Members of the American armed services are taking to social media to voice their opinions in the debate over American intervention in Syria.
This is a photo of one of the first uniformed dissenters. It was posted on the Angel Clark Show Facebook page on Aug. 31.
The photo of the anonymous Naval officer went viral, getting shared over 20,000 times this weekend.
Many war foes praised the man for being brave by hypothetically refusing to follow orders.
But others questioned the authenticity of the man's identity.
The post has inspired an array of apparent members of the military to post similar rhetoric.
The men in the photographs conceal their identities to varying degrees. But all speaking out against Syria covered their faces, presumably because the military ramifications for this kind of insubordination can be severe.
The oath of enlistment leaves no wiggle room for these statements:
The military code is also very clear on what you can and cannot say about the president as a military officer.
And all enlisted men are subject to court-martial if they disobey commands once in uniform.
But there has also been a backlash against the uniformed dissenters by other military members.
And for these men, anonymity is less of an issue.
"For all the tools lately."
One thing is certain, social media has changed the way we perceive our wars ...and the people who fight them.
