I'm proud to be an American and believe that the Flag patch on the BDU's makes the uniform look more professional. It also shows where were from for those who need US CAP on the name tape.

I think the flag idea goes away from our "Air Force" appearance. This is widely viewed as an Army tradition, and I see no reason for CAP to continue it. When I first read they were doing this, I was a little frustrated. Though we should be patriotic, and have pride in our nation, this is a way I feel is not needed. You are already a part of a volunteer organization that goes out of their way to help in the aid of many missions. There is no need to wear the flag, we are 99.9% of the time on our turf, and even overseas, on a military post. Even in IACE you do not wear the bdu's, so what purpose does the flag really pose?

Personally the program has larger issues than uniform "bling." I used to be all for it, but after progressing higher in the "food chain" I've realized that bling isn't what we need. Better training, and recruiting go above this in my book... Call me old school, I don't care, I am set in my ways.

I still like having the US Flag on my uniform....

My opinion is that if you wanna talk about "old school" then wearing the flag would be part of it. I don't know quite how recruiting and wearing the US flag connect. Yes recruiting and excellence is important but wearing the US flag doesn't really aid or a bait it.
