Heh how about continuing the FRL kick with "Free Corps" patches?
Patches sound like an awesome idea because they will fit in an envelope. I naively pictured myself standing in line at the post office just once or twice.
Everyone's hat has now been mailed except for Raptor48's which will go out early next week.
yeah. I could go for patches too!
also have you ever considered the idea of pins? like specifically campaign pins for the various theaters of operations 'ol bluehair himself completed.
authentic looking pins would probably be quite expensive if they're to be more than cheap smooth buttons.
I wonder if we could get a deal if we put several together with the help of our local artists? I'm sure a 'Claw, Concordia, Victory, Free Corps, Vega Campaign, etc would be popular with those who would want them.
I need some more patches for my jacket. I suggest making the Confederation and Border Worlds logos.
I got the hat in today, and it looks great. Thanks for all the work, mcgruff.
Heh I think we've found an activity that will keep us busy for a while
I would totally be in for campaign ribbons. That would be a lot of fun to design, debate, etc.
There could be achievements for certain engagements, campaigns, service on ships, etc. Not a bad idea at all!
I found the perfect expanation for whenever someone ask me about my new hat-
My Hat arrived today, and let me say it is awesome! Thank you very much!
I don't think pretending to have served your country is ever a perfect explanation for anything.
I find that telling people my grandfather served in the Navy, and made me a fan (of the Navy) is generally enough to keep people from believing that I serve myself.
It's pretty fantastic, actually. Usually the guys that ask are the old World War II vets and they always take the time to share some piece of their memory of the war when they hear about my Grandfather.
That was a joke, I stumbled across it while I was reading some stuff on wikipedia. I AM going to join the Navy as soon as I graduate high school. Going to try to get oin the Special Entry and Amphibious Landing teams. I just love the way that sounds...
Haliwali, you ever consider going officer?
There actually is a Wingnut who served on the USS Tarawa. If you search the front pages news you'll come across some pictures and stuff he sent in years ago.
Later maybe. If I enlist first I can just have the Navy pay for my college, and I'll also be able to maximize my time in the service.
For the record, some time during the 9 days I was on vacation, my hat arrived at my post office and waited patiently for my return.
It is amazing! and I'm still looking for a good place to put that bumper sticker!
On the back of your Centurion of course!
OOh.... any of the Tarawa hats left?
I'd love to get a pair of them (one for me, one for my buddy).
Yeah, I know I'm fresh meat on the message board, but I have a ebay account on the same name, and can be found out on www.star-ranger.com if you need additional verification.
