    I have no idea where to post this, but I want to do it in honor of Wood Chipper. an active member of our military.He serves in the Navy. About six months ago I was looking up coat of arms and found out there was a USS ship named Green Bay. The coat of arms is awesome, it even has a Packer helmet in it (from the coat of arms for the city of Green Bay). Please take a look at it. And thank Wood Chipper and all those that serve our country.
    USS Green Bay (LPD 20)

    I did translate the Latin motto long ago. but I can't remember it.

    The motto “STATUM BELLO INVICTUS MANEO” translates to “STAND AND FIGHT, REMAIN UNVANQUISHED”

    I really admire your knowledge of everything. You get an "A" in 3rd year Latin. Not a bad motto for the Packers.

    Upon further review, I just realized that the translation was given if one bothered to read the web site. But since I forgot that, you still get your "A"

    Well if you don't enjoy the history of the USS Green Bay, would you rather have served on the USS Cowpens?
    Was that named in honor of the Cowgirls? I don't care because it's true and makes me laugh.

    BTW, Wood Chipper, the first USS GREEN BAY served off Guantanamo Bay, Cuba. Ironic since you are heading there.

    Over and over again. First a warning, then a 10 day ban, then another 10 day ban...
    We try to be somewhat patient and liberal in this forum, but enough's enough.

    which time?

    The first big issue I remember was him talking about blowing up a military recruitment office... I think that was his first couple days on the forum.

    towards the end he kept following me around the forum screaming about me being a racist.

    I believe he threatened the forum at some point as well, saying he was going to shut it down or some nonsense.

    It's in the best interest of everyone not to disclosure that but I thought it was pretty noticeable why he was banned...

    Actually the USS Cowpens is named after a US victory over the British during the Revolutionary war in South Carolina. The last battle scene in the movie "The Patriot" is loosely based on the battle of Cowpens.

    I would be honored to serve on either ship.

    Me too.... he seemed to have made a lot of posts looking at his name and post count.
    A shame to lose anyone but if he was causing trouble, I understand.

    Mods must have done a good -and fast- job cleaning up the crap if we 3 in here hadn't noticed.

    I believe threats towards the forum in general were made as well. Might be the most insane person I have come across on the net. And thats saying something.

    His private messages were insane rants as well.

    Correct in all accounts. Not a bad person, just a little bit overpassioned towards his beliefs and opinions.
