Considering the fact that there isn’t a disgruntled first sergeant actively trying to feed that Pikachu to this man, we’re going to go out on a limb and say that he isn’t currently serving in the active-duty Army.
The most unfortunate thing about this photo is that they were soooo close to actually flipping a tank. Better luck next time, fellas.
