Doug Lockwood I was going to try to add the flags like you do to his profile but the information I got has a different Regiment how do I put the right Regiment and duty he did,  look it over if you get a chance Thanks,

Select edit & you will see the template info for regiment. Just delete current regiment, add the new info & save.
Ok I just didn't know exactly how to change it but if you get a chance just look at the profile and see if I need anymore corrections Thank's I'm trying to learn everything I can.
