    I'm OK with that... look at Jeff (Tigerfan00) He had a Eagle, Globe, & Anchor in his sig to support his brother who is deployed...

    Support = OK
    Claiming your awesomeness on call of duty is like being in the Corps = Poser

    WTF? The question in the profile is not what branch do you support...it is which branch did you serve in. If you didn't serve God and Country...take the seal down.

    And that's a perfectly legitimate point of view. One could argue that being left home while a spouse/family member is deployed is also a form of service. No sense getting our knickers in a knot. A simple change in the wording of that question while filling out your profile could resolve the situation. "In which branch did you personally serve?"

    Sheesh, I'm a Marine. A killing machine. WTH am I doing playing therapist!?! Hollywood tells me I should be mean and opinionated! :D

    Give them a little yellow ribbon for them to put there. Or something to distinguish those supporting loved ones from those who have served.

    Until the question in the profile is changed, support should be shown in other ways, like in your sig, IMO, lest ye be caught up in poserus clitoris dragnets............:D

    I agree with the use of the symbol.....but on a sidenote, IMO, it would have been way more emphatic to have said................"Anybody who uses that symbol without just cause is obama'd up."

    either you served or you didn't
    for those who want to show their support, pick something else to use
    an example, [​IMG]

    I am waiting on someone to propose we all send in copies of DD 214's to confirm our service. I think we have plenty of room in our Sig. blocks to support whom ever we please. Besides that, more can be said or implied by your sig. than a service seal can. Just my .02

    Ok what about the people that work for the DoD on our CAC cards it says army. I used that but would be glad to take it down if it affends anyone. I support all you guys but i just figured since that is what my CAC card says "Army DoD" that is what i put. just let me know. I am in Iraq on a Military post and have been here for two yrs. I do state in my emblem that i am DoD if you go over my emblem then it will tell you that.

    really..??
    It's a Yes or No thing, either a member of the Armed Forces or not. I appreciate what you do, seriously. I don't think you should carry the emblem for the Army. These are my views.
