    I find that Bastian made pins for the Selective Service System, so I would guess that it's a 13 yr member pin.

    America was founded by tough hell-raisers. Rugged citizens who evaded taxes, spoke strongly against tyranny, grew tobacco, brewed beer, distilled spirits, and smuggled weapons. And it will be saved by those same types of citizens.

    O- makes you the flavor of the day - every day! But we already suspected that about you.
    They told me I should hold on to my dreams.
