  1. Put all flags on the sun and stop eating junk foods/ / then and only then will Americans be safe from America's biggest threat. Some pencil pushing person made up a rule and it stuck.

  2. There’s no such thing as “reversed”
    If you see the flag flying on a pole from the right the blue field is on the right viewed from the left the it’s on the left
    It’s actually just logic
    Odd that the military figured this out on their own

  3. Boy, the person that wrote this article must be related to Donald Trump. When a flag is mounted on a flag pole the stars and blue background are always toward the pole. When you view the flag from the right side the stars are on the right. When you walk around to the left side of the pole the stars are on the left. This question about the flag on the uniforms must have been asked by a Republican dumbass.

  4. ,USAI like how you doing them now home modern time with the Americans you should do that looks like modern Germany modern countries country modern thing

  5. Field of blue Always to the left !! When being displayed. A man is not a flag pole . If their would be a compromise, then the patch should be wore on both left and right shoulders , OR CHEST OVER THE HEART OR ON THE BACK, I SEE THIS CHANGE AS A BIG ISSUE ! THAT DEMONSTRATES A CHANGE IN THE GOVERNMENT, AT THE SAME TIME A TEST , TO TRUE PATRIOTS. MAKING NEW RULES FOR DISPLAYING OUR GREAT NATIONS FLAG WERE SET FOURTH A LONG TIME AGO, AND SHOULD BE HONORED. ! AS INTENDED, WE THE PEOPLE SHOULD AND NEED TO TAKE BACK OUR GOVERNMENT…IT IS NOT FUNCTIONING THE WAY IT WAS MEANT TO BE …WE WERE WARNED…THIS COUNTRY IS A CORPORATION NOW , OUR RIGHTS HAVE BEEN UNDERMIND! OUR POLITICAL SYSTEM SHOULD NOT BE ABOUT CHOOSING SIDES AS ENTERTAINMENT OR BELIEF IN WHAT THEY ALLOW US TO KNOW. We live in a time that this world does Not need War . Their is a better way , do your own research use tour own brains and learn to think beyond what most sheep who sleep do. The American Dream . Has been manipulated…and mutilated…Rules are rules laws are laws , not statutes and codes …WAKE up …for YOUR children's sake for God sake…

  6. A Man is Not a flag pole, The illusion of perception, is only that , n who gives a crapp about what the enemy n what they would think , just because we are told who to FIGHT it's a bunch of crapp …the real enemy Lies within Our own system … and the ideals of one world government, Greed and deception is what is running our government now in a big corporate way , BUSINESS. Co exsist…in PEACE…honor the difference between the different nations , as long as their is peace , helping one another may be a good start to stopping greed for power and controll , wake up and do the research …its all been thought of figured out and computed , in other words their is a better way to being our children up….And Treat our environment, THE PLANET EARTH WE ALL SHARE FOR A TIME ,WHAT WE LEAVE THE CHILDREN IS UP TO ALL OF US…!
