SEAL’s Navy Jack Flak
Navy orders SEALs to stop sporting “Don’t Tread on Me” patch.
The First Navy Jack with the words “Don’t Tread On Me” has flown on naval ships since the time of the American Revolutionary War. However, according to our colleagues at NavySeals.com, “Senior personnel from within WARCOM and Naval Special Warfare are putting out instructions and memos stating that Navy SEALs are no longer authorized to wear the ‘Don’t Tread on Me’ patch on their combat uniforms.” Of course, those words also appear on the Gadsden Flag, which is associated with the Tea Party movement. Indeed, we confirmed this order from NSW: “All personnel are only authorized to wear the matching ‘AOR’ American Flag patch on the right shoulder. You are no longer authorized to wear the ‘Don’t Tread On Me’ patch.”
