    Default SWJ / SWC Coin Motto Vote-Off

    Okay, as promised here are the two finalists for the SWJ / SWC Coin motto - will let this vote stay open for two weeks - so have at it.

    Option 2 is Boots on the Ground - Eyes on the Population - Mind on the Mission (poll character limitation above)

    I know it is too late, but I still like this line: "Though it starts with your fist, it must end with your mind."

    Default The results are (drum roll please)...

    ... Historia Magistre Vivae (History is our Teacher) on one side and Boots on the Ground - Eyes on the Population - Mind on the Mission (in English) on the other side.

    We still have to go through the logistics (and funding) to get the coins produced... Will keep everyone abreast of developments.

    Default Great compromise

    I'm happy to see the "boots on the ground" mantra made it onto the coin.

    Default Yahoooo!!!!!!

    Dave,Jcutis and all who voted thanks a lot!!! I was getting worried that Tom Odom was going to slip his Pet Rock in.
    What a way to end the week, tomorrow will be a good day.
    I was thinking if you want to change eyes on the population to "eyes on the people" it will save some space. Hope they can be finished before XMAS, I can do all my shopping with one gift, well most of it anyway.

    Dave, where's the beef?

    I recall a post or e-mail about supplier problems.....

    In any case, I'd need to forward a new mailing address to the "powers" when it gets closer to release time.

    Ars longa, vita brevis (skill development takes time but life is short) - seems to be the flip side of the coin, no pun intended, given the situation on the ground in Iraq and the political climate in America

    It's a little long but it might work.

    I am the guilty bastard.

    I was talking to the coin lady two weeks ago and have the junk I need to get it running again.

    I have been notoriously unreliable for all deadlines for many many months now. But I have given up my reserve command, am almost out from under several crushing weights, and hope to be producing on all fronts soon. This being one of them.
