The Flag of the Three Percent flies (literally) over Afghanistan


This just in from Afghanistan:

Gentlemen,

I received your package in the mail the other day, I want to thank all of you for your generosity. I have never seen grown men go so nuts over coffee. I have handed out most of the patches and we have been wearing them while were flying (obviously can't wear them on our uniforms because old 1SG's get upset). I have attached a picture of us flying the 3% flag through the Mountains of Afghanistan.

Once again thank you for all of your support,

CW2 (Redacted)

Now THAT made me smile big. For me personally, the best part was that it gave those heroes of ours something to cheer about over coffee. Hooah!

I think I'll make that photos the new background for this laptop. Thank you for this, Mike. Thank you very much.

Thanks for the best news so far this year. Love that photo. From an old Army aviator to all our troops with a conscience.

But don't you know that all this III stuff in the military is all faked? That's obviously a model in someone's backyard in Arkansas.

So what could be better than a III flag flying on an Army chopper over Afghanistan? Same flag, same chopper flying over Washington DC.

I don't care if helos are a formation of vibrating pieces all trying to fling themselves apart, that photo is a morale boost.
