American Samoa at DNC roll call photo & caption

Two soldiers in uniform in the background during the American Samoa roll call at the DNC

ABC News is reporting that U.S. soldiers appearing in uniform from American Samoa during the roll call at the Democratic National Convention was an ‘oversight’, according to a convention official.  The scene raised eyebrows because U.S. military personnel are not supposed to participate in political events while in uniform. A Pentagon spokesman reaffirmed that policy on Wednesday in response to an ABC News question about the incident. Samoa News will update this story as more information becomes available.
