I’m angry, I’m morally outraged and I’m just thoroughly disgusted! Today, I went to a local Mom & Pop gift store that I’ve been to many times. These pictures show what I found. OK, I get it, the American flag can be use as clothing. I still think it’s wrong and disrespectful.
What really got me was this child’s uniform! Ok, the Woodland camouflage pattern has been retired but still anyone looking at it knows it’s supposed to be a military uniform. Lord knows I wore mine with pride. What are they trying to show here? I find this extremely, extremely disrespectful!
As a female combat veteran, I’d never take my uniforms and deface them in this way. It’s a disgrace to my service and my way of life. I’d never allow my child to wear this no matter how cute and conflicted the visuals are. American’s generally take part in supporting the use of the flag. They either love America and the Armed Forces or they look the other way after realizing that all the brainwashed, home-grown terrorists are indoctrinated by the education system and mass media to feel outrage and wild-eyed oppression when presented with the flag. After all, to them the flag and our military represent “our fuckin’ oppression of nations around the world who would love us if only we’d give up our arms and surrender to the politically correct way of thinking”.
What do you think America?
We as Patriotic American’s have always loved representing our love for the Armed Forces and America the Beautiful in Baked goods…mmmm! Generally, this isn’t considered an act of subversion…
Want to know what you can do in your community as a Veteran? Well, read on and then join Team RWB!
Team Red, White and Blue connects Veterans to their communities with social and physical activities
Team RWB wants you to join the more than 160K Eagles across the nation.
Did you know that there are 3.5 million post-9/11 Veterans nationwide, and that 250,000 more service members will leave active duty this year to join them? These Veterans often face isolation, lack of physical fitness, and a lack of purpose in a world that doesn’t understand the military.
Team Red, White & Blue’s mission is to enrich the lives of America’s Veterans by connecting them to their community through physical and social activity. Utilizing a nationwide network of chapters, Team RWB hosts and participates in events designed to bring veterans together and engage in the communities where they live and work.
Whether it’s workouts, races, social activities or community service projects, Team RWB members, also known as Eagles, support each other through shared values and experiences; there’s probably an RWB chapter near you.
Joining Team RWB is easy
Visit the Team RWB homepage to sign up. New members also receive a free Team RWB Nike t-shirt ($5 shipping and handling charge). New eagles are also quickly connected to their local chapter to learn about upcoming local activities. More than 160K Veterans, their families, and non-military supporters have already joined Team RWB.
Team Red, White & Blue is a nonprofit founded by Veterans working to solve the epidemic of loneliness through physical activity. Team RWB is the bridge connecting communities where Veterans and civilians work together to gain common understanding.
Team RWB takes the best of military service–the camaraderie and physical challenges–and creates a new family of Eagles connected through physical activity.
“Staying active both physically and socially is key for a lot of Veterans, especially those who have been wounded, ill or injured,” said Tampa VAMC Chief of Recreation and U.S. Army Veteran Geoff Hopkins. “It’s very important for those Veterans with ‘invisible wounds,’ such as PTSD, to engage in activities in the community, to draw them out of their dark places and get them interacting with others. ”Take the 1776 Challenge (July 17-July 4) Independence Day is for celebrating our nation’s freedom. This summer, Team Red, White & Blue will showcase their commitment to the men and women who have fought for our freedom with the 1776 CHALLENGE.
Team RWB invites you to join all Team RWB Eagles across the nation. Whether you do it with someone else or weave it into your workout, you will know that thousands of others will be taking on that day’s unique challenge with you! Dedicate your hard work and sweat to celebrate our nation’s Veterans and their commitment to this great nation. Every time you “check in,” you will be entered into a chance to win prizes!
