I was in and around New Orleans post Katrina as newly minted 18 year old PFC, but I didn't here about the confisication debacle until way later. Like years later.
I love the Army, and I love being a Soldier, but I don't think anything would have me rip off my American flag patch and walk away in discuss so quick as an unlawful order like that.
(And maybe slap on a Gadsen flag patch and run about shouting Wolverines)
"Growing up as both a Southern and the son of a child of the '50s, I was imprinted with several things that have long stuck with me. The F-86 Saber Jet was the finest fighter ever flown, the National League is always superior, and Leslie Coffelt
was the finest revovler shooter since Mr. Ed."
