military dress uniform to advance his political agenda?
Pentagon regulations prohibit Doug Legenfelder a Cambria County commissioner candidate from using his military dress uniform on his campaign stumps for political purposes.
"The retiree is not authorized to wear his uniform to political events," said U.S. Air Force spokesman Troy Rolan. He cited regulations that say current and former service members should only wear the uniform to ceremonial events, such as Memorial Day, and should not wear the outfit to political functions.
“This is inappropriate,” said Ed Maxwell, a Jensen Beach Vietnam veteran and member of Stolen Valor, a nonpartisan group of vets committed to blowing the whistle on candidates who misrepresent their service.
