How to add a 1776 sticker without knowing dates

I just added a 1776 sticker for George Utz-108 and I don't know his start or ending dates, but those terms show up anyway. How do I delete those from the sticker?

Carolyn, I don't know that you can remove those as they are part of the template.

Carolyn, unfortunately, they show up for now.  A request is in to remove them and I think it is on the "to do" list.

I've added the tag "sticker" to your question; maybe we will get some attention to it wink

No current plans are in motion to rework this template. It is an extremely complicated template to work with and we would need a full consensus and approval from M&W Leaders.

Do you think you can arrange that discussion and have the changes you want done detailed out and proposed in G2G?
Is it possible to have all stickers drop the lines that don't have a value?

muster date
muster out date
years of service


I don't meant just this sticker, I mean all of them.

As I type this I see the past discussion below in the related questions:

1776 sticker/template missing service dates

Yes, it is definitely possible. It would just be improper for the Templates project to undertake this without discussion and consensus (especially from affiliated projects)

So since we know it is possible, al that is needed is a proposal and to make sure there are no major objections.

Thanks for the prompt response to my issue with the 1776 sticker! I hope they can adjust it as right now I'd rather not even have it than have it in the shape it is.
