Want some tips so you get the best out of your decals? You came to the right place.
A Way to Show Support
It isn’t difficult to see why people show their support for the military. The men and women of the military step up when many of us cannot. They put their lives on the line to ensure that there is safety for others.
It may seem like a simple military decal pales in comparison to the monumental sacrifice.
The point isn’t that it equals what they gave. The point is that you understand that the choice they made was a choice you were proud of.
Different Types of Military Decals
There are as many different types of decals as there are members of the military! Here are some of the common groups that these decals come from.
1. A Ribbon of Honor
The Ribbon design has been in use for decades. Ribbons have been a common form of decoration for decades.
The ribbon design,color-coded for a variety of causes, decorated thousands of cars across the United States. This was shortly after the terrorist attacks of 9/11. As military pride grew, the “Support Our Troops” ribbons became a common sight.
While they are not as common as they were a decade ago, the idea still remains a pure and powerful symbol.
2. Honoring the Fallen
“All Gave Some, Some Gave All” is a powerful slogan referencing the high price many soldiers have paid in the line of duty.
There is a large variety of stickers that honor the fallen. It is a simple and broad message, one that requires very little context.
3. Support Specifics
An excellent choice of support is to point out the heroics of a particular branch or even unit in the military.
This is usually a trend that comes from knowing someone in that particular branch. This doesn’t have to be the case. Sometimes a particular military branch sparks pride in you.
4. Family Matters
For even greater specifics and significance, some use special decals that honor their family or friends that have served in the military.
The common ones are proud parents displaying that their child serves in the armed forces. It could also be a spouse with a significant other deployed overseas. Another popular idea is honoring parents or grandparents who have served long ago.
5. Military Sayings
Every branch of the military has a variety of sayings and codes that define them.
You can find a decal that expresses any of the famous codes. One of the most famous of these codes is “Semper Fi” from the Marine Corp. It stands for Semper Fidelis, which is Latin for “Always Faithful”.
