H.O.V.A.'s Heroes -- Jay-Z Parties Army Strong

9/15/2009 2:15 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

While Kanye West used the VMAs to destroy a young girl's hopes and dreams -- Jay-Z was busy making dreams come true for a few members of the U.S. Armed Forces.

Jay-Z -- Marine Corps
Sources tell us when Jay arrived at the ASICS after party at the 40/40 Club -- which he owns -- on Sunday night, he pulled the uniformed crew from the line outside to walk the red carpet with him.

After that, we're told Jay brought them inside the club and hooked them up with full VIP treatment.

Watch and learn, Kanye.

The guy on the end with the Marine Dress Blues Uniform jacket is a wanna be because it is half a uniform and no true Marine in his right damn mind would go out lookin half assed like that. And no, it depends on which uniform the military personnel is wearing. If they are wearing their service uniform its ok but cammies, its not good. Well army lets them and Marines have higher standards so they cannot wear cammies out in town.

I don't know what their hand gesture is supposed to mean but in American Sign Language it's the sign for a very specific body part. This pic looks very crude to anyone proficient in ASL!

The gentleman on the right (in Marine top and jeans) also appears to have an earring, which is against military policy.

For your own information Michael actually went to an Army base, and visited the troops and their families that were there and thanked them for their services personally. No disrespect to Jay Z( love him totally) but all he's doing is juat posing with them. Any one can do that.

Check your facts before letting your mouth run

Look at all the WJ spermette cheerleaders on TMZ. WJ rahrahrah!    

Thanks, MG, for answering my question.

MJForever, many, many Americans won't pose with the military that protects them and their rights. So get off the high horse you rode in on.

Jay, thinks of himself as a God, which is why he calls himself JayHOva (Jahova). He is also giving a satanic sign which he is now having the military officers promote. If you think Jay Z is so great maybe you should do your research on Jay Z and his occult practice and he Illuminati. Educate yourself about Jay Z. He is not who you think and there is a lot of deception with him and his wife Beyonce. You do not have to believe me, just do your research before you go worshipping this man. He is being used as a tool to deceive and he is doing a good job of it. I find it very scary to see military personnel throwing up these signs. Do your research people and stop promoting and worshipping Jay Z. He is leading you on a path of destruction.

barry Gordy is genius    

Correction, TMZ : JAY Z and KANYE WEST are the same. That gang sign HOVA is throwing up with those young military men is the gang he leads. Kanye is a part of it. It's called ROC LA FAMILIA. As much as you'd like, you can't separate Jay Z from Kanye West. They are from the same camp. And they push the same agenda. C'mon TMZ, get a clue.

Marine Wife    

The guy on the right is either A)a poser or B)a complete f*cking idiot for disrespecting the Marine Blues blouse like that. It's against MCO to wear wear it like that. God that pisses me off. If the other two guys ARE marines, why in the hell didn't they rip him a new one? BOOTS!

Will someone please explain the meaning of the gesture they are making in this photo? I noticed Beyonce doing the same thing when Jay was on stage performing at the VMA's...
