I will start. I think most of the criticism is pointless and unfounded. Most of it is by people who just want to make fun of a group who enjoys what they are doing. Either that, or they are jealous of something.
However, some are in the right to criticize. People who emulate a unit fully, or don medals and patches they did not earn, deserve to be questioned. While I have a kit made in honour of an army some of my relatives were a part of, I do not have the audacity to give the illusion that I am a part of them.
As a side note: I am currently training myself before I am shipped off to basic training with the CF. I am not an army wannabe, but simply one who will be.
In loving memory of Omeljan Kuzik.
