Pentagon Must Buy Only American Made Flags

American Flag Pride
Evelyn Peyton

Most people probably just assumed that when the Pentagon spent our tax dollars on American flags, they were manufactured in the good old US of A. But most folks are wrong to assume that, until a few days ago! Imagine our military service men and women fighting under flags made in foreign countries!

The new policy, that went into effect last Friday, Feb. 21, says that materials and components of American flags have to now be made in the United States.This means more jobs for American workers, obviously! Why did it take all this time to figure out? Only in America!

The new change went through as part of the 1.1 trillion omnibus appropriations bill passed by Congress and signed into law by President Obama last month.
