    vnvet1968, Happy New Year!

    Since all three flag poles are the same height, the arrangement as you described is correct according to the "Order of Preference For Flag Display". Viewed from left to right facing the building should be the American flag, the state flag, then the military flag. As a Vietnam era vet myself, I am familiar with this display arrangement. If you have any further questions, research the order of preference on the web.

    Hi, VNVet1968, and welcome to the USA-FLAG-SITE Forums!

    If the triangular flagpole arrangement were "reversed" so that two of the flagpoles were nearest (and parallel to) the building's wall, with the third (singular) flagpole to the outside and closest to the viewer, I believe that the U.S. Flag should be on THAT pole since it is "out front" of the other two. The Texas State Flag would then be hung on the back-left flagpole, and the 101st Airborne Division Flag.

    But..... It is what it is, the way it is, right?

    FWIW (For What It's Worth): I have NEVER seen this particular triangular flagpole arrangement, and I have NO idea what they were thinking when they placed them in that particular configuration. Oh, Well.....

    Good Luck with everything! And Thank You for bringing your Flag-related question to our Forums!
