Highly decorated. You have so much metal that you could make a plate mail suit with it. Do you ever wear it for Veterans related gatherings or is it permanently on display?

It is in a sealed case now so I will not be wearing it for any special occasions. I could get some copies and wear them.

KN,

That looks great. I was going to do a shadow box at one time but I never got around to it. I have my miniatures on my old Ness Blues uniform. Maybe one day I'll take a picture of them. But not now, my brother. This day is all yours with that darn nice looking shadow box.

Nice display. What are they all for I mean what do they signify? By the way are all soldiers able to tell what medals are for or do they have to ask just like I'm doing?

Most soldiers know what most medals are for. There are some that are very rare, like a Soldier's Medal, and most people would have to ask about that. The ones that are very easy are medals like the Southwest Asia Campaign Medal, The Army Achievement Medal, The Army Commendation Medal, the Army Service Ribbon, possibly the Bronze Star. In addition, KN has a few Unit citations in there, which are awards bestowed by the President, by Congress, or by the Army upon a unit for exemplary service during a certain wartime time frame. Plus, he has his marksmanship badges as well. All soldiers know what marksmanship badges are and what level of proficiency they signify.

I'll let KN describe his medals, his unit citations, and his various badges and what they represent or were awarded for. This is his to do. What I will say is he has quite a nice collection for someone who didn't stay in for as long as I did. I certainly didn't have a collection like that as quickly as KN amassed them. So my hat's off to my friend and to a true warrior.

Yes I have just a few nothing to major. The pin to the left of my name is the Regimental crest for the Military police corps. The ones below my name is my rank, the crossed pistol and the US symbols that are worn on the Class A uniform. Below that are two unit citations that were awarded to my Unit when part of my Unit in Korea had a key role in guarding the President (Regan) of the United States during his trip to South Korea in 1984.

The top is the ribbons I got. Ribbons are some metals and others are just service ribbons with nop metal associated with them. The metals I have are The national defense medal, The Southwest Asia metal, The Freeing of Kuwait metal from Kuwait, and the Freedom of Kuwait medal from Saudi Arabia, The cold war medal (Questionable), Korea Freedom medal? (Can not recall the exact name on that one, Reserve component good conduct medal. The ribbons that I have that have no medal is the Army service ribbon, Army over seas ribbon (Awarded twice) Reserve Component over seas ribbon, Primary leadership Ribbon (PLDC).

I've always wondered why the military uses medals for all kinds of things rather than a merit system. Medals, as nice as they are become bulky and turn the uniform into a colorful spectacle. They seem old fashion. That's no disrespect to kntoran and his medals because I do thank you for your service its just that I'm saying were in 2017, its time for a different method.
