Wow I never knew, that is serious, I am going to reconsider my membership here specially a website represented with a sign of anti peace in it's logo from the book of devil.I like this one's simplicity.
This oval design would make a great brass belt buckle! I can also see it readily adaptable to patches, pockets, money clips, and imprintable on many novelty items as well.
BUT, here's the Chaplain's big HOWEVER.....
The "spade" could still be offensive to some. It is, to the best of my understanding, irrelevant to the SteelSoldiers membership in general.
This WIKI https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ace_of_spades tells some of the Spade's history in war (favorable); the "IDIOMS" section of the WIKI states a very valid case for NOT incorporating it into this website's logo. Additionally, many Christians and Christian denominational doctrine hold to the explanations well described in this link... http://www.eaec.org/bibleanswers/playing_cards.htm , so in the interest of those deeply held beliefs, even with regard to any use of the emblem to rally troops, I must still assert that this emblem has no real justification for inclusion in a logo that is intended to represent unity of MV enthusiasts of such a broad spectrum of beliefs.
I kind of thought sacrificing your life for others were sacred, but unfortunately people take purity and make it completely demonic.
This is also why I dont want to put flag of U.S. on a shirt made to be sold to public, because there are many people out there who thinks the Constitution American flag represents is only for select race and religion of people, which that violates the very same values of the U.S. Constitution.
If you are proud of American flag then carry it in your words and actions.
It is like a Church holding a poker night on Saturdays.
