aint that the truth
Not a slam to Servicemen, but isn't the flag backwards?
And if I'm wrong, (ALWAYS a possibility) can someone tell me why it goes that way ?
Thanks to Okie for all the great jokes.
I look forward to reading then every day after work.
Yes, it is. However, it has become common practice to display the flag backwards, when displayed on the right side of moving objects such as planes, tanks, hummers, and even people. It is supposed to simulate (I guess) the relative wind causing the flag to stand out, as the person is moving foward. Just as if you were looking at the backside of a flag on a flagpole. I don't especially like to see it displayed that way, but the intentions are still honorable.
Here is a link to the U.S. Flag Code, which contains proper flag etiquette: http://www.usflag.org/us.code36.html
You are very welcome my friend. I try my best
Good one, Okie.;f
Yep, HeyMoe is correct. Simulated windblown flag on moving vehicles and people.
I first noticed it on US troops in Afganistan.
