I’m not troubled by this. I think his other photos do put the German uniforms in context. He just likes dressing up in uniform.
I’m more troubled by this statement of his:
Rich is a proud member of the Ohio Military Reserve, a component of the Adjutant General’s Department of the State of Ohio, where he holds the rank of Colonel. He is in his 28th year of service. He is a graduate of the USMC Command and Staff College and the USAF Air War College. He has been awarded the highly coveted Israeli jump wings and the Senior Parachutist wings of The Netherlands.
He clearly likes dressing up in uniforms. He’s a member of his state militia (not federally recognized). He claims no real military service. How could he be a graduate of those military schools? How could he claim foreign military honors? THIS is the story that people are missing in the midst of all the upset about one uniform.
