Cotton grows in the pods of the cotton plant and is filled with small, sticky seeds. A machine harvests the raw cotton and pulls in even more contaminants: sticks, burs and other impurities.

Removing this debris takes multiple steps that become increasingly refined along the way. The more you can refine the cotton, the better it will feel on your skin and the longer it will last.

The first stages of refining cotton include using centrifugal force and tumbling. But to remove the smallest impurities, you have to do a lot more.

Combed cotton is just what it sounds like. The cotton is literally combed through to remove short, protruding fibers and leave only longer fibers that are softer and less prone to breaking. The process creates a luxurious cotton used in premium apparel.

Ring spinning takes this a step further. The cotton yard is spun in a specially designed process that softens the cotton and straightens each fiber.

The result is an extremely high-quality t-shirt that is comfortable and built to last.

U.S. Army uniforms show the flag as if it is flying in the breeze while the person wearing it moves forward. This symbolizes the onward advance of battle.

In fact, Army regulations require that the blue field of stars on the flag be placed in the highest position of honor. So yes, if the flag is on a wall, that means the top left. But if the flag is on a moving object like a person or a vehicle, the front is actually the highest position of honor.

The tradition goes back to early Army history when a standard bearer would be sent into battle carrying the flag. His rapid forward momentum would cause the flag to flutter backwards, serving as a patriotic inspiration for soldiers heading into battle.
