Liberty for DC!

(At last.)

Brother Rat BullNav nails it. We'll see how the DC council idiots spin it.

More to follow.

Update... an excellent thread at 10-8 Forums...

And another at Countertop, with a cool NRA banner...

If I wasn't already drinking, I'd head to the range to celebrate.

And now THIS?? I'm ready for a cigarette, if you know what I mean...

Regimental Signs

Folks, I want to showcase the craftsmanship of a good friend and fellow Marine, Major Joe Winslow. Joe runs Regimental Signs, and produces oversized seals and plaques for military units, government agencies, police departments, companies and individuals. (He just delivered one to the White House Situation Room.) Here are some examples of his best work:

The logo of 2d Light Armored Reconnaissance Battalion for a memorial in the battalion CP at Camp Lejeune, NC:

A brass emblem for a memorial at VMI:

The seal of a police department. Note the excellent relief and "feel" to it:

Finally, look at WO Mike Fay's post on the Military Order of St Nicholas. Guess who made the medals and the certificates?? (In that photo are not only myself and Mike Fay, but Joe Winslow and Craig Covert too.)

If you, your unit or your organization needs work like that, Joe's the man to call.
