Soldier's Shoulder Using Flags-A
Summary of the eRumor No text in this forwarded
email, but a story in pictures.
A U.S. soldier with the regulation U.S. flag at the top of his right
shoulder, then a patch that says "Doing the work of"
followed by the flags of Russia, Germany, and France, all countries
that declined to participate in the coalition forces in Iraq in
The Truth This is either a doctored picture or a real
picture that is part of a bit of humor on the soldier's part.
We have not found its origins or an explanation.
The American flag is authentic and is now able to be worn on the right
shoulder of soldiers in uniform and a move is afoot to require it.

accessories to soldiers, it is required that the American flag on a
uniform be displayed with the starts toward the front, as though it were
waving behind in the wind.
