If the content of the speech is of a personal opinion and does not reflect the official policy of the US government, then the speech should be done in civilian mufti and not in uniform, since the wearing of a uniform gives the impression that the speaker, and his views, are representing the Executive Branch of the government.

Military Members may state their opinion OUT of uniform as just Their opinion! BUT, In Uniform they must remember the UCMJ and follow the guidlines set for them and refer all official statements to the apropriate Base authority or face disiplinary actions so accorded.
