    found this quote on the net
    [FONT=Verdana, Arial, Helvetica][SIZE=2][*******midnightblue]I stumbled across this forum by accident and can't help but comment. I am a former Marine Scout/Sniper. I was with 2/1 S.T.A. (Surveillance, Target, Acquisition) platoon from 1994-1998. Modern platoons are simply called Scout/Sniper Platoons now. Anyway, to answer all of your questions concerning SS, it has nothing to do with WWII or the SS troops. It is merely coincidence. Sorry, but it's that simple. SS is short for Scout/Sniper. That's it. That's how it was before I graduated sniper school and that's how it was when I got my SS brand and that's how it is today. And it is specific to Marine Scout/Snipers by the way. The Army doesn't call their snipers by the term Scout/Sniper. They simply call them Army Snipers, thus, the SS wouldn't apply. It's just an old Marine Scout/Sniper right of passage. When you graduate sniper school you get your Hog's Tooth and an SS brand. . . and you pray together in the Hog's Den for war so that you might have the privilege of packing Hell with souls. Are we good? I'm out.[/COLOR][/SIZE][/FONT]

    i might just be coincidence but i wouldn't personally choose a symbol with a clear reference to a Nazi unit without having some sort of association with them... I mean there are other ways to symbolize two "S"
