    I think it would be nice if we had a marker in the member box showing some form of veteran recognition.

    Something subtle, or maybe a gold plated DD214.

    Any thoughts?

    I very much agree. How about the logo for the members branch of service.

    Those look "outstanding" to me.

    I like it stands out too. maybe you should have something different for active duty/retired as well.

    I think it's a great idea as well. However, let's not get too fancy with it. The logo can be enough.

    BTW, I really dislike the newfangled wings logo the AF uses. I guess I'm just old and grumpy. :eek:

    +1, I did my 20 years in the AF and don't like the new emblem.

    "Outstanding idea!"

    The gold platted DD214 idea sounds good to me, but the emblem idea sounds even better. :cool:

    I personally liked the Hap Arnold wings.

    Henry Harley "Hap" Arnold, the Commanding General of the U.S. Army Air Forces (1941-1946), the only Air Force general to hold five-star rank, and the only officer to hold a five-star rank in two different U.S. military services.

    It reminds me of the older Army Air Corp insignia.. I really do like me some old school with a new twist. I think General Curtis LeMay (God rest his soul) would have approved of it.

    Okay. I can see the logic in that. I like how it almost mirrors the original wings. I hadn't realized the likeness.
