As I recall, there is a general prohibition on political, and especially military symbols (other than the service you are in) for all branches of the US military. As the sign/poster you linked says, units are supposed to be unified and dedicated only to being what they are, not carrying other symbolic reminders around. There was a major court case a few years back over a non-chaplain Jew in the Navy wanting to wear a yarmulke on duty. He lost. Only the chaplains can wear them.
