    Hmm... I read his post and thought about using my cross rifles, but my thinking was the cheap finish on the rifles would wear off. They are similar to your sabers and tank insignia. Is yours holding up well?

    Thoughts?

    There was a commercial engraving on the scales, and had to position the "Dolphins" to cover it.

    Thanks Dirwash glad to start something that does some honor to those that served and most to those that gave the ultimate sacrifice. Hoping more join in. Yours look so nice. The gold just pops out.

    These emblems are all items off of military uniforms bud. If you served cool, but if you didn't it's usually seen as disrespectful to those who earned them.

    All kinds of military surplus stores carry these things if you're looking.

    And I expect a public apology not a back channel one from both of you.

    Why would they need to apologise?

    Peter, sorry that you took it that way. I'd just hate for you to think a SEAL emblem looked kinda cool, use it, and get your ass kicked at a bar.... Never meant that you weren't entitled to anything.... Some folks don't get it.... You should display ANY emblem you are entitled to. . Bart

    Peter, I'm sorry if you're offended that I chose to stand up and protect the medals and ribbons we all earned, but it is something that I have always and will always do, because like you, I know what we went through to earn them. So if anytime somebody asks me where I got a piece of a military uniform and they don't tell me they served first, I will always tell them the same thing. If you find that offensive, then I'm sorry, but I fought just like you did, to have the right to do and say things like that.

    Now if you want help finding something specific let me know, I'm pretty good on Google and can usually get my hands on damn near anything.
