Can we agree that there is at least 1 thing that is 100% right and 100% wrong for the armed forces of a Representative Republic; the armed forces should never adopt in whole or in an obviously derivative manner any symbol of a domestic political party, organization, or movement?
Can we at least find common ground there?
Maybe I do need an AFDB.
Standard issue for a US military heraldry perspective.
Now for the new logo.
Bounce that off of the Obama for President logo:
In another binary moment: the person who approved this is either colossally ignorant and inept, or they are trying to curry favor with a political movement via a ".mil" domain.
In either case, that individual needs to immediately and publicly explain himself, resign, and/or be fired.
I know that seems harsh, even for me - but I do not care if you have the Obama for President logo tattooed on the tip of your John Thomas; you have to agree that the US military should not be even close to this. This habit has a very bad history and of all nations, ours should be the last where a military adjusts its heraldic items to reflect something involving political parties.
Please, tell me I am wrong here.
