Without comment either pro or con on the nature of the protest I simply comment that if servicemen do indeed appear in uniform they open themselves up to some pretty big problems with the service. The US Army (and all other services) highly regulate the wearing of the uniform. In the case of the US Army AR 670-1 governs this and states in part:
j. Wearing Army uniforms is prohibited in the following situations:
(1) In connection with the furtherance of any political or commercial interests, or when engaged in off-duty civilian employment.
(2) When participating in public speeches, interviews, picket lines, marches, rallies, or public demonstrations, except as authorized by competent authority.
(3) When attending any meeting or event that is a function of, or is sponsored by, an extremist organization. (4) When wearing the uniform would bring discredit upon the Army. (5) When specifically prohibited by Army regulations.
My experience is that this would be handled quickly by military police particularly with the advance warning that has now been given.
These guys are vets not active duty so I would venture to say the Military police have no jurisdiction here unless there is something in the enlistment contract the gives them jurisdiction after they are out.edit on 1-10-2011 by hawkiye because: (no reason given)

I think most of us that are older have seen this time in our country coming for a long while. It seriously brings tears to my eyes when I think about all the ramifications beginning to play out and how it will affect our children in the coming days and years.... It truly does.
I also think many of my generation, with much trepidation, sadness and resolve are beginning to think, and perhaps now starting to say aloud--
Don't fire unless fired upon, but if they mean to have a war, let it begin here." -- Captain John Parker, 1775
As much as we don't want it, we do see there may not be any other option to protect our posterity
What a terrifying and exciting time to be alive... It is NOT 1775 and there are far more tools available to TPTB
I just pray there are enough loyal patriots to stand and stop what TPTB intend to do with such raw emotion of The People!
It would REALLY suck to assist in our own demise
no no ats readers WE DONT NEED NO STINKING BANKS!!! yeah right
