Well it being an OB decal we need approval and then I am sure we would need to get artwork or something to the printer who does the OB decals now......

Jim ... I'm guessing the approval would need to come from Michael could be wrong though. Its possible he could point us in the right direction. As far as the printing goes again may need approval from Michael to see if we can use the same company who prints his stickers. Then there is the funding aspect need a plan to raise the cost of materials & services & distribution. I'm new at this sort of thing so just guessing right now. By the way SOG on your screen name what does that signify could it be military affiliated?

I think, and that is the way it should go to my opinion, is that @Michael and @Corrie decide. So, if they have seen this, then they probarly will make some suggestions and from there we can give our opinion on that. And then they decide, as we of course will not agree all together. Hehe.
So, I hope they react soon and give their point of view and end result.

Personally I think it's cool that people all over the world are enjoying the same hobby and using the same decal. I would have a hard time believing I am the only one of us with at least one sticker on our vehicle letting everyone know we are a Vet, what branch, and that we like our guns. Thank you all for your volunteering to serve your country, the world appreciates your sacrifice. I just don't think it's our responsibility to have everything made to recognize us over everyone else. Our actions that make us better should do that. My .02

Since becoming involved as a Representative, I have gotten a glimpse into just how much effort takes place behind the scenes... and I am only seeing about 1% of it. There are hundreds of issues every day that come up in the background and need administrative input/decision making. I have taken the stance that, like many other ideas that are floating out there, this will get it's day in the spotlight.

Most Militaries these days are using a tan or brown pattern. So my 2 cents would be to keep the bronze color you have, or a desert tan color.

If the badge itself will only be available to veterans of their respective countries, You could simple put the words " Military tested" or " here's to heroes", etc.

It can be proved that they are military by sending a confirmation to a military email. we all get one when we join.

That sticker or badge would really be sweet to have, especially 15 yrs USN and still going strong! Send me something to purchase something like this and I'd rock it on my ride with pride. Semper Fortis

I like the idea of having stickers like this on the vehicle...it helps identify people. If I was at a campground and needed help with something and out of all the vehicles around me one had a USMC sticker, I'd definitely stop there first because I know the person would be helpful and could handle biz. If I had a hole in my inflatable raft, I'd go look for a USN sticker....

Not sure about other countries, or even every US state, but I know every state I've lived in (about a dozen) has at least one type of veteran or active duty license plate, even if it's just a DMV decal attached to a regular plate. In TX, there's many kinds to choose from and they don't even cost extra. All you have to do is provide a copy of your active ID or DD-214.

Well if this comes to bear fruit I'm sub'ed. I'm a Marine but currently a contractor with the Dragon Lady so I am still always with the military.

I'm not sure I'm going to advertise that I'm an ex Serviceman for all the "nut-jobs" to use me or my vehicle as their next target.
I honestly think that is more of a UK issue mate. Certainly not interested in sticking veteran in my Landy, they are targets enough without making it more so and in some countries it might be better not to advertise you are ex military.
And anyway their are plenty of other ways to advertise you are ex military than with OB
But I’m ok with a subtle addition to your patch and a badge on the forums
