Re: Posing as a 1lt
I think it should be illegal for "just anyone" to even be able to buy them. I know that wouldn't happen because people do collect things, and it's not illegal to sell them. Just my opinion but for $25.00, plus shipping and handling people like this can get everything from uniforms, to medals and jumpwings too. It's like a slap in the face to the people who earn them.
It pisses me off.
