when I bring stl into slicer everything looks fine but after (Green Photo) but after slicing it degrades the Text "Proud Traditions". is there something Im missing or is it a software problem?

You can try enabling Print Settings->Layers and perimeters->Quality_>Detect thin walls. However, printing features smaller than your nozzle size is going to be difficult. You may have to either increase the feature sizes, or using a smaller nozzle.

Also, if this is your design, consider using a font more suited to 3d printing like Aldo or Arial Rounded. Serifs do not play nice for this form of additive manufacturing unless the text is significantly bigger than the nozzle size.

@bobstro

So because of the nozzle size the slicer degrades the model prior to printing, I appreciate your answer and it helps a little when I enable detect thin walls. The text I cant change but when I make the model bigger it doesnt change
