Why do soldiers wear a BACKWARDS American flag patch?

why do soldiers wear the american flag backward

Look down below at that picture of two brave soldiers. The one on the left is wearing a BACKWARD American flag patch. The stars appear on the right side of the flag, not the left! But the soldier on the right is wearing a “normal” American flag patch. The stars appear on the left side of the flag, where we usually see them.

So what’s going on here??!!

why do soldiers wear the american flag backward

The difference is the arm that the flag is worn on. If the American flag is worn on the right arm, the American flag will appear “backwards” with the stars on the right. If the American flag is worn on the left arm, the American flag appears “normal” with the stars on the left.

This is not just some random military tradition. It has to do with honoring the bravery of soldiers who are facing down an enemy and how the Stars & Stripes fly when one rushes into battle.

Back in the old days, America’s military had flag bearers on the battlefield. When these flag bearers rushed into battle with the troops, the American flag would fly from its pole with the stars always in the front. The stars always “led the way.”

The military no longer uses flag bearers in battle, but flags do “fly” on the uniforms of our brave men and women of the Armed Forces.

Take a look at this picture below of a flag bearer from the old days.

why american flags are worn backward

See how the flag is flying in the wind? And notice how the stars lead the way. If you see a flag bearer running into battle from that person’s left (as you look at that person’s left shoulder), the stars will be on the left side of the flag. This matches how the American flag is worn on a soldier’s left arm.

If you run to the other side of the battlefield and see the same flag bearer from the reverse side, the stars of the American flag will now be on the right. Again, the stars lead the way.

why american flags are worn backward

If the stars on the right arm were to be on the left side of the flag, that could be interpreted to mean that the soldier is running away from the battle. This would be a sign of cowardice and unbecoming of an American soldier! So this is why the stars are on the right. This is why, on the Stars & Stripes, STARS LEAD THE WAY. Always.

The next time you see a soldier wearing that backwards American flag, think of it as a reminder of that person’s bravery. That soldier is fighting for our freedom, and the stars always lead the way.

VIDEO: Ralph Williams Chrysler Plymouth Commercial – 1960s

Ralph Williams Chrysler

Who remembers Ralph Williams in the San Francisco area? Big time car dealer! This is one of the greatest commercials ever seen and it only aired once. During the late 60s, most television programs and commercials were live. There were no “pre-recorded” programs. There were some   obvious problems with this method. No “retakes” and “bloopers” were a   regular occurrence.  The salesman quit right after this commercial.   This is no blooper! This salesman was just very upset with his boss and told it like he thought it was. What a great job of ad-libbing. He   never misses a beat while, if you listen carefully, you’ll hear the cameraman   and soundman lose it.   The commercial got on the air, but only once!

3200 YEARS IN ONE PHOTOGRAPH

Sequoia National Park Amazing

~ AT SEQUOIA NATIONAL PARK ~

       Thankfully, no loggers took it down, nor forest fires or earthquakes!  Just a quiet life in a California forest for all these years …. 3,200!

Not every tree has a nickname, but ‘The President’ has earned it.
This giant sequoia stands at 247 feet  tall & is estimated to be over 3,200 years old.Imagine, this tree was already 700 years old during the height of ancient Greece’s civilization and 1200 years old when Jesus lived and Rome was well into its rule of most of the western world and points beyond.
The trunk of The President measures at 27 feet across,
with 2 BILLION needles From base to top.
  Because of its unbelievable size, this tree has never been photographed in its entirety, until now. National Geographic photographers have worked along with scientists to try and create the first photo that shows the President in all its glory.

   They had to Climb the tree with pulleys and levers, and took thousands of photos. Of those, they selected 126 and stitched them together, to get this incredible  portrait of the President.  And here it is:

The man standing near the trunk of the tree is a good indicator of the tree’s size.

  Incredible, isn’t it?
