VIRGINIA BEACH, Va. The Navy is investigating the display of a Donald Trump campaign flag by the lead vehicle in a military convoy.
The Virginian-Pilot reported Thursday (http://bit.ly/2jIH5HQ) the Navy has repeatedly warned sailors against appearing to endorse candidates while on the job.

I think the only correct answer will be “No sir, I did not display the Trump flag, and I certainly will not do it again”.
“The Virginian-Pilot reported Thursday (http://bit.ly/2jIH5HQ) the Navy has repeatedly warned sailors against appearing to endorse candidates while on the job.”
Candidate? He’s the President
What happened to the Navy Pilot that used the call sign FTRUMP over Houston last week?
I hope if they ever find out who did it they just get a verbal “naughty naughty “
These men have a real leader for the first time in years
The Kentucky-based anti-Trump organization, Indivisible Kentucky, was one of the first to post video of the incident on its website, calling it a fascist tactic
It was a SEAL Team 6 convoy.
SEAL Team 6 is Delta Force, operates at the direct discretion of the POTUS.
There are a few (very select few) military SEALS/Rangers/Green Berets that operate above Delta, I do not feel that these folks will receive more than a ‘public youshouldnthave’ and a private scotch and a cigar.
Thank you Lord that the heinous ‘O’ has left the building.
Yes sir we did display a flag bearing the name of the Commander In Chief
Whose picture is up in every HQ
If the Navy does not approve of campaign flags then perhaps the POTUS should award CINC colors to every unit that wishes to display them
Glad we have the WashPost and their long standing impartial interest in defending proper military ettiquette.
He. Is. Their. Commander in Chief.
These are the only APPROVED NAVY FLAGS.
What they know about military etiquette would fit in a thimble with room left for an elephant.
What’s to investigate? Was harm done? Was national security compromised? So a rule was broken or a procedure was violated. Write a reprimand to the unit in question, distribute it and circular file the original.
Much ado about very little.
Nope, not true, two separate entities.
He's not a candidate; he's the Commander in Chief.
I’m very worried about a military coup.
