Several readers have asked why I chose the Battle of Bennington Flag as the low key “OPSEC” identifier for SurvivalBlog readers. This was merely because that flag pattern is uncommon enough to stand out, yet it is nothing too controversial. (Versus, for example, a “Don’t Tread On Me” rattlesnake flag!) The Bennington flag does not have any particular historic significance vis-a-vis preparedness. But the flag looks cool, and after all, at Bennington, part of Burgoyne’s army got trounced.
By popular demand, I’ve just added Bennington Flag window/bumper stickers to my CafePress Stores. (They are also available by the 10 pack or 50 pack, at near my cost.)
