The Wrangler Forum 2019 Veteran's Day/Remembrance Day contest*



Open to all service men and women both past and present from around the world.


3 Winners receive a free 1-year supporting membership**



The rules are simple:

  • Posting open from 9/3/2019 to 11/11/2019
  • Post no more than 3 pictures of yourself while serving in the military and tell us a little about yourself. (please remember OPSEC, we don't need too many details)

  • Nov 11, 2019 – The winners are announced: Two winners will be chosen from all entries by a random number generator, and a third will be chosen by polling the forum membership .
*Veteran's Day is an American holiday celebrated on November 11th and is to honor veterans of the US Armed Forces, both living or dead. Originally known as Armistice Day a day to commemorate the signing of the armistice signaling end of WWI (the 11th hour of the 11th day of the 11th month 1918).




Remembrance Day (aka Poppy Day) is a day commerated by British Commonwealth countries as to honor military veterans that have died in the line of duty much like the US Memorial Day.






For the purposes of this contest, we wish to honor members of the military regardless the country for which they served


(no North Korean, Al Qaeda, Taliban or ISIS members please.)






**Should a winner already be a supporting member on Nov 11th, they will be upgraded to a 5-year membership.

USMC 1987 - 1993, spent about half that time over seas in various countries. The pics are from Desert Storm in April 1991, right before we came back to the states. Carried around/slept with that M60 for the 4 months (1st tour) i was there. Went back to Saudi from June - October of 1991 (2nd tour) to guard the reloading of the pre-positioning ships.
