Create a sticker

Ok I'm computer stupid and it took me months to figure out the proper formula etc for writing the bios. I now basically write everything in Microsoft word and paste it in a person's bio and have one entry from start to finish. What I want to do is have an 82nd Airborne Division project and a sticker for denoting someone that has served in the Division and a separate one for the command team so it would be Division Commander and one Division Command Sergeant Major. I'm building everything in a free space profile in an attempt to create all of the 52 ish Division Commanders. I still need to finish them before I start to figure out how many Command Sergeant Majors there are. The Sticker would consist of the Shoulder sleeve insignia with the proper corresponding text. I contacted the Division Museum at Fort Bragg to gather information. Hopefully they respond with what I'm looking for.

Congratulations !! -- Building skills requires practice, so you are not stupid -- you started from baseline of little or no experience and along the way cultivated skills in using that computer, in research, in essay writing (Narrative style biog), in "coding", and I think maybe four or five other skills ALL IN THE SAME TIME FRAME ... you asked from yourself quite a lot and yourself delivered it ... that's a pretty stiff learning curve ... that's a remarkable achievement, frankly ... 

Well I read othe Biography format and outlines and attempted to learn python coding but there is way too much math. I do the best I can to learn and adapt as quickly as possible.
Dave, Python is not needed for WikiTree. Did you mean you were trying to learn it for other purposes?
Yeah I was learning it for personal use. It's definitely for smarter people than me!

You have a Notables Project Box on that profile, which should be a Notables Sticker since the Notables project is not a PM on the profile.  That will generate a 931 Suggestion, so just add ' Sticker' to that project box to change it to a sticker.  Project Boxes are only used when a Project team has decided that they need to monitor a profile.

As for stickers for Veterans, check out this page.  Stickers for Veterans  All of the Wars that have stickers are listed so you can go to each specific one to get correct format for each sticker.  

I am sure the Sticker team will respond about new stickers

What profile? I adopted several profiles and have not adjusted everything as of yet. Please allow me time to resolve this as I have to check them. Unless you can tell me which profile specifically.

RESPECTFULLY

David
The profile mentioned in this question is the only profile I have looked at.  You created it.
I've gone through and fixed the errors sorry for the mistake. I really need to double and trippe check the product before I upload.
We all learn as we go.  Make sure you don't bring in any 'smart' quotes from Word into wikitree or you will get suggestions.
