Dear fellow FReepers. I retired from the Army of this great nation on December 1st, 2005. I joined the Army at 17 and served 22 years and 20 days on active duty as a Military Policeman. My career culminated with my last two tours as a First Sergeant. My assignments included tours in Georgia, New York, Alabama, Missouri, Germany, South Korea, Panama, Haiti, and Iraq. Prior to settling in the beautiful Ozarks, I served with the mighty 1st Armored Division during Operation Iraqi Freedom I - Baghdad.

It was my distinct honor and privilege to serve the people of our nation as a Soldier. It was an even greater privilege to lead and care for the sons and daughters of America.

It has ALWAYS been illegal to desecrate the flag... we need ENFORCEMENT:

Title 18, USC
Sec. 700. Desecration of the flag of the United States; penalties

(1) Whoever knowingly mutilates, defaces, physically defiles, burns, maintains on the floor or ground, or tramples upon any flag of the United States shall be fined under this title or imprisoned for not more than one year, or both.
(2) This subsection does not prohibit any conduct consisting of the disposal of a flag when it has become worn or soiled.

(b) As used in this section, the term "flag of the United States" means any flag of the United States, or any part thereof, made of any substance, of any size, in a form that is commonly displayed.

(c) Nothing in this section shall be construed as indicating an intent on the part of Congress to deprive any State, territory, possession, or the Commonwealth of Puerto Rico of jurisdiction over any offense over which it would have jurisdiction in the absence of this section.

(1) An appeal may be taken directly to the Supreme Court of the United States from any interlocutory or final judgment, decree, or order issued by a United States district court ruling upon the constitutionality of subsection (a).
(2) The Supreme Court shall, if it has not previously ruled on the question, accept jurisdiction over the appeal and advance on the docket and expedite to the greatest extent possible.
