Ok AA has always been a recruiting tool with the "real heroes" being a big part of it either through the in game training or menus. Is there any chance for the next version to possibly get SFC Leroy Petry into the game or SSG Clinton Romesha?

Both are excellent examples of the US Army core values. I know this game is a while away but I'm also aware or what is involved going through a chain of command to get these men assigned TDY and the time it would take to to the actual in game part.

I think I earned the right to display my flag however I see fit. My views on the current administration and the state of my country have no bearing on my views of the Army I love so much or the nation I defended for so long.

You have a right to display your flag how you want - Yes

You served for the U.S military so I'm not sure why you would name yourself "_ihad" ? Still trying to figure that one out.........

Certainly did not say you didnt have the right. Just a mere observation. I too serve/served and typically bugs me to see things like that. Especially when I reflect on the sacrifices and obstacles I have accomplished for my country. But im sure you have your reasons. I certainly dont want to misdirect the purpose of your post. Petry and Romesha are good men. Hopefully see them implemented in the sequel.

it encompasses many interpretations, not all bad.

in it's lighter nature, it means "struggle". like, a "struggle" over cancer, over poverty, etc.

it goes to who uses it, and in the manner which shows their true colors. so, it does not always mean what you assume it to be.

so, let's not go into the whole dichotomy of all it's aspects, and just focus on what the topic is about, not who the topic is about.

so, that being said, back on topic: there's quite a few (non-disputed), living recipients of those who wear the Medal of Honor. their appearance in representing one of our highest values would not at all be a horrible thing. that is, if they are also willing.

I think we all know what the word "distress" means. Flying a flag upside down says something about your hope. Or lack of. Regardless of the variations, I took notice. Like I said, a simple observation, he provided what appeared to be a reasonable explanation. And that is that. I hope. <<<see what I did. lol

I thought the complaint was on his username?

again, let's not make this personal, or further discuss that issue. back on topic.

Ok as far as my username I'll clear it up right now. It is F**kYourJihad. Search either Steam or Xfire and you will find me. For the longest time I played as DeathStreak until my best friend was KIA in Trashcanistan. In honor of Ron, the 4 cousins I have currently serving in both the Army and the Corps and all my friends who are still active duty as well as every other person deployed I changed my name. Servers kinda frowned upon that name and I got kicked and banned quite often so I just shortened it to Jihad.

No I do not have anything against Muslims either. Almost without exception every single one I ever met in the Gulf, Africa or Kosovo were the nicest people I could ever hope to want to meet who would open their home to you and give you the shirt off their back.
