Being as patriotic as you are, you ought to know that the First Amendment prevents the Federal and State governments from infringing on citizen's rights to free speech, to worship freely, your freedom to peaceably assemble, and the press to report freely without government intervention.
It has absolutely nothing whatsoever to do with rules on a privately run and operated internet forum. I assume in the military you were not permitted to speak poorly of your superiors? Were you permitted to wear anything you please (commonly held to be freedom of expression?) This shouldn't be a foreign concept.
The First is about what the government is or is not permitted to restrict on its civilians, not what you are permitted to say or not say, and where you can or cannot say it. It doesn't follow you with every word you say or every word you type, no matter what.
