“That is not something that is allowed by military regulations, nor is it something protected by the Constitution.”

No doubt I will not convince you of anything here... but FWIW this does not matter if it was emblazoned on the Pentagon in Gold or Bronze. It is still unconstitutional and it is wrong for the military to continue with this regulation, Period.

Hubenator: No doubt this has been going on for quite awhile now. I understand the military’s tortured logic for getting permission from “their subordinates.” This is what needs to be challenged and changed via the courts.
NS: Why?

- Because it is blatantly unconstitutional. It has caused many to forfeit rights they would otherwise have as a citizen...some people do everything in their military uniforms and it does not construe tacit approval...

Hubenator: However, you seem to be one to love the way things are in the military, as far as this is concerned.
NS: I spent almost 30 years in the military. I hope so.

- No doubt, I could have guessed this by how you were defending the way things are in the military. Some old things die hard and this “regulation” needs to die. You know what? I did not enjoy MASH (the program) until after I had spent some time in the military. Sure, major hyperbole is used in the show, but it worked because of the elements of truth :)

So your argument is that military personnel should be able to use their position, rank, and uniform to support any cause?

And I'll point out that something is not unconstitutional merely because you say it is. Period

- Because it is blatantly unconstitutional. It has caused many to forfeit rights they would otherwise have as a citizen...

Well, yeah. Military service has that requirement.

Until it does, the regulation remains in effect and if the officers choose to ignore it then they deserve what they get.

I hope it does not die. I am in the military and if they start allowing military folks to wear uniform anytime they want for any reason than I guess you will see servicemembers walking in uniform in gay pride parades. You can’t really punish the many military females who posed in playboy in uniform because really it is their right to do so according to you. Oh the military islamic religious group is no problem for people in the military wearing uniform according to your reasoning. I think you are crazy!!!
