Ahh, the tattoo. Legen—wait for it—dary. The legend goes back to the first PJs – 1971 – the Vietnam war. A little swagger. A little cockiness. And, well, a lot of alcohol. At the time, the PJs’s taxi was the famed Jolly Green Giant helicopter. So, what could be a more fitting symbol for combat search and rescue than the Jolly Green Giant footprint? Thus was born the PJ tattoo. “But where to get said tattoo?” they wondered? They wanted a place that, when showed off, would command respect and awe. Some place unique. After much consideration and a few more drinks, our stalwart heroes came to a decision. A tradition is born. The Jolly Green feet tattoo. On the butt (hip) of every PJ
Shhh. It’s a secret.
