U.S. Navy Revives Old Rattlesnake Flag, 'Don't Tread On Me,' To Fly On All Vessels
The U.S. Navy is ordering its fleet to fly the defiant "Don't Tread on Me" rattlesnake flag aboard all its vessels to
emphasize America's determination in the war on terror, reports TIME magazine on Monday.
Navy Secretary Gordon England's directive said the resurrected flag "represents an historic reminder of the nation's and
Navy's origin and will to persevere and triumph."
