Hoop, we get it. And we see it differently, that's all. It's like driving down the street and seeing an ARMY bumper sticker you like. You identify with that person and might give him (her) a thumbs up. Me, I love to see an old gent in a restaurant wearing a ball cap with a SeaBees insignia on it. I stop and we reminisce, it's good for the soul. I use a "Can Do" license plate frame, and it makes my day when someone recognizes it.

I get Hoop's message as well now that he properly communicated it. Keep it neutral, clean and Ford and we'll all get along fine. Communication skills are important though. Speak your mind -- don't just throw out provocative crap.

Hoop's message was "properly" communicated as he originally posted it ....
"The idea sucks."

Old Henry/Craig , thank you for starting what I would call "The Veterans of Fordbarn Recognition Thread". I enjoyed reading when, where, and how other members served their country and maybe still are serving today. I was a little surprised at the number of members who readily came forward to post their service information, and also surprised that many of these members had rarely, if ever, posted on the discussion forum before. I think that is positive. It really wasn't that surprising, to me at least, that we did have a few "anti badge posting hecklers", but then they do deserve the right to voice their opinions as well. Actually, anyone who wants their service information to be known by other members can add this to their profile page. Also, for those who think this post had no relavence to Early Fords or the old car hobby in general, I can tell you that while many of us were serving, we were dreaming and planning what kind of old car we wanted to buy or build when we got back home. Many who servered were probably responsible in some way for some of us making it back home to live a life where we could enjoy many things, including these Early Ford Flathead V-8's.

Glad we got this back on track . . . I deeply respect and honor ALL the folks who have served in every branch of our services - I owe more than I can imagine to those.

Also, I do understand where Hoop is coming from - we do need to keep the focus of this site the way it is, the way Ryan intended, etc.. Once we start breaking ourselves into groups, then we can easily start to ruin the culture of this site (one - that has no color, no religion - other than Old Fords, no borders and no political opinion).

With that said - this thread is completely appropriate and we didn't get too far off track. Thanks for your service . . . again, I owe you all everything.
