We get that it’s Pride Month and every branch of the military is going to hit us with its version of its pride tweet. Recruiters for the U.S. Air Force sent this tweet out Friday, showing some recruits apparently carrying the pride flag on their run.
Pride in all who serve. 🏳️🌈 pic.twitter.com/NqRYtK3HVc

Could we maybe have slipped an American flag in there somewhere, or is that being picky?
Our soldiers should not be marching with any flag that isn’t the American flag. https://t.co/fdBVstrM1C

Carrying the flag of the regime, and not the country, reveals who you serve.

The Air Force has switched allegiance. And here I thought the Navy would be the first to go.

So where is the American flag then?

No American flag? Seems about right.

Your flag game is shameful. You are a disgrace.

I’m sure this will help with the recruiting shortfall.

I’m not sure which is more concerning… the fact that the pride flag takes precedent over our nation’s flag or the seeming lack of a physical fitness requirement. Or is that considered body shaming?

No that’s an honest question. Me saying they look like the only place they could run is towards a buffet is body shaming.

By the looks of things that flag won’t be carried far before they gas out.

As a veteran, I agree 💯% that at no time during a formal or physical training formation should any flag other than your branch of service or our flag should be carried. So it’s either someone outside of the group is carrying the flag or someone is making a political statement.

That IS the American flag.
