"I aquired a duce and a half heater and mounted it between the seats, and it would roast you out . I also put wooden doors and plexiglass windows on it. I drove for the 1SG , so what else is there to do on the border.  The M151 heater did not…"

Alright George, you have dibs on the sign. If you don't take it I'm making a picnic table out of it (eventually). I already have the folding legs I need, just have to varnish the sign one summer.

I'm over in the southeast corner of Tacoma (Larchmont), near Midland. Give me a holler when you're ready to come get it.

Just gotta stop by my house with something big enough to carry it off with.

Well, it's a little big for the mailbox! It's painted on a half sheet of 3/4" plywood and quite heavy.

My youngest son moves furniture and works out at Ft Lewis quite a bit. The sign was given to him by a Major who brought it back from Iraq. Now it sits in my garage waiting for me to do something with it. I considered covering it in resin and making a picnic table out of it, but if you want it, it's yours. Been trying to give it away for a couple years. Ya just gotta come over the hump to get it.
