    Kudos to Brent.

    Off-topic, but: does anyone know when and why it became normal to depict the American flag *backwards* on military uniform patches (Blue field on the upper right)?

    It should only look backwards on the right arm. The idea is it that it should be as if it’s streaming behind the soldier — think of a flag held in his right hand as he runs forward and how that would look.

    Ah.

    Thanks — it now makes sense to me!
