Actor Michael Ornstein of “Sons of Anarchy” fame reached out to Marine Corps Times last week, offering to help the Marine scout sniper community replace its controversial “SS” logo. The effort has received a widespread and varied response here on Battle Rattle.
It also has prompted another artist to offer to help. Luke Szczygielski, the designer of last year’s Marine Corps Aviation Centennial logo, reached out to say Ornstein’s effort inspired him to draw up some proposals, too. One of them is posted above, and the others can be found on his website here.
For comparison’s sake, the Corps’ aviation centennial logo looked like this:
Thoughts, of course, are appreciated — but please keep the discussion respectful.
Big improvement! Hopefully a decision will be made soon and the Nazi logos can be replaced.
Here we go again there all coming out of the wood work now. Sorry girls the SS is staying whether anyone likes it or not. Put it to rest already for Christ sakes!!!!!
Why try to fix something that isn’t broke, looks like this logo should be on the tail fin of an AIR FORCE jet. Sorry Carlos Hathcock glad your not around to see your Sniper community being turned upside down by these politically correct liberal idiots. Where is Commandant Al Gray and Carl Mundy when you need them. This crap wouldn’t even be an issue if they were still running the show. Not like this guttless asskisser General Amos.(What a Shame)!!!
No doubt Todd, least the loser Ornstein is out of the picture for now, haven’t seen him piping off with the mouth. I cant believe people are thanking that clown for his efforts. Have you seen his artwork? Anyone on mushrooms and acid producing that crap and calling it art should not be taken seriously. By the way that SOA show(terrible) great example your setting for are youth…..
Gents, as a military history nerd and a humble Marine Officer Candidate, I like to think I have a decent handle on Marine Corps culture…and since I happened to design one official logo already, I figured why not make a few “sketches”? At the end of the day, if the SS community decides to keep their current logo, that’s fine by me. Kill
keep the “nazi” logo… this cheesey mothers of America endorsed bullshit is dumb. This CRAP that were supposed to think makes things nicer, is stupid. War sucks, stop being a bunch of pussies. This is getting really dumb.
This is getting completely stupid. As I was, this was completely stupid to begin with, now it’s just pathetic.
I AM PROUD OF WHAT I WENT THROUGH TO EARN THE 8541 MOS IN THE USMC. THE NAZI TYPE SS WAS THE SYMBOL WE USED THEN, AND I DON’T SEE WHAT THE FUSS IS ABOUT.
