A True Story, Best I Can Tell

I know this sounds like the stuff of urban legend, but I had someone tell me this story today, someone with no real interest in exaggerating, so I would tend to believe it.

He was Canadian-born, but recently became a U.S. citizen. At the ceremony, he was given a flag pin that, of course, said “MADE IN CHINA” on the backside.

There's not a single American source of flag pins anymore? I assume with all of the news anchors and politicians, there would be SOMEBODY who makes them domestically, just because.

    Great link, JThatcher (it’s a link to an American made flag association).

    I found this photo via google images of a China-made USA flag pin (it’s not the pin I’m referring to in the story).

    The US Army was buying berets made in China a few years ago. Then there was that surveillance plane incident…

    I believe the story is apocryphal. My wife was naturalized last year, with several hundred others, and there were no pins handed out at the ceremony.
