10. It was the Readers' Digest.
The magazine sent them out as a premium to their subscribers. I don't remember the exact date, but it was in the Nixon years, I think-- certainly during the Viet Nam War. The message was to wear the pins to show support for the continuation of the war, at a time when public opinion was turning toward peace.

Prior to this giveaway, it was a violation of flag etiquette to wear any representation of the flag as clothing or jewelry. It still offends me.
