Follow and read about the entire project here:

http://forum.special...=0#entry2534861



Final assembly:

Here she is all assembled,not leaking and functioning as if it were new from the factory.

First off I would like to thank John (DUCE on MCB),for giving me the HONOR and allowing me to put SPC Jimenez's name on this Gun Project.

Thank You to Eric (Paintballer187 on MCB) for doing the great job of Lazer Engraving on the regulator and for the quick turn around.

This was a special project for me. This is something I have always Believed in. It is something I have always held Dear in my Heart.

This Country and it's People should never forget those who have not returned home,Who are/were missing but are now home, Killed in Action and those who will never return.

Even though I never knew them,they are still my Brothers. They will always be family and will always be in my prayers till I die. I'm not sure what sadness many feel, but the sadness I feel is heavy in my Heart. These individuals have been and given the Ultimate Sacrifice for this Country and for other Countries.

When they were called, they went with little complaint if any. Fought for the Freedom of others and helped to keep the enemy from shores. They were Fathers,Sons,Husbands, and Lovers to many. Many will never feel that touch again. So when you hug you Children, Spouse and Family, remember you are able to do that because of those who can't.

As with all things Military,there is always a story that represents things.


The Lite Grey Body repesents the haze of smoke from Battles past and present.

The Barb Wire represents those that are held captive and have not yet returned home to us.

The Black represents those confined and those who may or will never see the light of day.

The Red represents the blood of those who have given the Ultimate Sacrifice for our great nation and it's people.

The US Army repesents just one branch that many of us have served in and fought along many we never knew, but call Our Brothers in Arms, and would give our life for them if need be.

The Soldier's name is that of one who was taken from us. He represents not one,but many who have been taken from us.The name is printed to the left side of the regulator so that individual and others will always be held close to my Heart and protected with my hand (or others),so they may never be hurt again.

The Grips are a reminder so that ALL OF US never forget those who have SACRIFICED for this Great Nation.


Later,
Blackrain

Very cool symbolism, very cool job on it...I like it a lot! Keep up the good work

Thats a beautiful gun. The fact that it has so much symbolism makes it even more amazing.
I'm not out here to glorify myself

Wow that is so awesome. I do like how the vert reg looks like the black bracelet that we use when we have MIA/KIA. I always wear mine since my cousin was killed in Iraq during the same time I was there. But It's a great way to remember the fallen and the missing. Colors looks great and the barb wire came out really good. I think that it's a great way to remember the people who haven't come back and those who won't.

I personally seen too many draped caskets on my many trips to the sand box and think that many people don't realize what kind of sacrifice we give to keep our country safe. This is a great way to have people ask about the history of the marker and it's purpose. The same way I get to keep my cousins memory alive every time somebody ask about my KIA bracelets.

Good job!

From Soldier to Soldier, thank you. I didn't make this to be different,I made this so know one ever forgets. The Soldier on the regulator did come home,I just didn't want to put "KIA",because it hurt to much. So I had it engraved just how it was sent to me. Once again thank you.

Thanks,
Blackrain:)

If it's engraved or not it's what's left in our hearts and minds that counts. But to have such a visual is so much stronger than words alone. So I commend you on your idea and how you chose to spread the word of a fellow soldier. Whether it's purple heart, MIA or KIA they all have the same rights to be remembered as the ultimate sacrifice and heroes. By the marker you have made it just makes people more aware of this fact. Spreading the word is the only way we keep their sacrifices alive and not just another page forgotten by history.

I in turn thank you.

Well from a person who never had the chance to serve and just watched his son leave for boot...I thank you both for your service.

blackrain, I know you have heard this but it looks great. Your work in documenting the process will help other in the future of our forums so thanks for taking the time for those kids out there with big ideas and smal budgets.

I will get a chance to put my eyes on it at Supergame good sir!

You are quite welcome. I hope your Son does well in boot camp. Just look me up at SG41. Look for my Banner. I probably post a link to where this is all documented at. I'll help anyone that will to learn and wants the help.
