God bless you USMC. If I could knock 30 years off my age I would be there with you. We thank you!

WOW. My absolute favorite flag (besides Old Glory) in one of my least favorite places.

So very good to see our beautiful troops showing our real, not Hollywood culture and history, to the world.

We should now, after this Official Use, re-activate this great and meaningful Flag of OURS, and use it, wear it, speak about it...from now on. I certainly will.

Does anybody know where I could get a T-Shirt of it...and/or a Bumper Sticker to distribute in NYC...and to our Guardsmen at our bridges and tunnels?

This T-Shirt would look great with a tuxedo. Freedom Rings...doesn't it.

Happy New Year, world. We're coming.

Thank you a million times for posting this. The "Don't Tread on Me" flag is so appropriate, and so un-PC! :^)

Cool. I wonder if they're playing Metallica over the loudspeakers?

It is my understanding that all American flags, past or present are official flags worthy of flying. Also, one is to pay the same respects to past flags as if they were the current.

Old Glory, Don't Tread on Me and flag pole built like a Christian cross at the Kandahar airport. It does not get any better than this.

Does anybody know where I could get a T-Shirt of it.

I have several, including a sweatshirt, but they're not available anymore. Maybe someone else is making them now, though. Let us know if you find one!

This isn't exactly what you asked for, but it's close. Follow this link, scroll down just a bit and look on the left side of the page. You'll see a "Don't Tread On Me" US postal stamp replica. Click on it to see what is available (t-shirts, sweatshirts, etc.)

Click here.
