acttimmy nailed it.
To the OP - I'm a veteran - there is a long list of things that bother me - this doesn't make the list by a long shot. If someone does/doesn't do something because they're concerned how "the veterans" will perceive it - that makes the list.

In defense of the OP I don't think he realized that flying the flag upside down wasn't being disrespectful of the flag.
With all the rules for flag flying and disposal, it would be easy to miss the "extreme distress" rule.
