This...you have to earn the uniform..

I remember when my oldest son, now 11 at the time 9, wanted to dress up like a soldier for halloween. So we got him some desert cami's, and he wanted me to wear my old BDUs with him. I had to explain to him it wasn't a costume, it was a uniform and I wouldn't do it. My wife thought I was being mean...but it just didn't feel right.
