those patches he has, kinda look like the US's state versions of their "militia" "paramilitary" or whatever they are called,  I think it might be State Defense forces.

They could be SDF patches, but they could also be AD, NG or Reserve SSI. On the photos I've seen of SDF, they have a seem to have a tape that says the state and that they are SDF(would be on the location where he has a black pin). Plus, they were all clean shaven, wore headdress of some sort(ACU caps and black caps), and either wore the US flag on the right sleeve or a state flag.

they handle security alot at a governah fundraising events etc.

Any source for that? The information I found on them says they can be used in emergency situations to assist the emergency services, National Guard, etc. I couldn't find anything saying a Governor can use them as his personal security force at events.

Never knew that there was such a thing beyond the ARNG. Made me do some research on the subject -Wikipedia has a good page for a start.

Back to our boy up above; I did a quick review of SDF patches and although the patch on the left bears a resemblance to the Georgia SDF (and that's the only one that is close) it seems different somehow with thicker stitching and the absence of the "Parati Servire" arch patch that goes above the main patch. He's also missing the cloth velcro "Georgia" insignia that would go on the left chest where the plastic tag is. Finally pretty much every picture I looked at the members wore an ACU Patrol Cap and no beards - the Georgia SDF (at least in their website photos) appear to have some uniform discipline when in ACUs.

Can you imagine if Quebec, Ontario had their own "State Defense Forces??"""""

If I remember my history correctly, Quebec, under the reign of Maurice Duplessis had one; it was called the Quebec Provincial Police.  Very useful for breaking up union rally's, etc.

I was on a TAV at MacDill AFB (been a few years) and a State Governor or Governors were there and I couldnt figure out why there were all these soldiers at various checkpoints around the base wearing tags with a name of state on it. (2 or 3 different states). I asked the RSM he said that some special visit was going on of State Governors etc. May be not particularily for security, but possible directing traffic etc.

As for the QC army, possibly could be the OQLF....

Not sure if this person is trolling, or serious because everything about this is so clearly fake and just weird.

So, I scrolled through his page, Skeletor.  That's 4 minutes and 10 seconds of my life that you owe me back for posting that link.

As far as I know, gorilla tactics are mostly chest beating, roaring, bluff charges, and tearing off an arm and beating you to death with the soggy end.

Other than the CD, I have no idea what this guy is wearing. It looks like a cadet medal to the left of his CD. Suggestions?

The picture is originally from the Warriors Day Parade site and I've seen this walt there, but not this year. The one behind the CD is an Army Cadet Medal which should be worn on the right as a commemorative medal (if at all) and not mounted with his CD. The other three are commemorative bling he's bought online to pad his rack.

The first is The Medal for National Service,  the second the General Service Cross and  the third  Queen Elizabeth Golden Jubilee Medal

Illegal not really sad yes and even more pathetic he appears to have mounted them in the wrong order of walt precedence according to the site he bought them from and yes I had to look them up

I've seen his rack elsewhere with his name  and give me a bit and I'll dig it up  so we can publically shame him  >:D.

The pay as you go medals that legion members wear seems like a vain attempt to mimic military service.

It amazes me that posing as an officer is illegal but you can lead others to believe you have military awards for service.

Ok pay as you go medals are not limited to Legion types, and don't confuse them with the Legion Service Medals that are worn on the right side and are earned for service in the Legion and certainly not self awarded.

Technically wearing these ebay medals is not illegal it's a loop hole which is why he's doing it instead of pinning a GCS and a SMV on his blazer.

Speaking of legality, has anyone here actually seen anyone charged and punished for this in Canada? (No, I did not search the thread)

Fair enough. I was speaking to the practice of buying medals and being permitted to wear them along side medals awarded.

Ha, the 'general service cross'...


I was 'accosted' by a portly CIC type at a legion last rememberance day who, seeing my brit OSM Afghanistan, asked how I got permission to wear it. I replied by showing him the edge of the medal where my regt'l number, corps and name was engraved saying 'this was my first permission' then described how I drafted a quick memo up the chain, RSM said 'put it up for now' and 3 months later got a nice letter back from DHH saying go ahead, wear away, having enclosed (helpfully I might add) a pamphlet on the order of precedence for Canadian honours.

Anywho, he then tells me he was 'awarded' the General Service Cross and wasn't allowed to wear it. He looked quite put out when I said 'well that's understandable, it's not a real medal, hope you didn't pay much for it'.

The conversation ended there.....
