    With no disrespect to the candidates, IMO, I feel this is a just a political endorsement message. The person in the video says he's a vet but is not wearing a uniform or any other identifying clothing.

    And also, this is not a 2A or gun related issue, just a political thread.

    While we may agree (or disagree) with the message, which is a powerful one, I feel it goes a little overboard in this forum.

    Generally, only a vet would say he's a vet.

    I have a good friend, (looks almost the same as this guy), who lost his leg in an ATV accident. We go shooting together all the time.

    I'm just saying that this is a very politcally charged election campaign, and I wouldn't put it past anyone to try some "creative advertising".

    Please don't get me wrong... I have the greatest respect and admiration for our vets. It's just that I'm cynical by nature, and question everything!

    Military members are not permitted to perform any kind of political activities in uniform. They may, however, in civilian clothes do just that.

    Thank you for that information. I did not know that.

    No problem. I guess many people don't. The government does not want to give the impression they are requiring military personnel to be for one candidate over another.

    FYI; Sarah Palin's son who is active duty Army was at the RNC speech she gave...in a civilian suit.

    EW3, right on brother. We lose many rights when we wear a uniform but have the honor to fight for our number one right, our freedom.
