3rd Special Forces Group PA Captain in hot water for commenting on a woman’s bra size…on his personal Twitter account

| May 20, 2021

CPT Rick Dickson and friend – Twitter Photo

The man in the above photo is a public affairs captain with the 3rd Special Forces Group at Fort Bragg. He posted the innocuous photo to his personal Twitter account with the message, “Heading to daughter’s cheerleading with one of my best friends and fellow Iraq vet.”

Men, particularly the type to be assigned in and around a Special Forces Group, being men, they took notice of the lovey lady. In my read through, most of the comments really aren’t even that off color, and some of them came from women. Here are a couple of examples;

  • Foxhole buddy?
  • Hubba hubba
  • Nice flex dude wow she’s gorgeous
  • It’s nice to know that car is a very safe car, it has dual airbags for sure.
  • If God blessed all our Vets as much as he did that one, the world would be a more beautiful place.

That last one is my personal favorite. Reminds me of the sort of thing my dad would say. Back on topic, the captain here responded to the comments with a now deleted tweet;

It’s that last wee little line that’s now got the captain into trouble. Army Times reports he’s been suspended pending a commander’s inquiry.

Dickson made the comments from his personal account, but “that doesn’t excuse any distasteful or potentially inappropriate language being used,” an Army official familiar with the situation said on background.

He’s since posted an apology video, with his lady friend who says she was not bothered by his comment. Army Times runs through a spate of recent cases against servicemen for personal comments;

Dickson is also the latest soldier to face potential discipline over messages or statements made in a personal capacity. The Army has seen a large number of similar cases in recent months.

A chaplain from 3rd Security Force Assistance Brigade at Fort Hood, Texas, is fighting a reprimand he received after an anti-transgender comment he made on Facebook in response to an Army Times article.

Another soldier, a paralegal noncommissioned officer in Italy, is under investigation from his command after posting an “old school rant” claiming that women with ponytails look unprofessional in uniform. [Editor’s note, we talked about this one before.]

And a Colorado National Guard officer is taking his case to federal court after he claims his superiors punished him because of his participation in Black Lives Matter protests.

Thanks to both Jeff LPH 3 and ninja for sending this one in.

    Orwell tried to warn us…

    • Bim says:

      Three hundred years from now, George Orwell will be seen as the Nostradamus of the 20th century.

  2. Harry says:

    She is fine though…and top heavy!

    • Mustang Major says:

      Confession:

      I spent an inordinate amount of time examining this photo. I have always loved travel photos.

  3. Anonymous says:

    But a service CSM being overweight and political in uniform on Twitter is okay…

  4. LC says:

    ‘G’-sus christ. She ain’t bothered, and it was a comment about her, so what’s the big deal? Big being the operative word, I guess.

  5. Veritas Omnia Vincit says:

    He’s since posted an apology video, with his lady friend who says she was not bothered by his comment.

    Of course she’t not bothered by it, I’ve never in my well over 60+ years on this planet met a good looking woman who was ever offended by someone pointing out she’s damn fine looking…

    It’s always some wildebeest looking pork chop of a lard ass that gets offended, or pinhead twerp cuck beta who’d never get to be with a good looking woman even with money…

    No harm no foul, the girl knows she’s hot which is why she dresses to show the reality she’s a good looking woman who can wear a tight shirt and jeans instead of a muumu…

    A young guy bragging on his good looking lady friend…wow save us from the horror.

  6. AW1 Rod says:

    His first mistake was using Twatter. His second mistake was apologizing for something for which he had no reason to apologize.

    Social media has become a blight. Nothing more than a tool for surveillance in control by the Nanny State, et. al.

    • MustangCryppie says:

      Which is why I dumped Facebook and Twitter years ago.

      All I can say is thank God there was none of that when I was going on Westpacs back in the 80s.

      • NHSparky says:

        I was never in PI, never got drunk, never partook in any debauchery.

        At least not that can be proven.

        • MustangCryppie says:

          “What happens in the PI, stays in the PI.”

          We were saying that long before Vegas came up with it, which is why I think the guy who came up with that ad campaign is a former PI Ranger.

      • Wireman611 says:

        Leaving Subic Bay to end Westpac, the skipper announced, “As we leave our lives ones to rejoin our families…”.

      • Milo Mindbender says:

        My “Fakebook” account is to keep track of former comrades in arms. If we have not shared a bottle, a board, or a bed you do not have access. Some women have the misfortune to claim all 3 distinctions, not a braggable feat.
        Most of the planet can go perform a physical impossibility with a stale donut on a gravel slope for all the concern I have to give them.
        I also understand that you never post anything you wouldn’t send your mother, ex wife, pastor, or rebellious teenager in a public forum.

  7. SGT Ted says:

    The Army is being run by heterophobes now.

  8. Ret_25X says:

    wait a minute…weren’t we told JUST YESTERDAY that the Army was not looking at social media?

    We need an updated list of things Skippy is no longer allowed to do in the Army. Methinks many of the items on the original list are now OK, while many normal male activities are verbotten.

    You know what is next…shaving is sexxxxist! Stop it!

    SMH, there is no pleasing the post human retards of the left.

  9. Dustoff says:

    But yet the Army is running the animated propaganda commercial on Yoo Toob featuring the “Two Moms”….
    (One bearing a striking resemblance to Hank Hill). My point being, what if Cpt Dickson was a chick?

  10. SFC D says:

    At a moment like this, you can’t help but wonder…

    What would SPEC8 Moerk do?

  11. 26Limabeans says:

    I like a nice firm B.

    Can I say that here?

  12. Roh-Dog says:

    If the Dear Captain was on Duval Street with a twink wearing nothing but a banana hammock and commented about the deviant acts he committed to the barely legal meth head….

    Crickets.

    We’ve been tolerant to the point that we tolerate intolerance. I don’t know about you but I’m done.

    She’s got some amazing chesticles.

    Roh-Dog, Out.

    • SFC D says:

      Those aren’t “G’s”. They’re “Geeeeeez”. And the young lady seems quite proud in the presentation of the aforementioned funbags, as she should!

  13. Skyjumper says:

    So I guess we can no longer use the following military terms because they just might be offensive:
    cluster fuck
    latrine queen
    slave cables
    fng
    bum chum
    donkey dick
    prick (PRC)
    good idea fairy
    bag of dicks
    cockpit
    balls to the walls
    big dick contest

    the list goes on…….

    Two friends, enjoying themselves, heading to his daughter’s cheerleading event, uses the word “G’s” and is now suspended & investigated

    Lawdy, Lawdy……WTF next.

    • FuzeVT says:

      I was always fond of verb Unfuckerate. . . .

      I any case, I’m glad I’m out and that my retirement “thank ye” has Donald John Trump as the signatory. (Threaded the needle there.)

      I was a commo and not having been able to say Prick would have made my life difficult.

      [Incidentally, I started officer life as an artillery guy which is when I choose the screen name for various internet purposes.]

      • Skyjumper says:

        As a grunt, couldn’t say “77” without the “prick” in front of it.

        Seems to me we used clusterfuck a lot. What the heck were we suppose to say? “un-congregate” yourselves?

        Have George Bush Sr.’s on mine. Was hoping to have Ronald Reagan’s on mine, but missed it by thaaaaat much. (smile)

  14. NHSparky says:

    Poor girl. If she catches a chest cold, it’ll be fatal.

  15. Hatchet says:

    Oh FFS!!! Lighten up, AT’s!!!! The pictured femme is absolutely DDG(drop-dead-gorgeous) and ‘not bothered’ by this very apparent ‘’complimentary post’. To paraphrase SkyJumper – NEXT!!!! Much ado ‘bout nuth’in…

  16. David says:

    As either of my parents would say, “she’ll never drown on her stomach.”

  17. Berliner says:

    Barely bending elbows to max the pushup portion of the APFT. Situps will be difficult, however.

  18. I never was on facebook or twitter and don’t intend to be, and before this facebook and twitter came along, I’ve never heard of all this stuff going on with the Mil reading everything you say on social media because everything said was from one person/persons to another person/persons.

  19. Mustang Major says:

    Excerpt of Ft. Bragg 1SG’s weekend safety briefing:

    “…and people, I can’t stress enough the importance of the following advice. If you go to a strip club, do not comment on the appearance of the dancers! If you do, the CO will have a conversation with you, and it won’t end well. Understand?”

  20. borderbill says:

    You’d think anyone with an IQ would know: Don’t “post” on “social media” when you are 1) overseas 2) not overseas 3) on the seas 4) under the seas 5) anywhere else.

  21. Devtun says:

    Was reading the linked Army Times article, and noticed MoH recipient LTC Charles Hagemeister passed away. RIP.

  22. KoB says:

    Mercy! Lawd hab Mercy. Them ain’t Blouse Bunnies, them’s full growed Rabbits. Does he consider them his very own “My Pillows”? Asking for a friend.

  23. Stacy0311 says:

    IF you still have Facebook, there’s a certain page there that is supposedly current or former officers.

    The younger officers are basically losing their shit over this. According to them, Rick Dickinson has always been a douchebag, he’s needs to be publicly humiliated, stripped of all rank, medals and qualification badges and be marched out the gate to The Rouge’s March. Prior to being drawn and quartered.

    Kind of makes me glad that the SRB non-selected me for retention because I’d be tempted to frag these little candy ass virtue signallers if I was ever unlucky enough to be in combat with them

  24. timactual says:

    Off topic, but I stumbled on this while Googling Capt. Dickson. It’s about that clusterfuck in Niger a couple of years ago where some dickhead “special” ops types screwed the pooch.

  25. timactual says:

    I am curious about what his daughter and wife (ex-wife?) think about this.

  26. HMCS(FMF) ret says:

    Thanks for the mammaries…

  27. Skippy says:

    Nice set of tits
