AAP Platoon Mom Kathleen Salmas

AAP Platoon Mom Kathleen Salmas has been supporting Army soldiers of 321st Field Artillery Regiment deployed to Afghanistan. Their words describe why we do this patriotic work on behalf of our Nation’s Heroes. “I would like to Thank You for the unprecedented support my platoon has received from you! Your generosity, support and willingness to help…



Holidays can be very difficult for our deployed Troops! Let’s bring a little home to them by either sewing or buying Christmas stockings and mailing them to a small group or a platoon of Troops! You can fill them with surprises of holiday candy, socks, hot chocolate or hot cider packs, hand-held games, word puzzles with a holiday pen, travel-size toiletries. Use your imagination to make this a special gift. Don’t forget to add a holiday card for each stocking with your name so they know they are not forgotten! The deadline to send stockings to the Troops in time for Christmas is December 12th.  Check out the Stockings for Santa Campaign.

Why is the U.S. flag worn “backwards” on the uniform?

Army Regulation 670-1 , Wear and Appearance of Army Uniforms and Insignia , is the governing authority for the wear of Army uniforms. Paragraph 28-18 governs the wear of the United States Flag on Army Uniforms.

The flag may only be worn on the utility and organizational uniforms (such as the camouflage BDU). The flag may only be worn during joint-duty and multinational deployments. When the servicemember returns to home station, the flag must be removed. (Guide Note: A message went out in February 2004 changing this restriction, and making the U.S. Flag a mandatory uniform componant for all soldiers, effective October 1, 2005
