    I can understand protecting the "brand" of the respective Service Academies - like USMA is doing with the West Point name - but I cannot understand commercializing Army Unit patches....especially the historic Big Red One!!

    Will my taxes be lowered now that the Army has a new revenue stream?

    I am picturing the Nike swoosh on Sherman tanks.....new names for Forts and Camps....like Camp Trump-Lejeune or Fort Alltel Benning.....:eek:

    Truly, where will it stop? And who gets to decide how to spend the new money???? I kind of thought my elected representatives had the final say in military budgets.

    Is it April Fools Day in September?

    Noooo.....It was announced by Sears on 9/2. Here is an artlcle with a picture of the logo: http://www.fibre2fashion.com/news/apparel-news/newsdetails.aspx?news_id=62567

    ....at least it does not say "Don't Tread On Me".

    Well you can assume it will not make it over to the USCG, as the Pentagon has no oversight there.

    I'm holding out. Will this company present it in a tasteful way or just throw a Big Red One on there so people can see it on "the Hills".
