Actually Navarro, what's the problem with keeping them both.
The Veterans sticker denotes he is a Veteran of the United States Military. The image is the seal of the Dept of Veterans Affairs. While modern in design, it reflects the present seal. Remember, while the government has supplied pensions to service members since the Revolutionary war, no actual government agency was created until 1930.
The War of 1812 sticker denotes the when and where.he served.
So both are actually appropriate. Quite simply, the Veterans sticker denotes what he is and will always be, a Veteran. The 1812 sticker denotes what he was and when he served. And besides, there's no extra charge to have two. wink, wink.
