All was quiet in the world of military memes until a Blue Star mom chimed in on Twitter about her yeoman son and the internet went freakin' nuts. All political undertones aside, the most hilarious part of the meme was her bragging about her son being "#1 in boot camp and A school" and how he was awarded the coveted "USO Award" — pretty much every vet laughed because none of those are a thing.

The Navy vet took it all in stride. He and his brother verified themselves on Twitter and he set the record straight after his mom's rant that turned into the latest and greatest copypasta. He's down to Earth, loves his cat, and doesn't seem like the kinda guy who'd brag about nonsense to his mother.

And, to be completely honest, it was kind of bound to happen. She had the best of intentions and military mommas embarrassing their baby warfighters is nothing new. Personally, I'm just glad my mom doesn't know how to use her Twitter or else I'd be in the exact same situation.
