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.

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

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?
