Were you in the Army?

Hey, where you in the Army? Sigh......

I have seen several vehicles like this across town or when go to the VA hospital. Lol. Ok, just maybe one decal, one bumper sticker or one personal license plate to denote your veteran status. Don’t overdo it!

No, or he wouldn't have that gay ass shit on his truck. Probably went to a Battalion level SDM course or did an online class or some such. That's about as gay as the whole HOG/PIG thing in the Corps.

Anybody that tries too hard to be a sniper, isn't. Says the man with the screen name Gsniper. How fuckin funny is that?

My stickers on the back of the Subaru are smaller.

I miss the cars on Bragg in which there were so many stickers on the back window that they could only use see out the rear view mirror through the two Os in the "PARATROOPER" sticker.

I dont even have veteran plates nor do I plan to.

Just in case you missed the first few stickers, he threw in some more to provide better opportunity for you to thank him for his service.

There is a truck I have seen on the highway in Texas a few times that has probably every USMC sticker made on the back of it. I just dont understand turning a vehicle into a mobile billboard of your DD214.

Do you really drive a Subaru?

My tacoma is sanitized, other than my army plate. My life member NRA status will remain our secret; no desire to call safelite over commie hate damage to my vehicle...

Shit yeah I drive a Subaru. It's well documented. It even has a CoExist sticker on it.

Nobody puts Baby in a corner in a Jeep with a bunch of "look at me" shit on it.

A guy introduced himself as a sniper to me some time ago. Such a “special sniper” that the Army let him keep his sniper rifle and take it home when he left service. Oh Yeah. I didn’t ask to see it. He apparently had a TBI as well. Since I didn’t want to further hurt his head I walked away.

Imagine that.

Pretending to be a sniper comes and goes with the movies. We haven't had a good sniper movie in a while.

Posers will just have to tide themselves over with pretending to be SEALs till the next one comes out.

And apparently he's older than Moses. Looking at his "Look at me" stickers, he fought in Korea, Iraq, & Afghanistan. That's a bad mofo.
It's been my experience that the one that talks the loudest has done the least

I agree. But I think age may factor in it. My dad didn’t have anything on his vehicle except the post sticker with the “R” beside. Then he hit his mid sixties and he got license plate that said 8Ranger on it. And had decals from the 82, 11, 101, 187 and Ranger scroll on the bottom of his back window.

He didn’t drive a Subaru.

With that many stickers, you'd think it was a business vehicle.

I plan on getting a small My Little Pony sticker on my truck...probably Applejack, as she's the hottest of the lot.

I have US Paratrooper plates with a small metallic LRRA emblem on the tailgate - I put those on to one-up guy at work who put DV plates on his car - he is a serial one-upper who claims DV status for PTSD as a TXARNG forward observer...brags about calling Danger Close...and is dyslexic

Lol. Does actually happen albeit it not in the US. As true as bob a blueprinted made-to-measure R1 (ZA manufactured FN FAL) that I had been using was given to me to take home back in the day. Until the regime changed and I got a knock on the door. Broke my heart to part with it

No. Some of us only run stickers for effect.

Never was a fan of stickers, even on my racecars.
