    I believe that's how it's actually worn in the military. Something about it being representative of the flag waving behind you. I'm sure there's some military folk here who can fill in details.

    Yeah, it symbolizes the troops advancing and the flag is flying "backward" against the wind.

    I thought the deal was the star field was always to be pointing towards your heart?
