    Default SWJ and SWC T-Shirts?

    Would owning a SWJ or SWC T-Shirt be super cool?

    As senior elected officials say when asked the boxers or briefs question: "Depends".

    Can you toss out some visuals? And Selil's avatar is a non-starter.

    Actually, my vote would go for the pic in the top left. Either that or the one that LTC (R) Odom is using for his avatar now.

    SFC W

    PS. J. Wolfsberger has an awesome avatar also but I could see copyright problems with that one.

    However being the Economic detective that I am, we have another option......like all empires we could print our own money!!!!!!SWC Dollars part of the SWC Empire. Instead of in god we trust, we could print......Boots on the ground.....eyes on the people ......Mind on the Mission.....in Latin as I recall........Bill,Dave you feeling me man

    Default I posit the graphic...

    should be of a swaggering handsome gent brandishing a scimitar in which to impress two burqua clad damsels...

    Umar, Make it a Crusader with the cruciform sword and the burqa clad ladies and we'll really make a splash.

    Here's how it might look on a t-shirt.

    "of the war" seems to break the cadence - my perception.

    is probably copyrighted, since it's the title of a 1974 movie. Sounds like a wacky movie from the Wiki.

    I took copyright in 1967, so my opinion in that legal area is worthless.

    I was thinking about making up a t-shirt and bumper sticker for myself.
    Support our troops!

    Replace the M855 5.56mm Ball cartridge with the MK 262 Mod 0, 5.56mm 77 Grain LR!

    Maybe I could get that printed onto a magnetic ribbon, as well (stopping power awareness).

    I agree. It needs to be streamlined a bit.

It was one of the most famous cases there was....they forgot to copywrite it so all these imatation cards started showing up in schools around 1966 or 1967 I am the proud owner of one. carried it all during my time in the 82nd. I don't know how it was finally resolved maybe you can find out?
