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.

SB is so desperate, he'll do anything for publicity. If it wasn't for people like myself and the rest of the troops. His ass wouldn't be a ring tone artist. I can't call him an artist, cause that he's not. What a douche bag.

This kid has no idea of the sacrifice that we have and are making. With his name Soulja being a play off the word soldier he should be more respectful. Change your name and don't disrespect us with the boofoonery that you spew in your lyrics.

Another spoiled piece of crap, you would not have the rights you have today if it were not for the Army, Air Forcem, Navy and Marines that you are dissing with these lyrics. You need a good old Fashioned A** whooping by these brave MEN AND WOMAN.

DeAndre Cortez Way is his real name. I for one will not refer to him as "Soulja Boy". He's a dumb little "boy" who probably didn't even write the lyrics. The last time anybody heard from him was 2007, and let's keep it that way.

Isn't the military fighting for our freedoms? Isn't one of our freedoms, freedom of speech? Freedom of speech covers all kinds of speech, the popular and unpopular. If you're gonna bitch about this then you are botching about our freedoms. So which one is it?

Any idiot can pick up a mic and TALK into it. RAP IS NOT MUSIC. Who cares what this fool says? Oh riiiight...I imagine the 20 or 30 people that listen to his "talking into a mic" do. He's irrelevent.
