I wanted to use the U. S. Marine Corps desktop background on the AR-15.COM homepage list of desktops to show my support for the Marines. But I have never been a Marine. So, would it be wrong to have this desktop on my computer? I don't want to offend anyone who has earned the right to have the desktop.....

...one's a sick duck, and I can't remember the rest but your mother's a whore. Oh....in lawyerspeak, extrapolating from previous altercations regarding such items as 'digital camo', then no, it would be improper for any non-Marine to utilize the destop in question, especially since it carries the USMC logo, which is I believe trademarked. Personally, however, I think there's only one question that needs to be asked in a situation like this....what would R. Lee Ermey say?

I would not expect it to offend anyone. Showing support for any branch is a good thing. It's not like you're wearing BDUs or a field jacket with a USMC patch, that would piss off any vet. On that note... every time I see some teenaged punk wearing BDUs as part of some GOTH BS costume, I want to punch their lights out.
