Thank you.... I am a U.S. Navy veteran. Launched a few TLAMS on those f**kers, wish I was still active duty to throw a few more their way.

The license plate is really funny, and very true too. ISIS is really one of the worst things that have popped up in a very, very long time. Seeing the plate on the iM is just hilarious though. I didn't really think that the Navy was involved in the ISIS campaign. Does their "territory" border the ocean?

Glad you're home and glad you believe in the mission (unlike some of the Iraq or Afghanistan veterans, not all, but some).

You can get special plates as a veteran, right? Did that make it easier to get a custom one?

Indeed an awesome plate, i'm sure you get a lot of thumbs up for it and even something that's a conversation starter at times.

The U.S. Navy is in EVERY campaign. I was a destroyer sailor... you'd be surprised how far Tomahawk missiles go...

I could have gotten special veteran's or even disabled veteran's plates but chose the Red White & Blue ... the VA veteran's plates are pretty dull.

Going through the comments section on the video I didn't realize they expire as one person brought that up:

Those weapons were going to get expired if you don't use them bc they are stored in cold room/temperature controlled room ideally. So this is good for the military industry and the whole economy. War is always good for the economy except for prolonged war.

I've been thinking about getting the windows tinted on my iM. Not so much for the look, but I noticed that seats get really warm on a hot sunny day. Would tint on the windows help with that or would it be a waste of time?

This website says it does help.
