US Navy Posted, Then Deleted, Graphics of russian Warship and Jets in July 4 Celebration

Recommended Posts

The U.S. Navy posted, then deleted, a celebratory Independence Day image featuring Russian aircraft and a warship against an American flag background on Twitter, becoming the subject of mockery from social media users.

The image showed the silhouette of a saluting soldier in the foreground and the words “Happy 4th Of July,” while a silhouetted warship loomed in the background and five fighter jets flew in V-formation toward the top edge of the graphic, imposed over a faint rendering of a waving U.S. flag. Blake Herzinger, a defense researcher at the University of Sydney and a Navy Reserve officer, spotted the error and gave accolades to those of his followers who correctly identified the Russian assets featured in the photo.
