“The point you seem to be missing is the whole getting permission to help a private organization make or raise money.”
Yes, this unconstitutional idea stinks to high heaven. Get permission to promote... ??? I do not care if they make money or not...it IS their right whether the military says so or not...this concept needs to be challenged and rightly so.
You are right. They can promote all they want to. However, they cross the line when they wear their uniform, or endorse as LCDR Fan of Fiat instead of just FoF.
I certainly would be upset if they showed up in a CAIR video.
I do not care if they make money or not...it IS their right whether the military says so or not..
They are free to leave the military any time its rules are too confining. And what you do and do not care about in the context of the rules governing military behavior are not really the subject of this thread.
And I gather that all they needed to do was to do their thing in civilian clothes and all would have been fine ... their rights as citizens have not been impeded in the slightest.
