I have been noticing over the years that I can spot one of my old military unit emblems on a hat or shirt from a long way off. For this reason, I try to wear hats with the emblems of my old units as much as I can in public. I have struck up many a pleasant conversation because I or someone else notice the flying colors. Even though the generations and conflicts may be different, the pride in the heritage of a unit, especially a combat unit flows through time and generations of Vets. Wear your colors in public, although most people won't know what they mean, they might just brighten up the day of a brother who also wore them. Just more of an old man's ramblings.
