In the wake of a shooting a Marine recruiting station in Chattanooga last week, measures to keep military members and staff safe were quickly taken, the Marine Corps Times reports. One of which included temporary closing recruiting stations and telling recruiters not to wear uniforms in public. But not everybody is taking the advice seriously.

“Lone Survivor” Marcus Lutrell criticized the response to his almost one million followers on Facebook.   

Just heard something about Telling Marines not to wear their uniforms at the recruiting centers for their own safety…?! I have to tell y’all I laughed out loud, if anyone thinks for one second a Marine is gonna take his uniform off because he cares about his safety or is scared of some shitbag walking in off the street and trying this again ( WRONG) that’s not gonna happen, that’s not how we respond in the military when we get hit, we don’t take off our uniforms, drop our weps and run. Also you can outfit every recruiting station w/ firearms, grenades or a F.,?!ing tank, this goes down again and there is a good chance you’ll find the person beaten to death by the water cooler or stapler … The bullets will be the last of you problems. Think on it. RIP brothers, your families will miss you, the country will mourn you, and those still wearing the uniform will never forget you.

Luttrell served in as a U.S. Navy SEAL in Afghanistan and is best known for surviving a brutal firefight with Taliban fighters, which was covered in his book “Lone Survivor.” He is a regular commenter on Fox News and a veterans’ advocate.

The government’s measures were taken just a day after a gunman attacked two military facilities, leaving four Marines and one sailor dead.
