However, this really wouldn't be enough. I would need to make my fiance put on a road guard vest and kevlar and walk in front of me as a ground guide any time I drove around the neighborhood. As it turned out, this was not that popular of an idea in my household? What can I say. Girls are weird.
Haha, you "played the game" so much, you miss it. I feel ya.

seggg Just something simple.. But the one decal that always means the most is supporting our brothers and sisters in arms, fallen or wounded.

Besides, the new black and white standard Texas plates look better. Unfortunately, the Air Force doesn't seem to see value in tradition as much as the other services.

I feel the same way about the new ARMY logo. ARMY OF ONE my ass

Wish NH would do service specific plates. We get a generic plate saying vet with the flag on it.

Beastmaster I'm in agreement with what looks like the majority here: You make a generic military tribute out of your Jeep, that's cool. You try to make it personal by claiming you are something you are not is just plain wrong.

I think Call of Duty, GI Joe, Halo (and the list goes on) tributes are all fair game.

In my mind it's almost as bad as putting Purple Hearts on his jeep. These things were earned not given. I'm not saying people can't do replicas or pay homage to jeep or military history, but it's distasteful to represent something you have no idea about and haven't earned when there are still soldiers dying with that patch on.

Rusty Pancelode This is interesting...
I never thought to add a PACAF decal to the Jeep.
That's something I might consider.


I don't care what anyone puts on their Jeep, but I would be disappointed to see a unit patch on a non-veteran's Jeep.
Liars are liars though, and there's nothing that I can say that will change that.

In other words military insignia should not reflect on the person if not a vet but if it reflects on a time the Jeep was military, so be it.

Needless to say, he removed it before he left the parking lot. Being respectful is one thing but passing yourself off as a vet is another thing. He did give me the idea for when I redo my paint though.....
