The military convoy spotted on Sunday flying a Donald Trump flag near Louisville belonged to an East Coast-based SEAL unit, a Navy spokesperson told ABC News.
Military officials have launched an inquiry to determine if any misconduct can be linked to the incident. Regulations do not permit an unauthorized flag on a military vehicle.
"The convoy were service members assigned to an East Coast-based Naval Special Warfare unit driving vehicles while transiting between two training locations," Lieutenant Jacqui Maxwell, a spokesperson for Naval Special Warfare Group 2, told ABC News. Naval Special Warfare Units is the official Navy term for its elite SEAL special operations teams.
Maxwell said that Fort Knox, near Louisville, is used by Naval Special Warfare units for routine training.
The spokesperson said that a command inquiry has been initiated to determine what flag was being flown by the vehicle in the convoy.
"Defense Department and Navy regulations prescribe flags and pennants that may be displayed as well as the manner of display," said Maxwell. "The flag shown in the video was unauthorized."
I have to say I am somewhat amazed at the cognitive dissonance portrayed by these servicemen.
After all Trump authorized an ill conceived raid that killed one of their own, along with a number of civilian women and children.
And there is every likelihood that Trump will send many more to their deaths in the next few years, since he has essentially threatened everybody from China, to Iran, and even Mexico.
