Membership in the Sergeants Major Association allows veterans to maintain that special bond among warriors that has been developed while on active duty, in peace and in war.  History tells us that, as the years pass, these relationships become even more important, especially among veterans who have shared the rigors of combat.​​

 Means a lot to us and it means a lot to” American families “who had their service member come home to them in a casket with that [flag] draped over it.” Some people suggest soldiers die so that others might have the freedom to burn our flag is a bunch of crap. To suggest that a soldier might die so that others can have the freedom to do something wrong goes against everything the soldier stands for. Those who think soldiers die to defend flag-burning misunderstand freedom’s true nature.

Step on it ~ Burn it ~ or whipe your ass with it. Currently, its not illegal in the United States.

 On June 11, 1990, the Supreme Court ruled that burning the flag was an example of constitutionally protected free speech.​
