Mystery Military Convoy Spotted Carrying ‘Trump’ Flag

This mystery Humvee convoy was spotted in Kentucky down Interstate 65 through Louisville on Sunday morning, and no branch of the military has yet to claim it.

According to the Courier-Journal, a spokesman for Ft Knox, Patrick Hodges, stated the convoy wasn’t theirs, followed by Kentucky National Guard Major, Stephen Martin, doing the same.

One idea is that the vehicles may have been “military surplus”, said a Defense Department spokesman, Maj Jamie Davis, who took a look at the footage before concluding that they probably don’t belong to any service branch.

Davis also stated that flying such a flag (it was the Trump – Make America Great Again flag) on a military vehicle would violate certain regulations. “That is not standard procedure,” he said, before adding that it wouldn’t have been legal to run a military convoy without unit markings on the trucks.

Activist and retired Air Force veteran Chris Rowzee said: “I can’t even begin to describe how disturbed I am by this. To show a partisan political leaning on a military vehicle is very reminiscent of Nazi Germany.”

It’s possible that those types of Humvees, with modified beds and desert tans, either are or had been at one point Army vehicles, at least that’s what Tracey Metcalf, administrator for the Military Vehicle Preservation Association thinks.

    Another article that the author thinks is about cars but really it’s not! Last time it was economics, this time politics! Yay!

    • matrem

      And yet you read it AND left a comment.

      • Kash

        Only read it when i saw the article someone how referenced Hitler. And of course i commented, criticism is neccessary, especially with today’s news outlets, otherwise you end up with a bunch of Buzzfeed and Gawker sites, and remember what Gawker did to get shut down?

  • Wadsworth Van Hagar

    I thought this was already debunked as being just a bunch of dummy Humvee enthusiasts.

            haha!
            thank you for shooting yourself in the foot.

            4 Million illegals voted!!!
            Obozo himself demanded publicly that illegals vote in the elections!

            And now it’s payback time.
            watch as all your work for decades gets unraveled

            yep.
            we won,
            we are undoing decades of your advances,
            you will NEVER be back in power ever again,
            and you are pretending i can’t notice your fear behind your facade of confidence 🙂

          • Waykent

            There are 16 American governors and multiple senators and representatives. Ergo, you are lying.

          • smartacus

            Ha! your side lost over 1,000 House and Senate seats under Obozo and you don’t even have that many governors left. You…are…lying

          • Waykent

            Please provide proof.

          • smartacus

            You want me to prove general knowledge that not even Feinstein, Feingold, Boxer, or Schumer are retarded enough to deny.
            I will do something better. I will not prove to you 1+1=2.
            i will let you continue destroying your credibility in everyone’s eyes.

            Keeeeeep yelling and throwing that tantrum.
            yes, i see you are losing steam.

            Once you are weak enough, my truth will set you free

          • Waykent

            What truth?

          • Waykent

            Please provide proof 4 million illegal immigrants voted in the 2016 elections.

          • smartacus

            Please provide proof that the generally accepted fact of 4 Million illegal immigrants illegally voting in 2016 did not happen.

            You can’t 🙂

          • Waykent

            It did not. There is no evidence for it.

          • smartacus

            Obozo himself urged Millions of illegals to illegally vote in the elections.
            You lost.
            i have zero problem whatsoever of repeating it over and over for the next 8 years.
            Care to try me?

          • Waykent

            Who is Obozo?

          • smartacus

            the one who destroyed your party

          • Waykent

            Who are they?

    • TChristopher

      Wrong….Anyone who finds a problem with this is displaying their good intelligence.
      There is a saying that says “those who forget the past are doomed to repeat it”.
      You must be young and poorly educated in history.

      • TheHake

        Wrong… why do you think that only your side of the fence is right?

        • KenjiK

          Because the OP did exactly the same thing on his side?

        • smartacus

          it is his religion for his side to be right at all costs.

      • smartacus

        Thank you for your “everyone knows the sky is red” reply.

        you have a problem with it because you are a problem.
        and you are essentially ignorant and utterly uneducated in history which i will teach you.

        • I’mCallingYouOut

  • mike

    It’s military wannabes that bought surplus vehicles… It would be illegal if it were the actual military.

  • danno

    Hilarious and if you look hard enough, you can find the token useful idiot aka Air Force veteran Chris Rowzee.
    Nice job on that extensive search Carscoops.
    Gee, if I didn’t know any better, it would seem Carscoops is front end alignment is pulling hard left.

    “I can’t even begin to describe how disturbed I am by this. To show a partisan political leaning on a military vehicle is very reminiscent of Nazi Germany.”

    I think THIS is a little over-the-top since it’s likely NOT actual US Military (it’s likely a few folks opinion) but it does show why we shouldn’t be selling surplus military items.

  • kachuks

    Just a bunch of America loving Humvee enthusiasts going for a ride, nothing to see here.

    But just in case they are a real SEAL unit… any Trump protestors are more than welcomed to get in their face and piss them off. Let us know which hospital you end up in so we can send you a get well card.

      “…any Trump protestors are more than welcomed to get in their face and piss them off. Let us know which hospital you end up in so we can send you a get well card.”

      Which, if they are active, would mean a discharge. Real SEALs are not that foolish.

  • T_Cake

    I kind of figure if the Defense department is so up in arms (haha) about it, then maybe they should quit selling retired military vehicles to private citizens.
