3. Multi-levels. First, the military is supposed to be UN-political, 1st loyalty to the Nation

The *CIVILIAN* concept is supposed to be primary over military.

At the "Annapolis Hotel" in Saigon 1967 there was a poster saying that NO discussion of politics was the rule. Obviously, cohesion for the NATION is the object.

There's a difference between ACTIVE DUTY (serving) and afterwards/VETERAN status (back to civilian life). Active, you've got no (circumscribed) rights, are the "property" of the government. Back as a civilian/veteran you are back at being under the Constitution.

****So who were the "military assholes who wore MAGA hats and other Pussy-Grabber regalia"? - Were they really "military" (active duty) in which case, NO, can't wear that crap. Or were they veterans/civilians, in which case they *can* wear the crap.

Back in 2000, I was stunned and disgusted when Medal of Honor holders were on Shrub's stage in front of the media wearing their Medal of Honor medals and caps endorsing Shrub. They were USING their military honors for POLITICAL purposes. I called the Medal of Honor Society to complain but got totally shut out ignored. It was like, these old dudes earned their honors under severe physical pain so they have the right to flash their medals where they want to. That's not a military rule thing.
