US Flag – Loss of Color at Trump Rally – NO DEALS/DEATH
There is no official definition of the term “loss of colors.” However, the term, in common usage, refers to the capture of a unit’s colors (flags) by the enemy in battle, or the taking away of a unit’s colors as a punishment or disciplinary measure.
“Colors” or unit standards have historically served as a means of identifying units of the battlefield. During the Civil War, men were trained to follow their colors in battle, to “rally” around them, and generally to use them to maintain unit cohesiveness. Unit colors were a great source of pride, and victories or defeats were often expressed in terms of colors being captured from or lost to the enemy. During the Civil War, many awards of the Medal of Honor were made for the capture or defense of colors. Even then, however units which lost their colors remained intact and continued to fight.
Modern warfare tactics do not call for rallying points in the open, with large numbers of men performing intricate maneuvers. Therefore, today’s armies use colors in ceremonies but do not carry them into battle. Official Army records contain no mention of any unit of the United States Army having lost its colors to the enemy during World War II, the Korean War, or the war in Vietnam. There is also no record of any unit having its colors taken away as a punishment for any action at any time in the history of the United States Army.
Trump and his hidden clues in tweets and truths and now flags, there is also a video of a flag at a Trump rally that had a blue stripe through it, which they’re saying represents supporting our police officers across the nation.
