Mastriano wore Confederate uniform for faculty photo

CARLISLE, Pa. — Pennsylvania GOP gubernatorial nominee Doug Mastriano posed in a Confederate uniform for a faculty photo at the Army War College, three years before he retired from the U.S. Army.

Reuters said Friday that Mastriano was in the uniform in a 2013-14 portrait for the Department of Military Strategy, Plans and Operations, where he worked until he retired in 2017.

The Army War College said a team in 2020 had reviewed all art, text and images displayed at the Carlisle barracks but missed the faculty photo.

It said the photo “has since been removed because it does not meet AWC values.” Mastriano did not immediately respond to requests for comment.
