LETTER TO THE EDITOR-COMMANDER POST #33
Thank you, members of Post #33, your donation helped enable me to attend the Civil Air Patrol Glider Encampment where I received 4.5 hours of air instruction and 30 hours of ground instruction. During my 4.5 hours of flying, I was instructed in stalls, spins, turns, landings, and takeoffs. I am looking forward to going solo at the advanced encampment, and over the course I learned a lot about teamwork, flying, and myself. Once again I thank all of you at AmVets Post #33.
Sincerely, Sam Mussmann (student)
(from LET’S BE RIGHT ON FLAG ETIQUETTE – pages 1-1)
Question: May a Flag patch be worn on a jacket?
Answer: No. According to the Code, only members of the military, firemen, policemen, or patriotic organizations may wear a Flag patch on their uniform. Use of the Flag patch on costumes, athletic clothing, or casual wear is inappropriate.
Question: What is the correct way to wear a replica of the Flag as an arm patch on the American Legion uniform?
Answer: By resolution, the Flag patch, when placed on an American Legion uniform, may be placed at the shoulder of either sleeve as long as the blue field is forward. Additionally, no emblem, name or patch shall be worn above the Flag patch on the same sleeve. The decision as to the sleeve on which the patch is to be worn is left to the judgment of the individual, Post or Color Guard involved. This proviso pertains only to the uniform of the American Legion. As the provision of the Flag Code does not specify how the Flag patch is to be worn, any other organizations may apply the Flag patch as they deem appropriate. This includes members of the military, fire, police, or patriotic organizations. (NEC Resolution 38, May 1986)
