Or the FTA on a shredded, shrapnel holed American Flag.

Nice find, Jim, Thanks for posting....  I wonder how much an "FTA" from a latrine door would fetch.

Speaking of artwork, a soldier at the Cam Ranh Army Special Services craft shop spent considerable time crafting a leather belt onto which was carved in big letters, FTA.  We decided his name was Franklin Theodore Adams. Choruses of Franklin Theodore Adams rang out often among the Special Services civilians and military folks assigned to Special Services.  It became an "inside" joke.

I've often wondered if someone had to foresight to collect all the "artwork" on the latrine walls, to include R&R "suggestions".
