Flag-Patch Maker Charged


Federal prosecutor­s accused the sales manager of Moritz Embroidery Works in Mount Pocono, Pa., of conspiring to falsely claim that U.S. flag patches sold for military uniforms were made in the United States when they were made in Thailand. Brian Moritz’s company won a contract in 2004 to sell 3 million to 7.2 million shoulder patches to the Defense Department at 22 cents each.
