“Its illegal for a uniformed service member to salute anything but the American flag”
The U.S. Air Force has received backlash after tweeting out an image showing a soldier saluting a LGBTQ+ flag to ‘Celebrate Pride Month‘.
The image shows a silhouetted individual throwing up a salute along with the rainbow, black and brown and trans colours and the Air Force seal. The gender of the individual isn’t clear, but it is clearly a depiction of a uniformed service member. The caption reads “June is #PrideMonth! The Department of the Air Force proudly recognizes and celebrates generations of LGBTQI+ service members and their contributions to our #AirForce & #SpaceForce.”
The Air Force Global Strike Command responded to the tweet, writing, “Our diversity is our competitive advantage.”
