There are so many things unknown to us about our own military, let alone the U.S. Military.
But for those who don't know, the flag patch on the U.S. Military uniforms are reversed. Does that make you wonder why? (It did make me wonder for sure!)
So, here's the reason for the former.
According to a provider, Army regulation 670-1 explains that the American flag patch has to be worn on the left or right shoulder so that the stars on the flag face forward.
The flag patch on the uniform must resemble to a flying flag being carried by a soldier in the breeze while moving forward on a battlefield.
The display of the colors red, blue and white defeats the purpose of wearing camouflage.
Not only on the U.S. Military uniforms, these reversed flags can also be seen at most of the airports.
The flag will be reversed on the right side of an aircraft for the same reason of the patch being displayed on a soldier's uniform.
Well, now you know something and something's better than nothing at all!
Isn't it always great to know something interesting?
Just like this one, the U.S. military has many fascinating traditions you'll love to know!
