The sporadic musings of a middle aged man who isn't exactly happy with the direction America is taking today....

Navy SEALs ordered to remove ‘don’t tread on me’ Navy Jack from uniforms
The Navy Jack is
the ‘don’t tread on me’ flag, one that has earned a revered place in
America’s naval history and a beloved place in sailor’s hearts, through
its use for over two centuries. This symbol of America’s naval ferocity
has spanned our country’s entire existence, flying from the masts of the
Continental Navy during the war of independence, to today’s War on
Terror. In fact, an amendment to the Navy code called SECNAV Instruction 10520.6 clearly states that as of 31 May 2002 all ships are to fly the flag throughout the duration of the War on Terror.
So why would ranking SEAL commanders ban the historical symbol? Is the proverbial top bass banning the flag? Is President Obama?
