You can't find a single photo of a fascist military vehicle flying a flag with their commander in chiefs name on it, huh?

I wonder what the reaction would be if it were an Obama flag on it. I'm guessing the tables would be flipped and opinions would change on a dime.

On duty? No. The military is there to serve the consititition and the OFFICE of president, not a individual person.
Wasn't aware that A convoy unit comprised the whole of the American military.

I do find this inappropriate. BUT, we should look at what the regulations state:
Military regulations say personnel should avoid implying Department of Defense sponsorship or endorsement of any “political candidate, campaign or cause.”
Donald Trump is not a candidate for anything, he is the President of the United States. He is a person, not a campaign nor a cause. These regulations were not broken. I served eight years. Military rules are literal, not inferred.
Also, they are not Special Forces, but a Special Warfare Unit of the Navy. Yes, huge difference.

I'm usually on your side with things, but you have no idea what you're talking about. No. Enlisted members do not have the same rights as civilians. Google it if it shocks you, but it's hardly breaking news.
