Colorado License Plates

Thursday, December 20, 2007



I have to register the Jeep today, and I'm trying to decide which of these two plates I prefer. They cost the same. Thoughts?

No brainer. "U.S. Navy"

Tania said...

I second Mr. Nathan's motion.

Anne C. said...

Me too... err three?

Cindi in CO said...

Navy, of course.

I also think the U.S. Navy is better. The "veteran" in any form has been ruined for me forever by guys standing by the side of the road begging.

John the Scientist said...

Another vote for "Navy". And I sent you a message on Wateveresque.

Janiece Murphy said...

Okay, Navy it is.

John, I got it and responded - thanks.

MWT said...

What? I'm too late to vote?

(not that I wasn't going to go with the prevailing opinion ;) )

Janiece Murphy said...

MWT, you snooze, you lose.

MWT said...

T.T

Janiece Murphy said...

MWT, I actually had to look that up on urban dictionary...

Jeri said...

I like the Navy one too, even though my vote is too late to count.

After yesterday's rant, I *have* to vote. ;)

It focuses on your service - the other seems to be more focused on your discharge status. Odd message, IMHO.

Zzzzz...

What? There's a vote?

Navy.

There. That was easy.

Zzzzz...

Janiece Murphy said...

You guys kill me.

The Navy plates are paid for and look snazzy on the Hot Jeep.

Nathan said...

Excellent. We couldn't let you go the the Honorably Discharged one.

That looks too much like getting through a pass/fail course.

ouch, shit. Quit throwing stuff at me.

Did you find it? It's an emoticon with roots in anime fandom. ;) It's supposed to signify tighly squeezed shut eyes with tears trailing down from them. A slightly newer version is ;.;

Jim Wright said...

"Honorably Discharged Veteran" ??? WTF. "Retired" I can see, but the other? Do they have "Admin Sep?"

I'm with everybody else, go Navy.

Michelle K said...

Jim,

They don't have retired because it sounds like something for old people?

(duck)

(quack)

Janiece Murphy said...

MWT, I did find it. Some sort of WOW reference on urban dictionary, which I never played.

Jim, my Smart Man has a "Veteran" plate, because that was all that was offered in the way of military-based plates when he bought his car. When he trades it in, he's planning on getting the "U.S. Army" plate. I was wondering if I could of gotten the "Veteran" plated personalized - with "RE-R1." Hehe.

Becca said...

Can I just say, thanks for serving.

Merry Christmas,
Becca

Janiece Murphy said...

Becca, you're welcome.

Cindi in CO said...

The Honorably Discharged Veteran plate always puzzled me too. Would anybody run a plate that said "Dishonorably Discharged Veteran"?

Janiece Murphy said...

There's a "Support the Troops" plate, as well, complete with a yellow ribbon. I'm sure that will just thrill Jim. Although you have to make a $25.00 donation to American Military Family (a non-profit) in order to get them.

Cindi, how about a "I tried to serve, but washed out" plate? That would cover admin seperations, dishonorable and general dischanges - the whole gamut. The symbol could be a little washing machine. Hehe.

Cindi in CO said...

Heh. Good one.
