    Oh, is that a real Marine 0-5? No wonder it's both really stupid and really funny. He was going out of his way to sanitize things....which is why we're picking it apart so much. LOL. Did you even notice at one point in the video his salad was on his right chest and medal on the left chest?

    Also at 1:07, the image is reversed and his ribbons appear on the right chest.

    More great catches regarding all three errors.
    The flag that is mounted on the rear wall should have the stars on the left, not on the right as seen from the audience.
    Naval officers do not wear any insignia devices on the coat collars of their dress blue service uniforms. However, midshipmen at the Naval Academy, NROTC and officer candidates at OCS are authorized to wear metal insignia on their dress blue coat collars.
    And although certain ribbons can be worn on the right chest, I'm not aware of any medals authorized for wear on the right chest.

    Finally, the medal that the Navy officer is receiving is the Army Distinguished Service Cross. He should be receiving the equivalent Navy Cross.

    That's my pet peeve. I don't even like the decision for right sleeve uniform flags, though it's no longer improper.

    Nice catch. You are correct. If you really want to get technical about it, there are three more uniform mistakes.

    As a member of the SEALS, he is not wearing the SEAL Trident insignia above the ribbons on his chest.

    Also, SEAL officers are Unrestricted Line Officers. Therefore, they all wear a gold star above the gold stripes on the sleeves of their dress blue uniforms. Notice that the Admiral in the video does have this star on his sleeve.

    Roger that. The smart money here is on the enlisted SEAL. Great hit though!!
