Marine behaved exactly as he should

I am very proud of what Marine Sgt. Maj. Paul Archie did. The protester was wearing a campaign cover, a hat that has a long history going back to when we Marines received the name, leathernecks. The protestor showed a total disrespect for the U.S. Marine Corps. Whether a civilian or retired military, the protester did not have the authority to wear this cover outside a base. And if he is not currently a drill instructor, he does not have the right to wear it at all. In my opinion, he is one lucky person that the situation didn't escalate beyond where it did.
