“U.S.M.C.” Tattooed on my right forearm in Hong Kong at a place called “Pinky’s”, I believe, for 15 new Hong Kong dollars which was about $3 American. When I came back home my Mom was furious but still loved me. Dad was a Marine in WW2 Pacific theatre on Guadalcanal, Betio, and Okinawa. He didn’t mind the Tatt. Love you, Pop

Sgt Grit has 105 flags on line for sale and not one has stars and bars. I wonder why that is??? It’s 2019 not 1862 they lost time to move on. It’s time to unite under the Stars and Stripes. It’s not perfect but it’s pretty damn good.

First and only Tat. Three lines right forearm.

$1.00 a line in J Ville January 55 after 4 beers. Good thing my buddies saw me in the parlor and got me out. Lord knows what else I would have added.

When my Mother saw it she cried for hours!

Different time, different world.
You P. C. fools !!

What cause????

Never be ashamed of the “stars and bars”, it symbolizes standing up for your rights and your cause, even under fire or persecution.
Oooh Rah!

Tat looks like it came from “Ace tattoo” on Broadway in San Diego?My letters have the same shape and colors !

To deny HISTORY is asking to repeat history. Pretending that there were no confederate Marines is just PC nonsense. I had family fighting on both sides during the civil war and I am proud of all of them.

For sure Scott. Not much to choose from. A liar or a pyscho. You have to vote for who you think will do you the least amount of harm. I’m sure we both think we were right.

Looks like Paul voted for Hillary. Good job! Still love my liberal brothers though.
