Made in USA: Pentagon to use only 100% American flags

U.S. Navy sailors lower an American flag on the U.S. aircraft carrier Harry S. Truman in the Gulf of Oman on Friday, Jan. 31, 2014. The Truman Strike Group of military ships carried out combined operations with a French navy task force led by the aircraft carrier FS Charles de Gaulle. Ships from the two navies worked together on maritime security operations and training exercises. (AP Photo/Hasan Jamali)It is the ultimate symbol of chest-thumping American patriotic pride and now the United States flag must be “100 percent made in the USA” — at least where the Pentagon is concerned. A new law requires the Department of Defense — a major consumer of flags for everything from ships to bases to burials — fly only flags wholly sourced from home shores. “My recently signed law makes sure every flag bought by the US Department of Defense is 100 percent Made in America, with American products,” Congressman Mike Thompson, whose district is home to a manufacturer of flags, wrote on his Facebook page.
