how long were you in and what medals?
My daughter is stationed at Sheppard even as we speak.
Was McBrides Steakhouse there at the time?
Guess you never earned more than just one medal then, because if you had, you would have had to get them mounted for full dress ceremonies.
Or...............maybe you never had to do full dress uniform.
20 years. 4 Sea Service deployment ribbons, 2 National Defense Medals, 5 Good Conduct medals, Expert Pistol Medal, Navy Expeditionary Medal, Southwest Asia Service Medal, 3 Navy and Marine Corps Achievement Medals, 2 Meritorious Unit Commendations, and finally, 1 Kuwait Liberation Medal.
Yeah, it got expensive when I had to get all those things mounted as a set.
McBride's opened in 1992.
Fat McBride and his brothers were and are legends in Wichita Falls.
I was long gone from Sheppard in the late 70's.
Then it's the epitome of hurry up and wait for your turn to march.....
Shoot..................there's also the wasted time BEFORE the parade where they form you up and make sure that you remember how to march like you did in boot camp.
I always hated the "dog and pony show" every month also...
He got one for the best head cleaner..
yes, I think I remember seeing some Navy boys got medals for shooting
we got badges
..IIRC, they didn't have to shoot well at all to get a medal....this was the early 80s
