Marines Only Posed with Nazi SS Flag Because They Thought It was Cool

United States Marines soldiers were not punished over a recent gaffe when a group of soldiers posed with a Nazi SS flag inadvertently.  According to Marine officials, the soldiers simply thought the flag was cool, adopting it as a logo for sniper scouts (hence the double-S).  These are young men, granted, who were definitely not alive during the height of the Nazi movement, but it is a little hard to believe that they wouldn’t know anything about it.  After all, video games frequently depict Nazi Germany, as well as movies.  The band Kiss’s logo was even banned in Germany because the s’s were considered to be too close to the Nazi symbol.  Anyway, here is the photo.  Decide for yourself.
