When worn on the left sleeve, the union would appear towards the front and the stripes would run horizontally toward the back. When worn on the right sleeve, it is considered proper to reverse the design so that the union is at the observerís right to suggest that the flag is flying in the breeze as the wearer moves forward.

Geez, taken right from the Army Regulations. Nice try there foilboy.

So the combat/no combat rule has changed. When I was in (87 to 96) a patch on the left shoulder indicated no combat..& the rignt (right side being the "weapon carrying/saluting" side) indiciated some minimum level of actual combat time served.


Actually as I type this I just rememberd that that rule is for unti insignia. Nevermind

edit: Doublenevermind. I just saw Majik's explanation.

See my above post: every flag has two sides. The stars are on the left on one side, the right on the other. It amazes me how stupid some people are to forget this fact.

Hey, that is my saying...... However in this case I grant you license to use it because that fucking imbecile has obviously been hitting the crack pipe way to hard and way to long.

I hate it when people think that small changes in something denotes a conspiracy. Like the "Illuminati" symbol on the back of the dollar. If there was a conspiracy to control you or slip in a Fascist regime YOU WOULD NOT BE AWARE OF IT. Clandestine meetings by evil people do not vote to drop you "hints" along the way. Regardless of what you'd like to believe.

to quote from it:

"The flag should never be dipped to any person or thing. It is flown upside down only as a distress signal. "

Who's the dumbass now?

Okay...I think we've all thoroughly owned Willy in this thread. I particularly liked the quotes from flag code, the several pictures of a "backwards" flag, and my own homework assignment for Willy.

But dear God please let this thread die!
