The Navy is investigating after one of its elite SEALs units was recorded on video flying a blue Trump flag from the back of a Humvee on a Kentucky highway.
(FOX)- The video was shot Sunday on I-65 near Louisville and shows the Trump flag flapping in the wind from the back of a Humvee that was in a convoy with seven other Humvees, according to local reports.
The unit is part of the Naval Special Warfare Group 2 assigned to Fort Knox, the Lexington Herald-Leader reported Thursday.
The Defense Department initially told the paper the convoy wasn’t connected to an active military unit.
A spokeswoman for the SEALs unit , Lt. Jacqui Maxwell, told local media the flag violated Navy rules because of its political nature.
