I do not know if anyone else will think that is as disgusting as I do, but I feel the need to bring it up.
I was helping my Great-Grandmother move recently when I came accross my Great-Grandfathers Old Glory in its case on a shelf.
My Great-Grandfather was in the U.S. Air Force and had been stationed in North Africa during World War Two. He passed away in September of 2001, and
this is the first time I really have been able to get a good look at his flag. Well, as we continue packing, I came across the black box for the case
containing Old Glory.
The first thing that catches my attention is the prominent white patch of the bar-code.
Of course, the first thing I see is "made in China." I could not believe it when I saw it. Here is the box meant to contain the flag of a
ex-serviceman of the U.S. Air Force, and it was made in China! This flag is meant to be a symbol of respect and honor for the deceased, and we have
another country produce it?!
Perhaps I am over-reacting, but I would like to hear what my fellow ATSers think about this.
