Several Navy airmen were photographed wearing pro-Trump patches Monday, prompting a review by the military branch into whether they may have violated protocol.

In a picture tweeted out by Wall Street Journal editor Vivian Salama, five airmen are seen wearing red patches reading “Make Aircrew Great Again” complete with an illustration of the 45th president.

According to the Associated Press, the Navy is looking into whether the airmen may have breached dress code protocol.

“In a brief statement Tuesday, the Navy said only that the matter was under review by Navy leadership to ensure that the wearing of the patches did not violate policy or regulations,” reported the AP Tuesday.
