VIRGINIA BEACH, Va. (AP) — The Navy has found that members of a special warfare unit violated regulations when their military vehicle displayed a Donald Trump presidential campaign flag while training in Kentucky.
Lt. Jacqueline Maxwell released a statement this week that said "corrective measures were taken with each individual based on their respective responsibility." It did not elaborate on what those corrective measures were.
The military convoy that displayed the flag in January belonged to a special warfare unit based in Virginia Beach. Images of a pro-Trump flag on a vehicle's antenna then circulated on social media. News reports said the Navy has repeatedly warned sailors against appearing to endorse political candidates while on the job.
