only then will I will then fly my flag upside down to warn others this home is occupied by a hostile force, but NOT UNTIL THAT OCCURS!
The only way THIS home will be occupied by a hostile force is if I am a corpse. "Take bullets in your chest, but NEVER in your back!"
But I agree. No up-side-down flag flying. My grandpa, God rest his soul, would give me a good whooping if he knew I did that. He quit college and left a wife and 5 kids at home to be a foot soldier in WWII. He saw things he could never talk about, and earned himself many medals including the Bronze Star and the U.S. Army Combat Infantry Badge. He never received them until he was an old man, and even then was very hesitant to accept them. I remember looking at them and telling him I wanted to earn those medals too. He looked at me and said, "No you don't son, no you don't..."
Medical issues kept me out of the service.
There is hope for my 3 sons though.
