From an ol' Jarhead:

OUTSTANDING!

Now... consider making a trip to the Philippines and touring Corregidor and Bataan. I did that while on active duty in the early 1980's and I suspect a person could still tour those areas. While on Corregidor I went through the famous Malinta Tunnel, saw the huge mortars and guns, many of which were still in place, though of course badly rusted after 40 years exposure to the tropic clime...

There was also a most impressive museum that was a tribute to the Battle of Bataan and the march...

It's been a long time since I was there, but I remember being awed by what I was seeing. MacArthur did come back, and the Filipino people did remember.

Your grandfather was part of a very important piece of history and I think you've honored him greatly. Has made me think about my own Jeep, and honoring my father, my uncle and my grandfather, all of whom served in the Pacific. Dad is still alive. I may get some input from him on how to best do this.

Thanks for the great idea, and once again: OUTSTANDING!

Guy

Just realized my photos in this thread have disappeared. I'm posting them again so the thread makes more sense to anyone who happens upon it.

Charlie, I am not a vet but I have known many vets including some with Pearl Harbor and Normandy experience, and I realize I am free to do as I please (like drive my Jeep) because of what they have done. If I ever see your JK you will get a big thumbs up from me. Nice Job!

By the way, can you post a shot of the whole rig?

It's a mostly stock 2012 Arctic Edition JK. Only real mods have been to the front end.

If anybody ever tells you the one on your passenger side is backwards just say 'no- its assaulting forward!' Same as the flags on the sleeves of our uniforms. Great looking Jeep!

Im not a CSM I'm a SGT but my first name starts with a C and Im a Smith haha! Anyways nice looking Jeep. If I militarize my YJ Im going to stencil household 6 on the passenger side of the windshield. Also I think a Guzzoline Only stencil by the fuel filler would be something different and unique as well.

This is the medal that the Bataan Death March survivors received. It would look good painted on the Jeep.

This medal was awarded by the state of New Mexico to the members of the 200th Coast Artillery, who were based in that state and fought in Bataan. My Grandfather was the 27th Bomb Group(L) based out of Georgia.

The only medal my Grandfather has from Bataan is the Bronze Star Medal.

I have thought about having my first assignment Division emblem made into an emblem to stick on my JK.

But? I am not so sure if I will continue to support its cost thanks to my state government and insurance cost.

On the topic of patches, I have to show off the baddest squadron patch on the planet.
