    WASHINGTON – A study released today found that officers who purchased non-valor Bronze Star license plates for their vehicles were 98% less likely to have left a forward operating base, or FOB, during a deployment than officers who did not purchase the plates.

    The Pentagon spent two months and roughly $17 billion on the study, which was originally intended to determine why some officers were colossal douchebags while others were only slightly less so. A clear pattern emerged, according to the study’s researchers.

    Okay, so it’s parody. This is one of my favorite sites for a good morning laugh. As an ex-personnel sergeant, I can tell you there is a huge amount of truth in this. During ‘Nam, officers were awarded non-valor Bronze Star Medals like enlisted personnel got Good Conduct Medals.

    As far as I know you have to have proof of the award before you can get the license plate. If they have such proof it seems that the details of their service is nobody's business but their own. A possible exception to the rule is when Officers self recommend themselves an award like John Kerry did during Vietnam as a result of an incident which would have netted him a Court Martial today.

    Which medal are you trying to claim that Kerry awarded to himself? ... :dunno:

    As a veteran, US Army 1970-71, I know that Purple Hearts must be signed off by a medic or physician. Medals like the Bronze Star must be signed off by the base commanding Officer; and Kerry's Silver Star was signed off by Admiral Zumwalt. .... :cool:

    And Zumwalt had close connections with Kerry's family.
