A former SEAL says the Navy won't allow SEALs to wear "Don't Tread on Me" badges on their uniforms — possibly because they look too much like the emblem of the tea party.

"At first I thought it was a mistake. I kind of ran through every scenario I could possibly think of," Carl Higbie told "The Steve Malzberg Show" on Newsmax TV.

Story continues below video.



"It's part of our heritage," he said Tuesday. "It was our proverbial battle cry . . . This is the history since the Revolutionary War . . . our War of Independence."

Higbie, author of "Battle on the Home Front: A Navy SEAL's Mission to Save the American Dream," said that while military brass deny there is a ban, he thinks it is real and a test of today's men and women in the service.

"They're seeing how far they can push, and they're seeing who will push back," he said.
