    Well, I guess I missed a lot.
    I remember them as The Confederate Air Force.

    So when do the Stars and Bars get outlawed?

    b o is working on it, as well as Old Glory...thinks the Nat. Anthem should also be changed as bombs bursting in air and rockets red glare are a little much.

    I think that when you start banning Confederate, we lose a very important part of our culture and our single greatest tearing apart of this country. The Civil war needs to always be remembered as the the War of Northern Aggression, when the republicans were the bad guys.

    That's NOT the Stars and Bars. That's the Battle Flag. The Stars and Bars was the nickname for the First Confederate Flag. It was similar to Old Glory, and the two wold be confused on the battlefield, so they took the St. Andrews Cross and modified it to the Confederate Battle Flag.
    Look up 1st Confederate Flag.

    I hate the CAF changed their name. There is a squadron just up the road, home of the B-25, "Show Me".
    EDITED...I accidently posted 3rd instead of 1st.
