A Navy SEAL convoy travelling down the highway in Kentucky caught the eye of quite a few motorists. The lead vehicle in the convoy was flying a flag you wouldn’t necessarily expect to see on a military vehicle.
The (unofficial) flag of the Commander-in-Chief!
One particular passerby saw the flag and chased down the vehicle, revealing a Donald Trump campaign logo.
That’s the kind of respect you’d never have seen for former President Obama.
In the video below, you can hear the driver announce, “You’ve got to be kidding me,” as it approaches the military vehicle flying the Trump flag.
Apparently, some snowflakes offended by the display contacted authorities, and now the military is investigating.
A Navy SEAL convoy was seen on video flying a Donald Trump flag on a highway near Louisville, Kentucky, a Navy spokesperson told ABC News.
The clip showing the lead vehicle flying the Trump flag was shot Sunday and left many wondering who the vehicle occupants were and if they were with a military unit or were military surplus, ABC News said.
Now military officials are investigating if the flag-flying equates to misconduct, the network reported.
“Defense Department and Navy regulations prescribe flags and pennants that may be displayed as well as the manner of display,” Lt. Jacqui Maxwell, a spokesperson for Naval Special Warfare Group 2, told ABC News. “The flag shown in the video was unauthorized.”
The unit commander will make a decision on any “appropriate administrative or disciplinary action.”
Recently the President reached out to the family of a fallen SEAL, then made a secret visit to honor the family.

Trump’s appreciation of the military is a welcome change from the previous administration, and could be why we’re seeing such signs of support.
That’s good news for every American.
We have just learned that the Navy is investigating the SEAL’s unit that rode with the Trump flag, and a spokeswoman for the unit said “the flag violated the NAVY rules because of its political nature.”
