A proud military veteran is demanding an apology from Soulja Boy -- after the rapper posted a video saying, "f**k the army troops."

Soulja ignited a wave of controversy this week over his new song, "Let's Be Real" -- which includes the lyrics:

"F**k the FBI and the army troops ... fighting for what? Be your own man ...
... I'll be flying through the clouds with green like I'm Peter Pan."

TMZ spoke with Fred A. Flores -- a disabled Marine Veteran who is now a commissioner for the L.A. County Veteran’s Advisory Commission. Flores tells us, "It's a very offensive statement ... especially with the 10th anniversary of 9/11 coming up."

Flores -- who has two children currently serving in the military -- calls Soulja "Ungrateful" ... adding, "He should apologize to ALL armed forces."

"[The rap] is very irresponsible," Flores stated ... "especially for a person who is an entertainer for the youth of our country."

Soulja Boy's rep refused to comment.

Kanye West much?! I feel sorry for him and anyone like him. He still doesn't understand the repercussions of his actions. Famous, he may be for now, but a STAR or TALENTED he's not.. obviously. Many in the paparazi spotlight can also be a pretty clear example. He's ignorant and a little boy .. way to set your race and generation back two steps SBoi.

I assume Soulja Boy hasn't been influenced by a veteran or soldier protecting our freedom or he wouldn't have disrespected them. I hope people choose not to buy his CDs with their hard earned AMERICAN dollars! I also hope Ingrate Soulja Boy has a deeper appreciation for our troops and the freedoms they provide.

this is the first i have ever heard of this and i am so disappointed with this sh*t My best friend died over in Afganistan protecting our rights He died doing what he was told and as for you soulja boy you need to change ur name and grow the hell up cuz one day someone is gonna take u off ur highhorse u one hit S.O.B. LEAVE THE TROOPS ALONE. some of us actually wanna meet a military man or woman and be married to them and be married to the military understanding that one day our husband or wife might not come home but that is someting we are willing to take on because not only are they fighting for our rights they are fighting for the childern of the futures rights. so i will say this again LEAVE THE TROOPS ALONE WHY DONT U SEE IF U CAN HANDLE IT.

O yes how real he is, sitting in a AC cooled recording studio wearing a 200$ shirt singing into a mic all while a soldier is wearing 80 Pounds of gear, in pants and long sleeve shirt walking on patrol in a 120 degree desert defending his right to make the ****ty music he puts out.

It is sad that we have immagrants trying to get into this country because they have respect for the freedom here that our military troops have suffered and died. NOT including thier families who has to live with ungrateful wantabes like this jerk. If Martin Luther King was alive I think he could set this (not sure what he is) straight. I think this is one (whatever he is) that the governement should enlist him in the Marines and let them take care of him. Show him what AMERICA is all about. I am not sure what country he thinks he is in but he needs a wake up call. I say THANK YOU to all of the country who has suffered and/or died to protect idiots like him. And this goes to whomever follows him. YOU ALL SUCK.... BOY. Yeah that is right I said BOY!!! And there is not word that even sounds like SOLDIER with boy because you have to earn that name. That is what you are "A BOY"!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
