Navy: 'Corrective measures' taken against special warfare unit after Trump flag display

Recall that convoy of military Humvees, sans plates, moving through Kentucky that carried a Trump flag near the front of its convoy? Yeah...they shouldn't have done that.

Nearly a month later, the Navy has announced that the investigation is over and that "corrective measures" have been doled out to select members of the unit.

Lt. Jacqui Maxwell, a spokeswoman for Naval Special Warfare Group 2, said in a statement to The Washington Post that punitive actions were taken but declined to comment on the precise nature of the punishment or how many individuals were affected.

"The inquiry was completed between the unit's commanders and service members," Maxwell's statement said. "It has been determined that those service members have violated the spirit and intent of applicable DoD regulations concerning the flying of flags and the apparent endorsement of political activities. Administrative corrective measures were taken with each individual based on their respective responsibility."
