US Navy Bans ‘Don’t Tread On Me’

Navy SEALs ordered to remove ‘don’t tread on me’ Navy Jack from uniforms | The Daily Caller

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 during the war of independence, to today’s War on Terror. In fact, an amendment to the 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?

Normally, I’d have been ok with this considering uniform requirements. However, since it appears to be commonplace, and traditional (it wasn’t in the Army when I was in) then there may be something amiss. I stress MAY.
