God bless America.

Maybe if people keep repeating the message, more people would end up learning the correct way.

Bang your drum cowboy, bang away. I'll just enjoy my stickers and press on.

Mine!


The way I see it, a Jeep is like sex-when it's good it's terrific, and when it's bad it's still pretty good!

On the backwards flag, from USFlag.org ...and YES I know a Jeep is not a uniform, but maybe the owner is a vet or seen it before...

""Thank you for your inquiry about the proper placement of the American flag on the uniform of the U.S. Armed Forces.

Army Regulation 670-1, “Wear and Appearance of Army Uniforms and Insignia,” updated most recently September 5, 2003, addresses explicitly the proper and lawful placement of the U.S. flag patch on the Army uniform.

The regulation states that when authorized for application to the proper uniform the American flag patch is to be worn, right or left shoulder, so that “the star field faces forward, or to the flag’s own right. When worn in this manner, the flag is facing to the observer’s right, and gives the effect of the flag flying in the breeze as the wearer moves forward. The appropriate replica for the right shoulder sleeve is identified as the ‘reverse side flag’.”

I think we all need to calm down with getting worked up over the flag code... it's hard enough finding patriotic people nowadays (not that I've been alive long enough to know other days)...

Regardless I'm going to edit my first post to include the flag code so it doesn't need to be brought up again!

Chris. I miss driving my Jeep. Can't wait to get into another one.
