In all honesty active service members are not allowed to be in uniform unless it is on their official orders. Any leisure travel absolutely no military members should be wearing uniforms!

So yes by saying"in uniform" does upset military members and their immediate family members. Every time I flew with my now veteran husband and we heard that we would not get up. He would not wear his uniform unless ordered to and most do not want to be in them longer than they have to.
