    Well, "fideli certa merces" means "To the Faithful There is Just Reward"
    Unless I've provided a link, most of what I say is my own opinion. Sometimes, I'm thinking out loud and may explore avenues I don't necessarily think are true, but I'm always aware I could be wrong, so I check other stuff out.

    Weird question:
    Do we know what color the shoelaces in her docs were? Can we find out? It may mean nothing, but there used to be, and may still be, in certain circles, coded meaning. And by "low doc boots" do they mean 1460s? Or 1461s (which I would consider shoes, but because they are docs someone might call them boots.)

    Is that tattoo a gang-related symbol?
    Six-year-old Shannon Sherrill disappeared from her front yard in Thorntown, Indiana in October, 1986. Someone knows where she is......

    It's considered really bad form to have Marine tattoos and not be a Marine. But if she were, she'd have had a fingerprint hit, right? My next through was Marine widow, but I would think there would be some indication of a dedication of the tat. I guess she could be a Marine wife. Those are really bad tattoos. The left one is "ok" quality, the right one is terrible.

    I'd like to suggest Kristen Hicks. Missing from Irving, TX and believed to be in Austin. Age 15 4'11" and 95 lbs. What strikes me is the widow's peak and the small mole under left eye. The eye color is concerning. I wonder if the deceased spent time underwater? Might that muddy her eye color?

    I'm confused by the clothing. Jeans, 2 shirts and a jacket in the JUNE HEAT in Texas?

    Maybe she isn't local?

    Or in honor of a brother or father? Or, she lost her marine and has gone to join him. RIP dear girl.

    Is the cross with the eye also a Marine symbol? This symbol must have meant a lot to her since she had it on both arms.

    Hannah, I've been searching on and off all day, I can find NOTHING that resembles her tattoos. It doesn't seem to be Marine related.

    In addition to being viewed as a cross, it could be a compass or a four pointed star.

    From: http://www.bullseyetattoos.com/artic...d-star-tattoos
    "Four Point Star, depicted as an equilateral cross with sharpened ends, was especially popular with various early Native American tribes. The star design appeared in their rock art, tipis, shields, clothing, robes, and pottery. People who choose the four point star tattoo tend to be trustworthy, practical, and down-to-earth individuals. They are the cornerstone members of society, who perform their duties with dedication and perseverance, and have the kind of will power that is often mistaken for sheer stubbornness. Once a decision is made, it will be followed through to the conclusion, right, wrong, or indifferent. "Four star tattoo" people are very set in their ways and determined to handle things the way they know they should be handled and their tenacity of purpose and ability to get the job done borders on obsession."

    I have found things resembling the cross and the lightning bolts so far and I think with our group work we can figure out it. Different battle groups have different symbols. For example: my dad's old navy squadron had diamond shapes. There was the "hornet" attack group who had...hornets. Get it? Anyways, I was looking around. Do an image search. I am not sure but I think there has got to be a page somewhere. I think lightning bolts usually mean an attack group??? I will keep looking.
