Do you know why the American Flag is worn reversed field on military uniforms? Here’s the official explanation: regulations state that the American flag patch is to be worn, right or left shoulder, so that the star field faces forward. When worn in this manner it gives the effect of the flag flying in the breeze as the wearer moves forward.”

Backward FlagThis placement ensures that when the military are charging forward, our flag will appear to be charging forward, with them, never retreating.
You’ll often see embroidered patches with the reverse field and if placing on a sleeve, the proper style should be utilized.
We all have the responsibility to support and maintain the “brand” of America. Just as the flag is not meant to be stagnant in a glass case, we as a people should strive to move forward and never forget to honor the men and women who proudly wear the “backwards” flag.

See you on the highways and byways!
