    I'm annoyed. Fuck it, I'm pissed!

    I work with a volunteer firemen. He works his ass off running to accident and fire scenes.

    He was telling me today that he wants to get a Michigan license plate that has the Fireman logo as well as volunteer firemen words.

    He then tells me that the state does not allow this plate unless he is a member of the Michigan Fireman's association. The state still gets an additional $50 just to have this plate.

    Why the fuck would the state withhold something so meaningful?! He has receipts for dues that he pays to the union as well. I'm gonna have to write my congressman.

    Any of you guys have fireman's plates?

    I'm surprised the money grabbing gubmint is refusing to sell it to him. And I just have regular plates.

    I don't, no.

    If he pays union dues, shouldn't he be eligible for an IAFF plate?

    And to top it off, this MVFA logo looks nothing like a fireman logo. You have to to be within 5' to see anything that looks firefighter related.

    That's a different plate, yet. it even looks less like a FF logo.

    Ah, I see the one for the Michigan Firemen's Association, which would make sense that he'd have to be a member to rock their logo and everything. :notsure:

    The IAFF logo is pretty recognizable, I thought.. Still says firefighter and all that on it, too.

    I also found out not too long ago that you can get your HAM radio callsign as your license plate, too.

    I like the multi-use aspect of it. I don't ever expect to need any of the "tacticool/prepper/B.O.B." stuff...……...just want it if I do :D

    They started issuing ones like that in the army a few years back I think. Instead of the ones I have where you just stuff it from the top.

    Just realized I'd have to fudge my timecard a bit to get the OT on this week. We do Sat-Fri and tonight technically counts as a Monday..

    I loaded up my 5.11 Rush 72, but still need one more bag. I didn't want to pay the price for another Rush 72.....and I actually like this bag.

    I'm not sure I have any decent hiking/camping bags anymore. I have some MOLLE bag I lent out to a guy a while back and my army duffels. I think that's it.. I do still have a couple Camelbaks though, which is nice.
