  •  Service members protested at Occupy (0+ / 0-)

    protests while in uniform, which I commented on at the time.

    A bit of a tricky issue, it appears.

    •  Catesby were they on active duty? (0+ / 0-)

      Many veterans have been wearing uniforms to Occupy activities, which is fine.  The penalties are stiff for active duty military personnel and they should be discouraged from wearing any military uniform or gear to Occupy events.

        certain circumstances and events based on the status of the vet being retired or similar exception.  Most are bound by the same law forbidding the wearing of the uniform by civilians.
