    The flag isn't a bad thing. For me it would depend on why they removed the rifle?

    Since the flag represents America and America represents freedom and freedom is guaranteed by Citizens owning arms...

    Well I do not have to even wonder why they removed it, a bunch of gutless bubblegums are running the show now.

    One thing is for sure, the snowflakes of today would be hard pressed to demonstrate the intestinal fortitude for "Turning The Tide."

    I haven’t bought stamps in 7-8 years, so I’m out of the stamp Outrage loop. :D

    I have those stamps, didn't notice....

    Now I'm annoyed.

    Some things are just better when I don't know.

    Surprised it isn't a rainbow flag seeing as how Old Glory is a racist, intolerant symbol these days.

    When I am postmaster general there is going to be a “guns that made America” series. And an AR15 stamp for sure. Sorry AK fans.

    Whatever era , there is no shame in being an Infantryman...
    Riflemen , taking and holding ground are what wins wars.

    The removal of the rifle from the hands of the rifleman on the stamp is insulting and a affront to those who have served as Infantrymen...after all it was the rifle , in the hands of those who have been trained in its use , that won the battles of The Meuse Argonne...Chateau Thierry...and many others...

    Funny thing is that the collar brass and sleeve braid identify this soldier as an officer- who most likely would have been armed with a pistol.

    I noticed that too the stamps I bought a few weeks ago looked slightly strange and that the flag was held like a gun..

    Honestly, I think it's a good thing, as that soldier looks a little racially ambiguous to me... It's always good to know who's soldiers you are supporting! :p

    Oh, for God's sake!
    Damn snowflakes.

    The only tide turning they can do is turn Tide pods into breath mints.
    With predictable results.:confused:
