 1:39 AM Suck it the fuck up lady! youre not in the military…your husband is. I’m not going to salute you..you are a cilivian..you have no right to get upset…you need to find something to do with yo damn time. Jessica McClung says: January 3, 2014 at 1:39 AM Wtf!!! What a dumb bitch Courtney Harsey Ray says: January 3, 2014 at 1:39 AM Is this really True? OMG No Marine should have to Salute a damn Officer’s wife… SHE DID NOT EARN THAT RANK! I would love love to share words with this woman….emotional Distress? Really? How bout she go through a deployment or something terrible besides getting her panties in a wad over something so childish… women like this should not even be related to military they expect everything for NOTHING they have done! UGHHH annoying! Nate Twigg says: January 3, 2014 at 1:39 AM Go to boot camp…I love my military spouse but the rank does not transfer to family members. Michelle Meyer says: January 3, 2014 at 1:39 AM It is people like that that give military spouses a bad name. I am proud to be a Chief’s spouse but I didn’t earn his anchors, he did. We need to support each other and respect those that do wear the uniform no matter what thier rank is. Ashli LovingKayleigh Johnson says: January 3, 2014 at 1:39 AM ok…UNLESS YOU HAVE WENT TO BASIC TRAINING AND A.I.T…YOU DOn’t DESERVE THE RIGHT TO BE SAULTED! YOU DIDn’t DO ANYTHING BUT MARRY SOMEONE IN THE MILITARY SO WHAT MAKES YOU THINK YOU DESERVE THAT RIGHT FOR A SOLDIER TO SALUTE YOU. IM SO SICK AND TIERD OF ALL THE MILITARY WIVES SAYING BEING IN THE MILITARY IS TOUGH BUT BEING A SPOUSE OF SOMEONE IN THE MILITARY IS TOUGHER….GROW THE HELL UP! YOU DOn’t HAVE TO DO N.O.N.E OF THE THINGS WE HAVE TO DO! YOU DOn’t HAVE TO DEPLOY AND BE IN HARMS WAY EVERYDAY! SO TAKE YOUR FREE RIDE AND SHUT UP! Marie Heisse says: January 3, 2014 at 1:39 AM Can you say whiney bitch much? Mike Vedral says: January 3, 2014 at 1:39 AM None of this is true Peter Marshall Bland says: January 3, 2014 at 1:39 AM I’m this actually happens. It happens all the time. SOP for gate guards and MPs says that any car with a blue sticker needs to receive a hand salute on Okinawa. David M Peters says: January 3, 2014 at 1:39 AM This is satire, completely fictional for a good laugh. Calm your beards Desiree Salgado says: January 3, 2014 at 1:39 AM I’ll salute her with a slap across the face Stephen Yoda says: January 3, 2014 at 1:39 AM lol. Josh Totherow says: January 3, 2014 at 1:39 AM She doesnt rate a salute and should be punched in the face Shannon DeHaven Jacobs says: January 3, 2014 at 1:39 AM Yes, people this is a joke. This whole site is based on parody. Jason Kirkendall says: January 3, 2014 at 1:39 AM lol, wow that lady should just get over herself. sounds like she’s still in middle school mindset. Jake Wright says: January 3, 2014 at 1:39 AM As a 7 year MP I can tell you I haven’t seen such an accurate depiction of the attitude of some Officer’s wives. Nailed it!!! Richard Montenegro says: January 3, 2014 at 1:39 AM I recently came across this article and I might take some heat for what I’m going to say but this is the Gunny speaking and I have always called them as I see them. This tantrum from this Marine Officers wife is just out right spoil and ridiculous! Excuse me Michelle Sully suffered severe emotional distress. Are you kidding me? In the event this Marine Officer LT Sully can not get his wife under control then better for his Military career not to go to far in the Marine Corps. We don’t need that kind of spoiled from the wife’s of Nco’s Staff Nco’s or Officers. Yes respect and all our traditions is something that I up hold. Marines are human and if this Lance Corporal made a simple mistake let’s give him a break and move one. I can’t believe that Staff Sergeant Doney consider non judicial punishment at the Battalion level. I hope this reach the desk of a good and level headed field grade officer who called the Sergeant Major and said throw this bogus charge in the trash can. OOOOHHHHRRRRAAAAHHH! Then call the officer to say in private” LT Sully get your wife under control” My Marines have enough to worry about they don’t need your wife running around base spoil and making trouble. I served under many Field Grade Officers and never was I a bit hesitant to give my honest opinion about this issues and for this matter my judgement was always consider and highly respected. I have high respect for the many officers I served with as I look back no Officer I served would have process something so silly. Stephan Hall says: January 3, 2014 at 1:39 AM I hope Mrs. Lieutenant Sully gets to read this comment. You have no rights as a Marine Corps Wife, you have privileges based on your husband being on active duty. Get over it, and stop wearing your husband rank on your sleeve, or your going to find him in deep shit. Robert Fleming says: January 3, 2014 at 1:39 AM Brandon Michael Metz says: January 3, 2014 at 1:39 AM I’m guessing this is like The Onion of the military Chris Mathern says: January 3, 2014 at 1:39 AM what the fuck? Liz Fischer says: January 3, 2014 at 1:39 AM Everybody calm down! This website is “the onion” of the military! OF COURSE IT IS A JOKE! Oh my word! Josh Jones says: January 3, 2014 at 1:39 AM One can only assume this is satire. Beverly Rush says: January 3, 2014 at 1:39 AM These comments are so funny sometimes Chris Mathern says: January 3, 2014 at 1:39 AM that skyline deserves a better driver… sad Barbara Elizabeth Brown Johnson says: January 3, 2014 at 1:39 AM Everything from “The Duffel Blog” is a JOKE, folks. “The Duffel Blog” is the military-themed equivalent of “The Onion!” LOL! How do you see the posts without knowing that? This is so hysterical — the comments I mean. Alix Murillo says: January 3, 2014 at 1:39 AM I don’t care that this is satire; people who have their panties in a bunch because others are commenting on how horrific it is, just need to be quiet and let others have their say because this does happen in real life and a lot of military wives, especially officers’ wives think they’re entitled to EVERYTHING UNDER THE SUN. It’s very annoying that they demand respect when they believe they deserve it. Stop being a bitch and you won’t be hated. Randy Hawthorne says: January 3, 2014 at 1:39 AM But I also believe this is fake! Barbara Elizabeth Brown Johnson says: January 3, 2014 at 1:39 AM Okay, I let my OCD take over and did more than my part at educating the readers of this site… hehehe! Hopefully, at least this bunch of readers will know from now on that The Duffel Blog is a satire site and that means that the characters in the satire do not exist and the story is not real regardless of any similarity to any other stories, true or not, heard, witnessed or read anywhere else. hehehehe. Laugh folks! It’s good for the heart and will keep some of the commenters on here out of jail and the grave at least on the short-term. Benjamin Wisenbaugh says: January 3, 2014 at 1:39 AM You are idiots. It never ceases to amaze me as to how many people don’t comprehend this is a satire site. Randy Hawthorne says: January 3, 2014 at 1:39 AM She is a Civ, And HAS NO RANK! FPCON Normal – No longer exist. Blue Decals don’t get the salute, its the officer. She is a cunt that wants attention. (Thank you for you devoted service through your husbands shadows, But you give no orders to the military!) Michelle Sully attention Whore! (I am sure she did not get the salute every time.) Something must be wrong with the family. So she had to take it out on a poor E-2. If I got that wrong with LC sorry. I say sorry to him, and his Supervisor is a POS! (I am SSgt Hawthorne Randy B., and I Approve this message). John Kornfeind says: January 3, 2014 at 1:39 AM I love how people think this shit is real LMAO. Wendy Strand says: January 3, 2014 at 1:39 AM Tiffany Miller above, is JUST AS OVERLY Dramatic in her answer as the Lt’s wife was about the whole situation! as the Wife of a Retired Officer who is a Mustang (also former enlisted)…””Mrs. Michelle Sully”” as SHE IS TO BE ADDRESSED PROPERLY! needs some counseling in the fact that SHE does not rate the salute NOR the rank of her husband in Her title… the sticker representing Her HUSBAND’s rank does and if they miss it they miss it…. most bases have Civilian Police officers now and THEY TOO DON’T Salute MOST OF THE TIME! Lt. SULLY quite obviously has a SPOILED BRAT on his hands and He’s better GET HER STRAIGHT or it WILL Cost him a rank eventually and maybe even His Career! Amanda Quinlivan says: January 3, 2014 at 1:39 AM I can not stand bitches like her!!! Emotional distress my ass!!! Paul Quintana says: January 3, 2014 at 1:39 AM There was this crazy thug ass captain Cpt Taylor back when I was on Schwab, That would turn his car around and remind you that that blue sticker meant he was an officer, and that you need to salute him. Only if you failed to salute him; you could be just walking or in pt gear, this dude demanded his salutes. lol Michelle Mitchell Weinsaft says: January 3, 2014 at 1:39 AM Even if this isn’t true, wives do act like this! I see it all the time. Michelle Mitchell Weinsaft says: January 3, 2014 at 1:39 AM I love how wives wear their husband’s ranks. Give me a break. I hope someone does slap me if I act like that. I would of laughed in her face. Tracy Moore says: January 3, 2014 at 1:39 AM I say promote em all. Some of them really think they share the husbands rank. la la la looooooserrrrr! Tracy Moore says: January 3, 2014 at 1:39 AM I say frock em all dammit. They deserve to yell at military personnel too! It ain’t no fun unless the spouse has some. “Do you know who my husband is”? I love hearing that. It lets you know your still alive. Nolan Bryant says: January 3, 2014 at 1:39 AM I can’t post here what my heart tells me to post……. it would be censored. Sounds like “Mrs. Lt” needs to receive some counseling from “Mr. Lt” to address the need for her to grow up. Unbelieveable! I think “Mr. Lt” now owes LCpl Hansen an apology for having married someone that is apparently mentally challenged. Kimberley West says: January 3, 2014 at 1:39 AM This must be a joke. If it’s not, the Corps have been castrated by this bimbo, wife. I have a one finger salute for her. Jose Garcia says: January 3, 2014 at 1:39 AM I have marine wives they think that because their husband are officers or high ranking enlisted they deserve more, but they can all go to hell. Victor Ivo says: January 3, 2014 at 1:39 AM hilarious. I love this stuff. Nate Woodard says: January 3, 2014 at 1:39 AM Are all you people retarded? Or just too lazy to read past the first sentence? Here, let me help you guys out here: sat·ire [sat-ahyuhr] Show IPA. noun 1. the use of irony, sarcasm, ridicule, or the like, in exposing, denouncing, or deriding vice, folly, etc. 2. a literary composition, in verse or prose, in which human folly and vice are held up to scorn, derision, or ridicule. 3. a literary genre comprising such compositions. Jennifer Hagemeier-Robles says: January 3, 2014 at 1:39 AM WOW – Presume she’s a trophy wife… Donald Albers says: January 3, 2014 at 1:39 AM Any that has been in Oki for the past 10 yrs, knows this article is a fraud. Marina U. Cosgrove says: January 3, 2014 at 1:39 AM This poor woman should get a life. Jacob York says: January 3, 2014 at 1:39 AM How do pople make it to duffelblog without knowing its a spoof site? lol wtf. Brigham Bush says: January 3, 2014 at 1:39 AM lmao. If this was real, I would have told her Bros Before Hoes. Of course its not real so people. Don’t take this site seriously. Jimmy Magoo says: January 3, 2014 at 1:39 AM I am a Marine e-3 and I drive a extra large truck with huge tires and shiny rims…I never go off road and I live in the barracks…i drive maybe 2 miles a day….the truck reminds of a Hummer and I feel superior to anybody who does not have one….my insurance is high as hell and when I get out I will have to sell it to pay for my ticket home… Carlos Fernando Rodriguez says: January 3, 2014 at 1:39 AM Hahahaha this is golden! Roger Hughes says: January 3, 2014 at 1:39 AM This has got to be a joke, when I was reading it I was just waiting for the punch line. The BUTTERBAR need to put his women in check. James Herring says: January 3, 2014 at 1:39 AM Recommend she takes 50 Xanax pills per day followed by 50 OxyContin per hour. This will cure her disturbance. John Smith says: January 3, 2014 at 1:39 AM I hope this isn’t true, this bitch needs to be told that she doesn’t wear her husbands rank. She wouldn’t have gotten shit from me but a move your ass your blocking traffic fuckin dependacow Kevin Ruhl says: January 3, 2014 at 1:39 AM Put a sock in it Lady and move on. Gene Jenkins says: January 3, 2014 at 1:39 AM Wow this is B S now just give the woman a salaute and let it go. I read the last sentence and she wants WHAT? is currently seeking unspecified DAMAGES against Lance Corporal Hansen for the emotional distress experienced. Not only get the salate but now money? Next time she fails to dim lights upon entry to gate sound like a summons is needed.. Semper -Fi Marines 1973-1977. Kyle Martin says: January 3, 2014 at 1:39 AM This is what the corps has come to so glad I’m not in anymore fuck you military. Jonathan Nguyen says: January 3, 2014 at 1:39 AM Can’t call it satire anymore… people actually do this. I’m working the gate this week and it’s only day 3 in and I’ve been yelled out for it already. Even spouses of retired officers feel like they are entitled to something. I’ve had SPOUSES RETURN SALUTES directed towards their husband! Bobby Morel says: January 3, 2014 at 1:39 AM Something like this happened while I was stationed at the Ventura County Naval Base. A military spouse wrote to the Base CO in the base newspaper complaining that the master at arms kept failing to salute her vehicle when her husband was not present. The CO wrote back asking her to stand outside her house ten hours a day for three days, looking at every car that passed by, and see if she’d still remember to always check the decals. John Mayer says: January 3, 2014 at 1:39 AM After reading several whom think this is satire, well it isn’t. Our comm sq did a PA set up at the officer’s club (early 90’s) where all the officers spouses came. The speaker came out (major) and asked them to sit according to rank. After the commotion settled down he asked to see their military iid cards. Not one had an officer card and the major went on to say they are dependents of an officer and do not have the privileges of an officer. They were very upset especially the generals’ (yes, plural) wives! Jeremy Wheeler says: January 3, 2014 at 1:39 AM This satire isn’t far from some of the incidents we deal with on a daily basis. No love for the MP’s! Brad Lindsay says: January 3, 2014 at 1:39 AM My old Ft. Carson, MP buddies will appreciate this one. Why are you stopping on a green light at the gate lady? Jes Starnes says: January 3, 2014 at 1:39 AM ROFLMAO! I love a writer with a great sense of humor! Scout Six says: January 3, 2014 at 1:39 AM There are no blue, or red base registration stickers here on Okinawa. So rest easy, kittens. John Mayer says: January 3, 2014 at 1:39 AM I retired from the military, since when do civilians deserve a salute? I have never rendered a salute to a vehicle unless it had an officer in it! You never salute a dependent whose borrowing an officers car, period. Lastly, dependents whom their spouse is an officer do NOT get the officer’s parking space. They are DEPENDENTS not officers! My suggestion is if you want a salute join the military! Oceanna Beach says: January 3, 2014 at 1:39 AM As spouse Married to a Marine. This disgusts me, she is an insult to all us other spouses! Wtf, really? If all went right I sure hope HIS command got in his face telling them he needs to CONTROL his wife! Travis Rodgers says: January 3, 2014 at 1:39 AM Shut up, you whiny bitch. Respect is earned, not given. The audacity in your self entitlement is just bat shit… Anonymous says: January 3, 2014 at 1:39 AM Holding my sides… It’s funny coz it’s so true…. Lou Windsor says: January 3, 2014 at 1:39 AM You guys just do this so you can read the comments after you post it…right? Great work. Again. Dee M. Swopes says: January 3, 2014 at 1:39 AM This whole site is satire. Calm down. Timothy Phillips says: January 3, 2014 at 1:39 AM That woman would have hated me when I was a young Marine. When I came back from Vietnam in 1968 I would not salute any officer that I knew not to have served as grunt in Vietnam. I got away with it until I ran into the a Woman Marine Colonel at Camp Pendleton in 1970. I walked out of the PX one afternoon and she was walking towards me. I looked the other way as I approached her and did not render her a salute. She yelled at me to stop and then asked me why I had not saluted her. I told her that she did not serve in combat and that I did not salute any officer unless he or she served in combat. She went totally berserk and began yelling all sorts of stuff at me. Another Marine walked by and he did not salute either. She went off on him and I made my escape. After some thinking on my part, I decided that if I was going to make a career out of the Corps I would have to start saluting all officers period, even if I detested them. Elliott Adams says: January 3, 2014 at 1:39 AM not only are marines the biggest assholes in our military, but their wives are the biggest bitches. who would have thought that bitches marry assholes. Cyril Kulteshev says: January 3, 2014 at 1:39 AM And lo, did many angels get their wings upon that day, for a horde of dumbasses thought a TDB story was real… Shawn Ingraham says: January 3, 2014 at 1:39 AM its not true u idiots Angelo Gonzalez says: January 3, 2014 at 1:39 AM Another dumb person. Nancy Carson says: January 3, 2014 at 1:39 AM Sounds like she was a little emotionally disturbed long before she didn’t get the salute. Grow up lady, your husband deserves the salute, not you. John Sehler says: January 3, 2014 at 1:39 AM Is the Blue decal going to sue Hanson for emotional damages? Bill Goss says: January 3, 2014 at 1:39 AM TOTAL Bullshit. Mrs Sully is a civilian, PERIOD. He husband is the looie,,, NOT her. Elissa Garcia Kartune says: January 3, 2014 at 1:39 AM This is a joke right?! If she is sooooo distraught she shouldn’t be a Marine wife….marine wives don’t show such emotion over something so petty! Shawn Ingraham says: January 3, 2014 at 1:39 AM Hahahaha Erlinda Jean says: January 3, 2014 at 1:39 AM Really.? All I can say someone will be needing some serious counseling…. Tiffany Miller says: January 3, 2014 at 1:39 AM Seriously? If this is true, I would like to bitch slap this idiot. She didn’t do shit to earn that rank, she didn’t sign any contract to the us govt. She holds no special rights. Anything the militray offers her, is simply a courtesy. My god, the sense of entitlement from people is quite astounding. forcedmayhem says: November 2, 2012 at 8:00 PM You got to be freaking kidding no bitch deserves respect her husband gets that fucking honor not some dumb bitch that thinks she rates something. That Lance Corporal was right the sticker gets it not her lmao Lisa says: November 1, 2012 at 3:59 PM Ok first of all, her husband needs to be kicked out for alloweing her to nehave that badly, second of all I know several women who currelty think their wear their husbands rank and it has gotten to the point where the soldier is aiding and allowing the wife acces to information and locations that violate opsec, i also know of one other lady who wears several soldiers ranks who works her way through installation hmmmmm sounds like a threat to me! Yeah I am a sgt wife but i did not go through basic ait, and all the crap that these soldiers go through, there is a very simple solution, get the f off the installation! this problem has been getting worse since they let pansies in the service, and going privatized has made everything worse, the installation commands have lost control over what they are allowed to do. so it is simple either she gets off post or they both go out of the military. RED says: October 16, 2012 at 8:23 AM You guys are a bunch of retards, this is a joke, satire, he would not be punished for such an act, there is no violation dip steaks. Beard0311 says: September 24, 2012 at 8:20 PM Oh man when I was with MP Co (FAP from 3/3 FORCE LIMA)on K-Bay I seriously pissed off a Captains wife that was craving that salute. We were under order to check ID’s 24/7 and the Major said if no officer is aboard do not salute, he was a no nonsense type mofo. I was at the back gate going out to Kailua…and she pulled up to come on base and I checked ID and waved her through and she sat there staring at me like a goat. I waved her though again and she copped an attitude that she rated a salute. I told her to GTFO of the gate area, so she PULLED OVER and got out of her car and came over and asked me if I knew who her husband was and I was like “No but I bet your going to tell me!” and she got even more PISSED and THEN threatened my hallowed rank of Lance Corporal, because her husband was a Captain. To this day, I feel sorry for that Captain. Sir, you really married the wrong woman. I think he was a Mustang because I never heard a damn thing about it afterwards. Hopefully he told her to shut up, and never do that again. She was a heartbeat away from an OC Spray makeover. Nam Marine says: September 23, 2012 at 11:38 AM Her husband should slap the smile off of her face! She rates…….NOTHING! …What a bimbo! ZxuserBob says: September 21, 2012 at 3:40 PM Years ago we pulled guard duty at pearl. Our solution to this be it a joke or real was a smart left hand salute. No one ever caught us!! Marie says: September 17, 2012 at 7:30 PM SPARE ME. !! You did a dishonor to your husband by acting like such a fool. Retired Patriot says: September 17, 2012 at 2:24 AM This woman needs to get over herself and get a life! The best compliment my wife ever got from the wife of an enlisted member we attended church with during my years as a military officer: “Wow, you don’t seem like an officers’ wife!” DXBDavie says: September 16, 2012 at 8:07 AM To the author of this story, you Sir, are one hell of writer, but unfortunately, it’s the comments that are making me laugh harder. To the guys who ‘get it’, keep laughing at the guys who don’t…because we’ll only run out of breath trying to help them ‘get it’. Keep it up Duffel Blog! Nona Goldstein says: September 15, 2012 at 1:40 PM I was an MP gate guard, our duty officer told us we didn’t need to salute women in civilian clothes at the gate, driving cars with Blue stickers. I recognized the Colonel Brigade Commander, as she drove up in a very spring like outfit, took a lot of control not to salute her. I follow orders. She screeched to a stop, I saluted and expained, that I was going to but….. duty Captian…said “Nooooo”, her face turned red, and I told her he was at the Provost Marshall Office, right now. He got his visit. Angel Burrell says: September 13, 2012 at 2:58 PM @Cpt 2003 I completely agree with you about certain spouses deseve respect based upon their conduct and not just the rank of their husband. You described it perfectly and I sir would happily salute you anyday thank you for you service! CPT 2003 says: September 13, 2012 at 3:34 PM back at you Ms. B – most welcome and greetings to your Officer of Marines . . . Susie says: October 19, 2012 at 10:36 PM Jeez, why don’t you two get a room! Angel Burrell says: September 13, 2012 at 11:11 AM Okay, satire or not we all can agree that there are actually wives like this in the Military and not just in the Marine Corps; with that being said as a Marine wife, I feel like wives do deserve some sort of aknoweledgement clearly not to the ridiculous degree of being saluted, or getting special military treatment that would normally be given to her husband but the aknowlegment that as a wife she is important for what she goes through to be married to a man in the military because, its not something every woman can do its actually quite difficult; is this woman an extreme YES!!! but for people to come on here and say general statements about military wives is unfair to the majority of wives like myself, who can support their husbands but doesn’t let it define their identity. CPT 2003 says: September 13, 2012 at 11:41 AM and you know Ms. Burrell, I was a ‘brat’ before I was an enlisted Marine, a cadet, and an Officer of the Army, so I write from a certain ‘level’ of experience . . . I recall when my mother wore long dresses or skirts to the commissary (and wore gloves), and attended (and over time hosted) coffees and teas for the wives of Company and Field officers (in the OWC) depending on my father’s postion and grade. I also recall the conversations (invariably overheard) about wives who ‘did not play Army’ and various banter about fraternizing with the wives of the ‘other ranks’ (aka enlisted) – who – by the way – lived on the other side of post (pick the post, pretty much the same everywhere). Incidentally, this mentality also translates to dependent schools on installation where relative status is based first upon “what housing division you live in” (Cole Park versus Werner Park versus Turner Loop – at Campbell) and then what is your father’s rank, and then what does your father do. So – YES – this satirical stuff goes on – but from a Marine perspective (and Marines have 11 General Orders) it is #10 that applies here – salute all officers, colors, and standards not cased – that is why the blue decal gets a salute. To the degree that a spouse conducts FRGs and supports the troops, therein is the measure of utility evaluated – the more helpful and available – the more respected – the reverse is also true. There are also spouses that are completely without worth (and that applies both to those who wear rank and those who don’t) – that forget marital obligations, etc. the moment the member goes downrange – too many of those too – but that is another lesson . . . SIlverKnight 37 OUT LiLi says: September 4, 2012 at 12:56 PM Some of the best laughs I get are reading the indignant posts of those who think this is real! SO don’t clue them in that it is satire, let them go on. SOMEDAY they will realize what it is about, and they will feel very embarassed. Michael Young says: September 4, 2012 at 10:45 AM I absolutely love this site, and am never, ever visiting The Onion again. That would be treasonous, I tells ya. Just wanted to say that I have spent the last three days here, reading every article I could find, and have enjoyed the experience enourmously. The comments that usually immediately follow said articles are worth reading every time, although…… I am finding it perfectly appalling how often presumably educated adults need to be reminded that what they are reading is SATIRE, it is a JOKE, it is NOT REAL, and they need to calm…the…fuck…down. God Bless America. God Bless Her military. Thankyou for this opportunity. Michael D Young Ontario, CANADA Susie says: September 3, 2012 at 8:40 PM As an officer wife, it is as much our duty as our husband’s to enforce the regulations. If the enlisted troops decide that they can ignore the rank of the car and not salute it, then I feel that I am within my rights to make them show me the respect that I am due. The rendering of a salute to an officer’s wife (and driving age children) is the correct thing to do according to the UCMJ and whatever punishment the enlisted gate guard gets will send a signal to all others to respect their superiors. Gil says: September 7, 2012 at 1:26 AM LOL! Nicole says: September 9, 2012 at 8:31 PM Let me just say this. You are utterly retarded. You do not wear your husbands rank and you most certainly do not have the right to make anyone show you respect. I would rather pull through a gate and be greeted with a hi how are you then create a huge ole scene because of a sticker. The only time that you ever have a right to show rank is if you earned that rank. Marrying someone does not entitle you to that rank/ It is officer’s wives like you that make a huge gap between enlisted and officer’s wives. We are not a special breed or anything. We all just happened to fall in love with a man that is in the military. so let me repeat this again YOU DO NOT WEAR HIS RANK , YOU ARE NOT SUPERIOR TO ENLISTED. The only thing that honestly designates the difference between an officer and enlisted is schooling. So do us all a favor since you think are that high and mighty because of “your husbands” rank . try working the gate or another enlisted job instead of sitting on your pedestal. Someone needs to bring you back from cloud 9. If we all wore our husbands rank then we all might as well go sign a contract with the military too. so do us all a favor and remember one thing while you demand respect from the enlisted. If it werent for the enlisted taking on the jobs that they do it be your husband doing the grunt work. So get the hell over yourself! Susie says: September 16, 2012 at 10:37 PM Nicole, Actually, honey, I do wear my husband’s rank. It matches my earrings perfectly. I suggest that you get with the program if you want to see your husband succeed in this woman’s Marine Corps! crazyc says: October 11, 2012 at 1:00 AM God you are psychotic. Nam Marine says: September 23, 2012 at 11:49 AM YOU are superior to no one BIMBO! Your husband is the Officer…..NOT YOU ! Susie says: October 1, 2012 at 8:50 PM Mr. Nam, As I’ve told many a gate guard – and I’ll tell you: This is going to be a one-way conversation… I suggest that you lose the “all capital letters” attitude or you’ll be answering to a charge sheet for insubordination. crazyc says: October 11, 2012 at 12:58 AM are you serious right now? I have a question for you. Are you serving in the military and are you an officer? if you said no to that question then soldiers do not need to salute you. you are not their superior if you married a man who is their superior. their power is not automatically yours. Stop being such an entitled beotch Susie says: October 19, 2012 at 10:31 PM Crazyc, the answer to your two questions is “no” and “no”. Now, I suggest you take some notes here… First, since you mentioned “soldiers” I must assume you are in the Army and don’t know any better, but in the Marine Corps a husband and his wife make up a command team. I went to the wives Commander’s Course and upon graduation, we were fully empowered with the authority of our husband’s command status. Secondly, you are right that the power is not “automatically” mine, I worked for it -and I worked for it damned hard! So, if your GPS ever breaks down on your way to Ft Bragg and you find yourself lost aboard Camp Lejeune, you’d better be ready with a snappy salute for this Marines wife in her Dodge Caravan or you won’t like what happens next! wkars says: October 24, 2012 at 10:31 AM Very nice Mrs. S. This is hilarious. Keep up the good work! Jen says: August 30, 2012 at 5:52 PM WOW…LoL, I guess someone likes to wear her hubby’s rank! Does this chick also need someone to hold her hands everyday he is on deployment too? Boo…hoo! As a Marine wife myself, I am ashamed of women like this…you missy did NOT earn his rank, he did all himself. crazyc says: October 11, 2012 at 1:01 AM look at the chick below your comment. insane! Nat C says: August 23, 2012 at 9:31 AM I honestly don’t know what makes me laugh more……..reading these “articles” or reading the comments posted below it. All I can say is…….Duffle Blog, you guys are great! Keep up the good work! 4 Merit. Masts During Career says: August 22, 2012 at 3:52 PM The stupid thing is to ever salute a decal. I instructed my Marines to not follow dumb orders. The new thing is to put little animal decals on as well. Last week, I saw what looked like a baby eagle beside a blue decal.. That night, I added a batman symbol to my windshield. Capt B says: August 22, 2012 at 6:51 AM I just did a quick check of “global” and non of the names come up…nothing even close. Sadly the story is either BS or the names where changed. As mush as I hate to say it but before I retired (I am a Mustang) there were senior enlisted wives that believed they had rank as well. CPT 2003 says: August 22, 2012 at 7:28 AM Capt B – dude – this is a satire site – obviously the names won’t show up in global – if there is any (and this is highly doubtful) relationship to actual soldiers, sailors, marines, airmen, etc., the names would be changed to protect the innocent (or guilty). That written – I too am a mustang and can state categorically that former enlisted Marines make the very finest Army officers (I digress), but I do seem to recall one day on liberty in the parking lot of the mall in Pensacola, when as a non-rate in Dress Blue Deltas I got publicly chewed out by (what turned out to be) a Naval officer (in civilian clothes) because I failed to properly greet his car’s decal as it passed me – it was clearly my fault as I should have been paying close attention to the car as it approached me from behind and I should have stopped and turned around so that I could have more enthusiastically greeted this young officer (knowing that it is my duty as a Marine so “salute all officers, colors, and standards not cased) . . . I bring this up because it happens – I was not the first Marine to miss a decal, and I wont be the last. In fact, I was not saluted by a Marine on the gate at MCAS Yuma (even though my vehicle prominently displayed its blue decal (from US Army Yuma Proving Ground) – I was a bit suprised – so I stopped and asked the young Marine about his 10th general order and he (even more amazingly) gave me a flip reply about not saluting civilians – he was a bit more respectful (and appologetic) after I displayed my ID Card. Kids will be kids – it happens – I can say though for a fact that rolling through a gate on an AFB (guarded by an airman and not a civilian) I have always recieved a sharp salute and proper greeting of the day – must have something to do with the ‘100% ID check . . .” Semper Fidelis! Justin Case says: August 16, 2012 at 7:41 PM This crap is for real… we get toasted in Brief at least once a week because some numbnuts forgot/missed/didnt/couldnt or whatever reason salute some dependopatumus O-Wife/Daughter/Son. THE MERC says: August 16, 2012 at 5:36 PM I like that General for setting the women straight !!!………The LT. should put his Jack Ass wife over his knee and give a good spanking. I don’t care if her husband is a General or an Admiral, she’s a damn civilian !!!…. Who the hell does she think she is ? Charlie brown says: August 16, 2012 at 10:24 AM I think the comments for this story were funnier then the made up story, because the comments were real! Cant_tell_you says: August 14, 2012 at 9:03 PM It would be funnier still if it wasn’t also true. An Officer Spouse Club-type initiative at MCAS CP a few years back was to have members wear their spouse’s rank insignia. This was quickly quashed. But to this day, go to any of these clubs and see if the Generals’ and Colonels’ (and the occasional Major) wives don’t actually think they have the same rank, and don’t fear having their spouse do their bidding and pull actual rank when things don’t go their way. I could name a specific Off Spouse Org, but doing so would likely get me skylined! James Harris says: August 7, 2012 at 9:08 PM Has it occurred to anybody that this story may be a “spoof?” Is it? Sailor says: August 7, 2012 at 2:51 PM I hope they have to maintain the same grooming standards. So many wives would have to start trimming their back hair and unibrows. James Harris says: August 7, 2012 at 9:11 PM OK — I’m BRAND NEW to the blog — and I get it now — it’s all spoof!! Thanks!!

Hooper Zuppke says: July 27, 2012 at 9:31 AM I learned of that “officer’s wife” speech from my wife, who was told that while at a support group for. She and others had no problem w/that…I was lucky though, looking back, that she learned of the protocol from a women…and not me…Made life so much bearable. LOL Whenever I remarry, I mention that bit of info to my new wife so that she doesn’t feel hurt when @ the post for anything…LOL USMCwife says: July 26, 2012 at 11:48 AM I didn’t even read this!! All I have to say is get over yourself and stop wearing your husbands rank!!! He earned it not you!! Ridiculous!!! Just like you should go ahead of lines at the commissary and exchange. Lol uh yeah no, men and women in uniform earned that right!! Aaron King-Figgs says: July 24, 2012 at 2:10 PM This lady is joking right?i know she is,somewhere hidden deep down there is a funny ass punchline, like gotcha or justkidding, right?…Right?…okay maybe not.. RipWaxmaster says: July 24, 2012 at 5:29 PM .__. Rex says: July 23, 2012 at 2:19 AM when I was security and standing gate guard at NAS Whidbey Island, I would wait till the vehicle pulled up, the driver showed me his or her ID and if it was an officer THEN I would salute them.. I would not, and was not expected to salute a sticker. (I did get a little pucker factor when an older gentleman and his wife pulled up, with a blue sticker and 4 silver stars below it) he was a retired US Coast Guard Admiral.. Sailor says: August 7, 2012 at 12:38 PM Retired CG Admiral? That’s years of proud puddle wading and cutter commanding. I bet he was once splashed when they saw rough water just off the coast. Probably took minutes to get back to the dock to. That’s one salty old dog there. Think he ever lost sight of the shoreline?

Then you end up giving half of your retirement and up tp 50% of any VA disablity after the divorce because state judges will not deny a spouce any part of retirment for any reason..

KedR says: July 16, 2012 at 4:33 AM Send the wife in with the Marine in the War zone. Melissa says: July 6, 2012 at 5:00 PM This wife should actually sign up for the military then demand respect. If this kid is punish for her arrogance I am writing the white house and demanding her husband be dishonorable discharged for his stupidity. He hasn’t even been in the military long enough as a LT to earn respect much less his stupid wife. Tell her to go get job. When her husband makes 06 or above, at that time we will look at her as earning some respect. What a joke. Mhouse says: July 6, 2012 at 3:26 PM You have got to be kidding me. This is a joke right? Who cares if she is an officer’s wife. She isn’t in the military, she doesn’t deserve to be saluted. Pathetic. Katie says: July 6, 2012 at 8:51 AM This bitch for real? Seriously? Fucking idiot. She isn’t entitled to SHIT! She married the MAN, she didn’t join the corps. Dumb cunt. David Brawner says: July 5, 2012 at 7:14 PM “Mrs LT” needd to get a grip. If that is all it takes to cause emotional distress she isn’t going to last long as a Marine’s. It is her husband who has earned the salute, not her. It is the car with the sticker being saluted, not her. CWO-3 USMC, Ret. DMB says: June 1, 2012 at 6:11 PM As the newlywed wife of a USMC Major, I thought your post was very funny and appreciate the parody. I will never forget the first time I drove into Camp Lejeune by myself, shortly after our wedding a few months ago. I had my newly minted DEERS card and decided to go shop for groceries at the commissary. I’d been on base a several times before with my husband and I was used to seeing the sentry render a salute to him each time we entered. But when I approached the sentry for the first time by myself with my ID out and he suddenly snapped off a salute, I was flabbergasted! He said, “Have a good day, ma’am!” and I think I mumbled my thanks as I proceeded, but it really threw me for a loop. When I got home I told my husband what had happened. I said, “I think he must have read my ID wrong and thought I was an officer! It was so weird!” He laughed and explained to me that Marines are expected to “salute the sticker.” And he said that every time he is saluted he always remembers that they’re not saluting him personally, but his rank. I takes some getting used to. There I am in our Jeep with an officer’s sticker on it, my husband “the Major” nowhere in sight, and yet the sentry always, always, always salutes. I now just make a habit of smiling in return and saying thanks, but I am keenly aware that it is not me they are saluting. Bailey says: May 30, 2012 at 11:10 PM The reason I thought this was so funny was because my friend told me of a story (that is very true) about a LCpl not saluting a dependent wife one time. The thing that makes it so funny is when the dependent “corrected” him for not saluting he walked to the front of the vehicle and while saluting said “Good afternoon blue sticker”. The dependent then started getting frustrated demanding he salute her. The LCpl, without losing his cool, then told her to move or he was going to write her up for impeding traffic. Gotta love MPs! LoneWanderer says: May 27, 2012 at 3:13 AM Lol Satire Lol Gregg says: May 25, 2012 at 9:43 AM Oh my god. This is pathetic. She should not get rendered a salute, as she never endured the training, she doesn’t have to deploy etc. I feel this is another one of the “household 6″ I wear my husbands rank situations. ziggy says: May 24, 2012 at 7:51 PM From a former sergeant of marines, let me say this: If the Marine corps wanted you to have a wife, they would have issued you one and this week willed, pathetic excuse for a Marine wife is exactly why that saying is worth its weight in gold. I would be willing to bet a paycheck that the poor Marine Lt. Is married to isn’t event a grunt. Nuff said…. crazyc says: October 11, 2012 at 1:08 AM marines make due Ssgt tardiff says: May 23, 2012 at 11:58 AM If you want a salute put on a uniform and serve your country Ssgt tardiff says: May 23, 2012 at 11:55 AM Grow up you are not an officer wow says: May 21, 2012 at 8:40 PM Haha, some people need to learn that mp’s have better things to do than put up with the slob dependants that think they rate a salute. ben says: May 20, 2012 at 1:43 AM Since when do the mp’s gaurd the vehical gates on the rock? When I wass there it was the jp’s chuck says: May 20, 2012 at 12:04 AM Im a former Marine and i have had officer’s wives try and use their husbands rank to get me to do what they wanted and i just walk away from them. i think its funny because i know this kind of thing happens alot. anon says: May 19, 2012 at 10:18 PM IT is a ridiculous notion that a wife would expect a salute, but people keep saying it is a satire, and I want to know where it denotes that. I’ve know some military wives who had “attitudes”., believing they were due the same honor as their spouse..and Dr’s wives too.. Richard Sprowl says: August 24, 2012 at 12:17 PM Try the top of the damn page anon says: May 19, 2012 at 6:50 PM She is not a marine, why she even NEED to be saluted? Charles Bantos says: May 19, 2012 at 6:50 PM Tell to go pound sand up a mugalucks ass. Jcs says: May 19, 2012 at 1:33 PM Regardless of whether or not it’s satire, this kind of thing does happen. They get mad If anyone parks in their reserved spots at the commissary, doesn’t salute them, etc. it’s bull. Just as everyone else here has stated, THEY DON’T HAVE ANY RANK-THEIR HUSBANDS DO. Their heads are entirely too swollen. What’s the saying-if the marine corps wanted you to have a spouse, they’d issue one?! That’s the truth of the matter. Spouses are deserving of respect, just as any human is, but they do not deserve to be saluted. usmcslb says: May 19, 2012 at 10:05 AM Marines do not have decals in thier windshields in Okinawa. I am a marine stationed in Okinawa. Sgt Two NAMS says: May 19, 2012 at 9:54 AM I found the best way to treat officers wives was to fuck them. After all, thats what most of them wanted……. Major Major Major says: July 25, 2012 at 3:43 PM My ex- wife thanks you. CPT 2003 says: August 31, 2012 at 9:14 AM so you’re the one – #$^% it – like the Major said, and you can keep her . . . XMarineX says: May 19, 2012 at 9:02 AM Emotional distress?? I wouldve helped her out by putting her out of her misery. Youre welcome! Cpl. H says: May 19, 2012 at 7:15 AM Okinawa officer decals aren’t blue… Just an “O” sticker in the center of the windshield. Just sayin. WTF says: May 18, 2012 at 10:09 AM Actually, this is really going on right now, all of you that think this is a satire or a joke, its not… Just saying… Hello says: May 17, 2012 at 10:04 PM OMG PEOPLE, IT’S A JOKE! Peete says: May 17, 2012 at 8:53 PM Why should that Lance Corporal be punished? The officer was not in the vehicle. Spouse are not the one who give their life. Why do they think that they should receive the same treatment as the soldier. GTFO! says: May 19, 2012 at 1:28 AM He’s a Marine not a solider. The purpose of saluting the blue sticker is respect to the sticker being blue. It doesn’t matter who is driving the vehicle. However, the spouse should know this and know the salute is for her husband, which is the reason she has a blue sticker. Silly spouses….they give us all a bad rap Crystalina says: July 6, 2012 at 2:41 AM the article’s a joke. i’m a spouse, and i know you don’t salute a fucking sticker. GriffMcNasty says: July 29, 2012 at 5:57 AM “Hes a marine not a soldier.” Well you’re a fucking idiot, not a person. And the fucking site is satire. Heather says: May 17, 2012 at 4:13 PM How DARE this woman demand such honor. The Soldiers in Arlington are probably rolling in their graves. What fucking RIGHT do yout hink you have lady to demand such a prestigous honor? I am a Non Commissioned Officer in the United States Army, and had I been pulling gate guard, Iw ould have done the SAME THING. I render Salutes to those who bear the rank of 2LT-General of the Army, AND military branches a like. (Navy, Airforce, Marine). I will never salute a spouse, not now, not ever. You don’t deserve any such honor, you don’t serve in the military, you SURE as shit dont’ go to war with us, and you damn sure don’t lead Soldiers. You are a SPOUSE and will be treated as such. You are no special person. I don’t care who you are. If your husband was a 5 star I would salute him and ONLY him for he has earned his rank and title. You married him, that is all you did. What sense of entitlement some of this wives think they deserve. I feel sorry for the Supervisor who is actually seeking punishment, and I am ashamed he has to work with such a poor leader. Military Customs and Courtesies says NOTHING about spouses. Damn sure of it. At least not in my book or Army. You are a pathetic excuse for a woman, and I would be very ashamed to call you my wife. By the way. I’m a female SGT. Stick that in your juice box and suck on it. Crystalina says: July 6, 2012 at 2:38 AM this entire site, this article included, is. a. joke. GTFO! says: May 17, 2012 at 2:05 AM I love how they are not apologetic to her, simply the poor blue decal! HAhahahahaha dumb spouses! If this LCpl is seriously facing a NJP for something as stupid as not saluting the sticker, I think as Marine spouses we should write a complaint about this woman trying to ruin this young LCpl’s career. He’s doing his job by making sure you are not a terrorist. I think we should petition to make sure LCpl Hansen does not face any repercussions, especially something as harsh as an NJP. *for those who do not know, at this point with the Corps down sizing this Marine could lose a chance to reenlist at the hands of some whinning woman. I was a Marine, I did my time, I have my OWN DD214 with my name on it. But guess what, now I’m just a spouse and do not care who anyone else is or what their husbands rank is either. Marines have to respect the ranks, spouses just need to be exactly that….a spouse. If you want the respect that Marines give each other, earn the title yourself and stop relishing in your spouses accomplishments as your own…..weak b****s! but seriously lets petition! she has free medical for the emotional distress she’s suffering! MKM says: May 16, 2012 at 10:05 PM I’d laugh if this wasn’t so true. In my 23 years I experienced an number of situations where someone’s poggy-bait decided that she wore her husband’s rank. Let’s face it, the only military accomplishment a woman of this type has done is lay on her back and put her heels in the air… Amber says: May 16, 2012 at 9:51 AM As a marine wife I find this woman a complete idiot. You wear your marines ring NOT his rank! You are a MARINE WIFE not a MARINE. She needs to get over herself. As a fellow wife I would’ve smacked her silly Pete says: July 18, 2012 at 7:15 AM Sorry to tell you this but you ma’am are a moron and a real problem in the military. Last I checked the Military has not started to issues wives therefore, you are not a Marine (Army, Navy, Air Force, Coast Guard) wife. You are the wife of a Soldier, Marine, Seamen, Airmen (I don’t know what they call the service members in the Coast Guard). So next time remember you where not issued to you husband, There is no MOS for Military branch WIFE you are just the wife of Soldier, Marine, Seamen, Airmen (I don’t know what they call the service members in the Coast Guard)! Richard Sprowl says: August 24, 2012 at 12:10 PM Coastie JJ says: August 30, 2012 at 6:31 PM Coast Guardian? Coast Guardsman? nahhh, I like Coastie too… dgwr89 says: May 16, 2012 at 4:29 AM This is really sad. What a disgrace our military has become. Not to long ago a real leader would have pimp slab his wife and told her how it was, not punish the soldier and abuse his rank. Pits and Shagrins says: July 23, 2012 at 6:48 PM No, your post was sad. BTW, what’s a pimp slab? GriffMcNasty says: July 29, 2012 at 5:54 AM Whatever a pimp slab is, I bet its a whole fucking shitload more badass than a pimp slap. scott says: May 16, 2012 at 12:16 AM This lady does not get saluted just for driving an officers car. I guess when soldiers talk to my wife they should stand at parade rest then. I would tell them to screw off if they tried to punish me then I would file a congressional complaint. ricky bobbi says: May 15, 2012 at 11:43 PM lmao!!! jen says: May 15, 2012 at 11:38 PM Hey morons, it’s a joke, like satire…fucking idiots amanda secrest says: May 15, 2012 at 11:33 PM Seriously, I believe this story is true, bc her husband is a Lieutenant and she has to let that be known. It is officers wives like this one that separate the ranks in spouses groups bc she thinks she wears her husbands rank. Well guess what bitch till you sign away your life, give up being with your family, suffer being in sweat tents, hiking for miles and miles with 100+ lb rucksacks on your back and decide that your country is your #1 priority. Instead of shopping and getting pedicures every other day at Coocoks then you cannot demand to be called Mrs. Lieutenant Sully. Oh and may i remind you that the Lance Corporal you are trying to take half his paycheck for your stupidity maybe the one in front of your husband one day protecting him from a bullet. HM says: July 23, 2012 at 8:05 AM Folks, it’s a joke. Officer cars in Oki don’t have blue stickers, they have an ‘O’ in the top center of the windshield. Sandra says: July 26, 2012 at 8:41 PM Couldn’t have said it better myself…. DMJ says: May 15, 2012 at 10:33 PM As a former military person who had gate duty I don’t feel it is right to salute a non-officer. This lady is not an officer. Sorry lady, but the decal doesn’t make you an officer! I always felt it was a sham to salute some General’s 18 year old daughter just because the decal showed 1-5 stars. This LCPL should not be punished at all. I think that when the officer is driving the car then a placard should be put on the front dashboard, but when a civilian is driving it should be removed or flipped over. What a bunch of crap. She can’t sue for something that she never had! joeshmuckatelli says: June 4, 2012 at 5:02 PM WHOOSH. Dude, you do realize this entire website is satire, right? I bet you feel kinda dumb now. Joe says: July 18, 2012 at 3:36 AM You do realize this is based off an actual incident at a Naval Station. A Lt JG’s spouse even wrote to the Admiral’s column in the installation’s newspaper. He responded with satire and shredded her. Shell says: October 16, 2012 at 6:43 AM This ‘specific’ story might be a ‘satire’, but this happens ALL the time. I know many AF wives who insist they be saluted. Chuck says: May 15, 2012 at 6:40 PM Seriously? NJP? Even for missing a salute to an officer that’s a rediculous level of punishment. For an officer’s wife? Forget it. The most this kid should get is a “WTF?” from his immediate supervisor. I agree with the General in Richard’s post. With all due respect, get over it, ma’am. Kevin says: May 15, 2012 at 9:29 PM Ummm….you do realize this site is satire, right? Like the military equivalent of the Onion? If a Lt’s wife ever did that in real life, I would go out of my way to ensure that Lt never heard the end of it, cause that would be hilarious Jay says: May 16, 2012 at 10:36 AM Correction: The Onion is the civilian version of The Duffel Blog. Jay says: May 16, 2012 at 10:37 AM See also: http://duffelblog.wpengine.com/2012/05/needs-photo-duffel-blog-writers-launch-surprise-air-assault-on-onion-news-network/ Paul says: September 14, 2012 at 1:22 PM I remember a time that I was standing the front gate at Camp Lejeune in the early 80’s. an Officer’s wife drove up and I waved her through. She proceded to roll down her window and asked me if I saw the Blue (Officer) sticker on her bumper (they used to be placed on the bumper prior to the windshield). I stated “Yes Ma’am” to which she replied, “well don’t you salute blue stickers?” I smartly faced about and marched to the front bumper, and gave it a hand salute and the greeting of the day; “Good afternoon sticker…you may procede!” It only took about 15 minutes after she drove away that the Provost Sergeant arrived at the gate and gave me one of the best ass chewings I’ve ever recieved. It was definitely well worth it though. Pits and Shagrins says: July 23, 2012 at 6:46 PM Hard to believe that out of 100 million “swimmers” you were the strongest. Junebug says: September 13, 2012 at 11:37 AM OH MAN DID YOUR COMMENT ABOUT THE STRONGEST SWIMMER MAKE ME BUST MY GUT LAUGHING. When the timing is right I am going to use it!!!!! Richard says: May 15, 2012 at 4:22 PM I knew some like that during my 31 years of military service. There was once a General Officer who was having problems with the wives of officers who were in his Division. He accepted an invitation to speak at one of their wives gatherings held in a theater. He strode to the stage, and addressed the ladies saying “Good morning ladies” and asked them to seat themselves in order of rank from right to left and front to back. So after much confusion, milling around, different wives trying to run the thing, they were finally arranged. The General then said, “Ladies, you have no rank. Your husbands are the only ones in your household who hold a military rank” and then he left the stage and strode from the theater. Needless to say, he didn’t have any more problems from his officer’s wives. They knew where he stood on the issue. How the officers felt about it and what grief they got at home, I don’t know! krista says: May 16, 2012 at 10:06 AM Thank you for your service , and for your post ! Made me laugh so hard , LOVED IT ! Its good to know there are officers out there, that will say and do that ! My husband had been in the USMC for over 14y . As a wife thats all I am , I do not deserver any entitlement ! I am just proud of him ! Tammy says: May 16, 2012 at 3:11 PM EXACTLY!! Mala says: June 18, 2012 at 12:08 PM LMAO Classic and Brilliant! Brenda says: July 19, 2012 at 6:29 AM Ohhh Please Woman, grow up! YOU don’t deserve anything! WOW says: August 15, 2012 at 4:48 AM This is a great story and needs to happen more often! Thanks for sharing! Bill Eng says: August 25, 2012 at 8:10 AM l served 30 years in the Air Force and can honestly say, “it was worst during the 60s and 70s” but fortunately a new generation of spouses emerged that treated lower enlisted personnel with more respect. Proud to have served. Retired Patriot says: September 17, 2012 at 2:32 AM Yes, I’ve heard this story…have always loved it. You know what’s worse that a general’s wife who wears his husband’s rank? A lieutenant’s wife who wears her husband’s rank! Lady, your husband’s breath still smells like Similac! Get a life. The best compliment my wife ever got during my service as a military officer? “Wow, I didn’t know you were an officer’s wife! You don’t act like an officer’s wife!” From an enlisted spouse we had known through church. I was very proud of my bride after that! Shane Williams Sr says: October 3, 2012 at 10:38 AM Richard, I totally agree with your statement, but unless they have changed military procedure, the gate guards are supposed to salute the vehicle. And while the wives deserve no such military honor, the procedure wasn’t followed and therefore the soldiers are, for lack of a better phrase right now, in dereliction of duty. Many times you cannot see who is in the car and you salute the sticker as a default to cover your ass in case the officer is in the vehicle. And with there being female officers, the soldier at the gate has no idea if the person behind the wheel is the officer or spouse. Again, I agree that spouses do not hold the status to require the salute.
