    Why do the servicemen wearing the flag patch have the field in the upper right?

    The reverse flag dates back to the Army’s early history when both cavalry and infantry units would charge ahead as the Stars and Stripes streamed back. When moving forward, therefore, the star field is always to the front as the red and white stripes flow to the back in the breeze. Today, the reverse flag is worn on the right sleeve of military uniforms and symbolizes the courage and respect of those who serve.

    You're amazing, Romey. that's a better answer than any American could give . I never noticed the flag on the uniforms either.
