In an absolute in your fave move by Navy Admiral, Colin Green.
In the Obama administration, Green would have likely received his walking papers or been fired.
The pro-United States President, Donald J.Trump made sure his rank and pay were restored, along with his SEAL Trident.
President Trump showing once again, he pays close attention to his fighters as commander-in-chief of America’s Armed Forces.
‘The Navy will NOT be taking away’ Gallagher’s Trident pin, Trump says.

President Trump on Thursday morning publicly overruled the U.S. Navy and declared the military “will NOT” strip Navy SEAL Edward Gallagher of his Trident pin, which symbolizes his membership in the elite unit.
The president criticized the military’s handling of the case and seemed to offer the final word on whether Mr. Gallagher will face any additional repercussions.
“This case was handled very badly from the beginning. Get back to business!”
Mr. Gallagher’s rank had been reduced last summer after he was convicted of posing with the corpse of an Islamic State militant in Iraq in 2017.
The president’s comments put him at direct odds with the Navy.
It had scheduled a December review hearing to determine whether Mr. Gallagher should be stripped of the pin, which would effectively kick him out of the unit.
