I went in the Army in '82...
IIRC 1 good conduct --I got Captain's Mast one time for getting out of hand at the E club
1 service medal--and something else..I'll have to dig up my papers--it's on the DD214, isn't it?
I was guard duty for 4 years..then 4 years in the Fleet
I had 6 years to learn how to not do any duty...
here it is:
1 good conduct
1 unit commendation
sea service with 2 stars--
I have a good conduct with 3 clusters. 2 unit award citations. A marksman with a cluster (m16 and handgun), a north pole ( I don't remember the name of it), and one medal. A commendation medal for finding a significant equipment drift during a calibration exercise. If it hadn't been found, the mathematical equations would have underreported the yield size by nearly two orders of magnitude.
the USMC used to be known for not giving out medals for just anything
Well, I don't blame the Air Force for My lack of medals. It was a career field that didn't lend itself to very much heroism. I was in for less than 9 years, so it's not a big deal.
the clothes and cleaning and ribbons is the least of it....it takes PRACTICE to have a parade, wasted hours on end....
and a lot of time to get your tanks and other equipment all spit shined, and then the moving of everything to Washington DC from all over the country, then the logistics of whether the roads can even handle the weight of the tanks and them tearing up the roads in washington DC with this type of parade and also the risk of moving equipment from the bases of where they belong, and a lot of other pain in the ass things for them to do and go through, for them to honor themselves.... it just seems stupid and such a waste of time to make these guys we are suppose to be honoring have to go through all of this when usually, a parade is put on by OTHERS...in gratitude for the ones we are celebrating, and making the military go through all of the logistics and work is truly stupid.....
We should be putting n a parade for them.... not them having to do the work to put on a parade for themselves.
The parade has been called off. Everyone who was supposed to march came down with temporary bone spurs in their heels.
