there is ONE truck/jeep at any U.S. military station.

the track is part of the flagpole. inside the truck is a .45 bullet, a razorblade, and a wind/moisture proof match.

if the installation was ever become over-ran, last man standing would go to the flagpole, open the truck/jeep, use the razor to quickly cut the flag down. the match was to set the flag ablaze so it could not be desecrated, and the .45 bullet was to quickly put your self "out of comission" before the enemy got to you.

Ok, over my head, didnt understand it in the first place. But as an American, I would do all of the above except putting a bullet in my head. If my installation was over run I would use that last bullet and put it into the next enemy soldier that I saw and go down with that .45 blazing.

Or you could put a pole on the vehical and put the flag on it, start the jeep/truck , and drive around running the enemy over.

Or you could drive away...

iirec the flag burning thing.
someone told marylin manson, no u cant its against the law http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/images/smiley/51.gif
so he looks up the law, and finds out if u declare the flag unworthy/unfit you can dispose of it.
one of the prefered methods is fire http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/images/smiley/16x16_smiley-very-happy.gif http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/images/smiley/88.gif http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/images/smiley/59.gif

It' legal to burn the flag, that's why some want an amendment to stop it. http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/images/smiley/52.gif

. . . and while I'm here. Nothing says PATRIOT like using the flag as a bug deflector for your truck or sticking a flag on a stick outside your car, leaving it out at night in the weather and unlit, and dragging it around town till it's half shredded. http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/images/smiley/353.gif I'll stop. http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/images/smiley/353.gif
