    [FONT=Calibri][SIZE=3][*******#000000]Couple of guys I served with passed along that the SS runes have been used as a USMC Scout-Sniper platoon “logo” for better than 20 years. One of them allegedly has a coin for his platoon with them on it. Not saying it’s right but apparently these guys weren’t dreaming this up on their own.[/COLOR][/SIZE][/FONT]
