It’s the Subdued Flag, a uniform statement worn by many of those who served in Iraq and Afghanistan, as well as other conflicts.
This flag is not backwards, it’s assaulting forward.
Many people might mistake it for a tasteless tweak of our nation’s colors. It’s anything but that. It’s the combat flag of the men and women of our Armed Forces. It has become the unofficial flag of an entire generation of American war Veterans - a beautiful representation of all the sacrifices, tribulations, and experiences of American Service members.
Back of shirt features, "They were the best of times and they were the worst of times…and I’d never trade any of it."
