Navy Special Warfare unit flies Trump flag

As America descends into Left-orchestrated protests and violent riots, a sign that the military has President Trump’s back was seen last Sunday in Louisville, Kentucky — a military convoy flying a Trump flag.

Andrew Wolfson reports for the Courier-Journal, Feb. 1, 2017, that the military convoy seen flying a Trump flag belonged to a Navy Special Warfare unit, according to Navy spokeswoman Lt. Jacqui Maxwell of the Naval Special Warfare Group 2 in Virginia Beach, Virginia.

Maxwell said the Special Warfare forces were training in and around Fort Knox, Kentucky, and that the Trump flag was “inappropriate” and “unauthorized” and that a command inquiry is underway. Maxwell said the infractions will be investigated by the unit’s commander, who will decide what discipline to impose, if any.

Military regulations say personnel should avoid implying Department of Defense sponsorship or endorsement of any “political candidate, campaign or cause.”

Photos and videos of the convoy were first posted by Indivisible Kentucky, a anti-Trump Louisville-based political organization. Witnesses variously described the convoy including four and 10 trucks.

Some motorists said they were alarmed by military units flying the flag of a national leader rather than the country, which they said is reminiscent of a fascist government or banana republic. Others noted that Trump is now the commander in chief, not a political candidate, and they saw nothing wrong with service members supporting him. The White House did not immediately respond to a request for comment.

The Navy Special Warfare Command is part of the U.S. Special Operations Command, which is responsible for overseeing and conducting special operations and secret missions. It specializes in unconventional warfare, direct actions, counterterrorism, special reconnaissance and personnel recovery.

  1. It is unfortunate but someone is going to get spanked over this one.

  2. They should be severely punished for such a display. They should be sentenced to a steak & seafood dinner, a three day weekend leave, and 1 degree promotion in rank!

    • YouKnowWho . . . By golly, I really do like your thinking! To the detractors, he (Trump) is the Commander in Chief, but you can bet that the libtards will grind on this to no end.

  3. You just can’t do that in the military. But they might have gotten away with a bumper sticker. Plausible deniability.

  5. I share their support for the present Commander-in-Chief, but, looking ahead, there may come in years ahead, my Lord forbid, Commanders-in-Chief similar to those in our recent past or worse and troops who would fly such flags. Even worse, they may be ordered to fly those flags by the Commander-in-Chief. Imagine a military vehicle flying a flag marked “Hillary” going by.

  7. If this were six months ago, and the flag said Obama (like that would ever really have happened), you wouldn’t be hearing about this.

  8. Maybe they were just showing respect to the man that just respected the loss of a Navy Seal. Something they haven’t had happen in a long time.
    At least they aren’t forcing our children to sing songs about Trump in schools about things they do not understand.

  11. Liberals would rather piss on our servicemen than honor them, unless those servicemen serve their own needs. THAT is fascism. These people would kill every last one of us if given the chance, but that’s why we have the second amendment while they have clubs and fire bombs.

  12. That was a serious violation of the UCMJ. That is going to cost someone his command and several someone’s rank and pay. IF they are lucky and don’t draw a general Court over what was a really stupid thing to do. No matter how you cut that one it was an “breach of good order.” Something the military is rather fond of, and something DEMANDED of those in the Naval service.

  13. Thank you Dr. Eowyn for this interesting post. I think it is absolutely wonderful, and the point the flag makes is to reiterate and display unity and gratitude for our country.
