UCMJ covers a lot of topics I believe there is a regulation covering wearing a uniform and political speech (read that as it is a big NO NO). They
can voice their opinions out of uniform however when in uniform they cannot so by obscuring their name and face they are able to get away with it and
it is actually a very powerful message this way.
It is the same regulation that prevents soldiers from attending candidate rallies in uniform because it would give the impression that they speak for
all military in supporting that candidate. Last election a case of such happened when a young soldier attended a function for Ron Paul in uniform
without clearing it through the chain of command.
The fact that these soldiers are doing this is brave and the fact that they are hiding there faces is smart it also keeps the story focused on the
message instead of on the individual soldiers doing it.
