What’s with the flags?

Dear Editor,

I see guys driving around with big American flags, political flags and even Confederate flags flapping from the beds of their pickups. I wonder how many of these guys have actually served in the military? I would bet very few.

I served in the military — five years in Vietnam and three years in Germany. I don’t feel the need to have flags flapping from my vehicles to show my patriotism.

Also, regarding the recent controversy, I don’t think I am a “loser” or “sucker” for serving in the military.

Bruce Williams,
