82nd Airborne rips into Charlottesville man wearing hat, giving Nazi salute

The 82nd Airborne knows a little about beating Nazis and when a photo of a man in Charlottesville giving the Nazi salute while wearing an 82nd hat went viral, the division had a few choice words on the matter.

The official Twitter account of the 82nd Airborne Division tweeted Monday:

"U really think that guy is an active member of the 82nd just because he has that hat? My mom has that same hat. She's 78 & has never served."

The account also tweeted:

The Fort Bragg based-Army division took part in many battles and campaigns during World War II, among them: Sicily and Italy, D-Day, Operation Market Garden and the Battle of the Bulge.
