Here's mine. I heard that my unit picked up one or two more awards that I am eligible for after I seperated service, but I don't know what they are.

AF Outstanding Unit w/2 devices
AF Good Conduct w/4 devices
NDSM w/1 device
AF Longevity Service Award w/3 devices

According to the DD214; ITEM 13.

I don't know if I really earned the Combat Readiness Medal. The criteria didn't seem to apply to my tour in a Ground Launch Cruise Missile unit, but that's what is on the 214!

Ok, how the hell do I upload it... HELP!

Big_Baazzoo
23rd October 2005, 05:48
okay I was never in the military, for several reasons, none relevant here...but I come from a military background, and I actually knew what "show your rack" meant. And have respect for them. My brother is in Indiana right now getting ready to come out and play in the sandpile with you grizzled vets. Look out for him, his name is Dave and he's in the 220th Transportation Corps US Army.

Sometimes I wish certain civillian jobs would adopt the same practice...it's like wearing your resume on your chest. ... Not just the fruit salad, but rank, unit affiliation, "hash marks" etc. Very often, the "FNG" shows up on the job and sometimes I am Him and sometimes I am "The Old F@#$%^r" and it would be helpful to be able to see, at a glance, where a guy stands in the "pecking order". Sometimes some mouthy apprentice gives me Bullsh@t at first and a couple hours later, he comes up all smiles asking if he can be of any help...somebody told him I'm a Journeyman and he better watch his P's and Q's. Some times I tell some loudmouth A-Ho%e to "Shut The Fu&k Up" and find out he (or she) is a 3rd generation Journeyman and I Owe Him (or Her) an apology.

I Figure I'd be some Master Staff Chief Top Petty Officer even though I have a college degree, because I am not "Officer Materiel". I can get the guys to do whatever you want, skipper. Give me my pick of my squad and we'll storm whatever ya got. I'd be the perfect "wingman". I got yur back. I don't know or care much about where we're going or why...but I'll see to it you get there in one piece.

When we ride, I almost never am in the front...that's cool, like I said, I don't care much where we go or why, I'll ride your roller coaster, just take me somewhere cool. Just remember, I got your back.

Back to our "racks".

I figure I've got several "World Premiers" which would be good for a unit citation each, most certainly a Purple Heart with Oak Leaf Cluster,
and maybe a couple medals for going "above and beyond". Certainly the CIB. And most certainly "Hash Marks" up to my elbow.

The other thing good about ribbons is that they only show accomplishment. They do not give out ribbons for mistakes a person makes. This can only serve to make a person proud to own them by (mostly) earning them.

Wow....I can't even recall what happened to mine after so many moves since ETS from both services. I'll have to dig out my DD 214's tomorrow.

Would be nice if the gubmint would finally approve a Cold War Service ribbon or medal.

Well, it was stump the dummy night for me...I created the rack, but for the life of me couldn't figure out how to copy it over here...so for the old school folks (like me), I'll have to write mine out:

Air Force Commendation Medal w/ one oak leaf cluster
Air Force Achievement Medal
Outstanding Unit Award
Air Force Good Conduct Medal (never got caught)
Army Good Conduct Medal (never got caught, either)
Air Reserve Meritorious Service Medal w/ four oak leaf clusters
National Defense Service Medal w/ one oak leaf cluster
Vietnam Service Medal w/one oak leaf cluster
Air Force Overseas Short tour ribbon
Air Force Overseas Long tour ribbon
Longevity Service Award w/ five oak leaf clusters
Armed Forces Reserve Medal
NCO Professional Military Education Graduate ribbon
Small Arms Expert Markmanship
Air Force Training Ribbon

Well, it looks purdier on the rack! I'll try again tomorrow...

24th October 2005, 21:12

Army Achievement Medal
Army Good Conduct Medal
National Defense Service Medal w/ 1 oak leaf cluster
Iraqi Campagn Medal

Everything I did was "classified, off the record", they didn't give ribbons and metals to us (originally there were 13 of us), cause we weren't supposed to be where we ordered to be and we weren't supposed to do what we were ordered to do. Hell, I didn't even get a "Good Conduct" metal, but I do wear my sniper's pin , it's on my vest............

20th November 2005, 03:37
National Defense [gee-dunk], Viet Nam Service, Viet Nam Campaign, Viet Nam Honor Service, Good Conduct, Combat Action, couple more but I forget. Glad to see you boys have been busy. Although this is not one of my more favorite threads as spending time in hell wasn't any fun. If it wasn't for medals and ribbons there wouldn't be any war. Just an opinion from an honorably discharged and decorated vet.

20th November 2005, 06:54
I've got about the same situation as Dar. My DD214 say "because of the classified nature records are retained at blah blah blah". It's been a long time but I do know I got 5 Air Medals (4 Oak Leaf Clusters) and the usual assortment of National Defense, Good Conduct (my didn't get caught medal), Outstanding Unit, Viet Nam, Korea, etc.

Mrprez
20th November 2005, 13:50
The usual unit medals but the one individual medal I received was the AF Commendation Medal. Since I was a Minuteman III Missile Systems technician, the farthest overseas I could go was to Malmstrom AFB, MT! 1973-1979

If you served, be proud.
If you didn't, be proud.

The military can't get it's job done without the support of the civilians.

So I say that all have served the best they could. :clap :clap :clap

air drops on C-123B's on my first tour and C-123K's on my second. The K

I never got to fly on a C-123, but almost did once. :) We were down at Ft. Benning doing drops for the jump school and there were three planes, us (C-141), an active duty C-130 and a Reserve C-123. This was in 1981 so they were still flying them at some units. I was tempted to do a couple of passes with them but my aircraft commander didn't want me to. The C-123 guys were flying circles inside our tracks and dropping troops left and right, it was fun to watch. It was a K model with the jets too.

OK... I bet mine is the smallest....The only one I can honestly claim to have is Army Reserve Components Achievement. Reserves from '71 to '79. At the time I thought it was the right thing....married, trying to go to school, kids, am not a dodger or co, nor did I want to leave the States and head north.
Is this good or bad? I thought good at the time. Now I think differently.
I have the utmost respect for our military. I still wear a POW bracelet for a Viet Nam MIA (and I always will, I'm on the third one now).
My hat off and a salute to our military.

If you don't have 'thin ribbons' and would like some without paying an arm and a leg for them, I make them. If you would like some, all I will charge is materials and shipping. I've not had an opportunity to make a set with the spacing between each row and do not know of any way to do so with the resources I have. If you're interested in a set or two, PM me or shoot me an e-mail. Again, I'll do this for any of you who would like it at cost, no profit on my end since you have such great taste in 'scooters'.

I'll post a pic of the set I made for myself if anyone would like to see them.

Most importantly, thank you to all my brothers and sisters who have served and those still serving.

I was ambletory so they put me to work in ortho putting casts on fellow Marines back from Viet Nam. I did this for months, I guess they were hard up for cast techs.

Just like it looks:
Air Force Achievement Medal, Meritorious Unit Award (w/ Valor), Outstanding Unit Award (+ 1 oak leaf)
Air Force Good Conduct Medal, National Defense Service Medal, Global War on Terrorism Expeditionary Medal
Global War on Terrorism Service Medal, Air Expeditionary Service Ribbon, Longevity Service Ribbon
NCO Professional Military Education Ribon, M-16A2 Expert Marksman, Air Force Basic Training Ribbon

PS The AF gave the option to members who have only deployed in support of either Operation Iraqi Freedom or Operation Enduring Freedom once to wear either the Global War on Terrorism Expeditionary Medal OR the Iraq Campaign/Afghanistan Campaign Medal, respectively. So for example if you deployed to Iraq twice, you can wear both. If you were really lucky and have been to both Iraq and Afghanistan and have done either more than once, you can wear all three!

Anyway, I've only been to Iraq once, so I wear only the Global War on Terrorism Expeditionary Medal.

1998: Following an intense work up period Carl Vinson participated in RIMPAC ’98. The carrier steamed from Bremerton in early Nov. for its eighth deployment to the Western Pacific and Persian Gulf. On Dec. 19, Carl Vinson launched air strikes in support of Operation Desert Fox, and continued support for Operation Southern Watch in enforcing the no-fly zone over southern Iraq. Vinson was awarded the Navy Unit Commendation Medal and was once again was awarded the Battle "E" for Efficiency.

1999: Carl Vinson maintained pressure on Iraq by launching several air strikes against selected targets located in the no-fly zone of southern Iraq in support of Operation Southern Watch from January to March. As a result Vinson was awarded the Meritorious Unit Commendation. In July, the ship entered Puget Sound Naval Shipyard for an 11-month Drydocked Planned Incremental Availability. The Navy spent more than $230 million for equipment upgrades, a new local-area network, new berthings, and several quality-of-life upgrades.

2000: Carl Vinson finished the overhaul period in June 2000 and began the pre-deployment phase of operations. The ship got underway for sea trials, TSTA, FEP, and COMPTUEX in the fall, operating off the coast of Southern California with Carrier Air Wing Eleven and other ships in the battle group.

2001: From January to June, the carrier spent most of the time out to sea preparing for the ship's twelfth deployment. Carl Vinson steamed out of Bremerton, Wash., on July 23, and after stopping to on load Carrier Air Wing Eleven at Naval Air Station, North Island, Calif., headed west. On Sept. 11, as our nation was rocked by the terrorist attacks, USS Carl Vinson was rounding the tip of India en route the Arabian Gulf to enforce the no-fly zone over Southern Iraq in support Operation Southern Watch . At that moment, the Gold Eagle changed course and headed to the North Arabian Sea, where our battle group would stand ready to answer the call of freedom. That call came, and on Oct. 7, 2001, just 36 hours after we welcomed our new commanding officer, CAPT Richard Wren, the Carl Vinson and her battle group launched the first strikes in support of Operation Enduring Freedom. For 72 days, we remained on station and together with Carrier Air Wing Eleven conducted more than 4,200 combat sorties in the War on Terrorism. In mid-December, Carl Vinson stood down the watch and headed home, visiting Singapore for Christmas.



2002: Carl Vinson returned from her historic deployment on Jan. 23. For their support of the nation's war on terrorism, the crew received the Battle "E" and also the Navy Unit Commendation medal.

Everything I did was "classified, off the record", they didn't give ribbons and metals to us (originally there were 13 of us), cause we weren't supposed to be where we ordered to be and we weren't supposed to do what we were ordered to do. Hell, I didn't even get a "Good Conduct" metal, but I do wear my sniper's pin , it's on my vest............

Really ??? I say you're a low-life, bottom-feeding, scum-sucking, wannabe, oxygen-thief.

Your Good Conduct ribbon is classified ??? You'd best read "Stolen Valor" and be well-advised that the FBI now prosecutes for wearing ANY unearned badges or ribbons. You had best "classify" that sniper badge before someone sees you with it and reports your sorry butt.

I have an online network of about 300 Green Beret Special Forces men that would LOVE to talk to you further about this.

Really ??? I say you're a low-life, bottom-feeding, scum-sucking, wannabe, oxygen-thief.

Your Good Conduct ribbon is classified ??? You'd best read "Stolen Valor" and be well-advised that the FBI now prosecutes for wearing ANY unearned badges or ribbons. You had best "classify" that sniper badge before someone sees you with it and reports your sorry butt.

I have an online network of about 300 Green Beret Special Forces men that would LOVE to talk to you further about this.

Iraq Campaign/GWT (Ex)/GWT (Svc)
Reserve Medal/Army Svc/Overseas Svc

and CAB

My 201 was lost sometime in Iraq so I'm not sure about the GWT (Ex). It was given to me, but doesn't appear on my 214 so I don't wear it on my uniform. I usually always make copies of crap, because we all know how it is, but I just didn't have the resources.

And to all the vets. Welcome home guys.

1998: Following an intense work up period Carl Vinson participated in RIMPAC ’98. The carrier steamed from Bremerton in early Nov. for its eighth deployment to the Western Pacific and Persian Gulf. On Dec. 19, Carl Vinson launched air strikes in support of Operation Desert Fox, and continued support for Operation Southern Watch in enforcing the no-fly zone over southern Iraq. Vinson was awarded the Navy Unit Commendation Medal and was once again was awarded the Battle "E" for Efficiency.

1999: Carl Vinson maintained pressure on Iraq by launching several air strikes against selected targets located in the no-fly zone of southern Iraq in support of Operation Southern Watch from January to March. As a result Vinson was awarded the Meritorious Unit Commendation. In July, the ship entered Puget Sound Naval Shipyard for an 11-month Drydocked Planned Incremental Availability. The Navy spent more than $230 million for equipment upgrades, a new local-area network, new berthings, and several quality-of-life upgrades.

2000: Carl Vinson finished the overhaul period in June 2000 and began the pre-deployment phase of operations. The ship got underway for sea trials, TSTA, FEP, and COMPTUEX in the fall, operating off the coast of Southern California with Carrier Air Wing Eleven and other ships in the battle group.

2001: From January to June, the carrier spent most of the time out to sea preparing for the ship's twelfth deployment. Carl Vinson steamed out of Bremerton, Wash., on July 23, and after stopping to on load Carrier Air Wing Eleven at Naval Air Station, North Island, Calif., headed west. On Sept. 11, as our nation was rocked by the terrorist attacks, USS Carl Vinson was rounding the tip of India en route the Arabian Gulf to enforce the no-fly zone over Southern Iraq in support Operation Southern Watch . At that moment, the Gold Eagle changed course and headed to the North Arabian Sea, where our battle group would stand ready to answer the call of freedom. That call came, and on Oct. 7, 2001, just 36 hours after we welcomed our new commanding officer, CAPT Richard Wren, the Carl Vinson and her battle group launched the first strikes in support of Operation Enduring Freedom. For 72 days, we remained on station and together with Carrier Air Wing Eleven conducted more than 4,200 combat sorties in the War on Terrorism. In mid-December, Carl Vinson stood down the watch and headed home, visiting Singapore for Christmas.



2002: Carl Vinson returned from her historic deployment on Jan. 23. For their support of the nation's war on terrorism, the crew received the Battle "E" and also the Navy Unit Commendation medal.

HEY,, I was on the CHUCKY "V" also :)

I can't post links yet either. That site was missing one of my ribbons anyway. My Navy unit got an Army Superior Unit ribbon, for work we did in Bosnia for the Army. I also picked up an Army Achievement Medal for one of my tours there.

Here it is as listed on my DD214, they are not in the correct order though:
National Defense Service Medal, NATO medal, M16 Expert Ribbon, Army Superior Unit Award, Naval Sea Service Ribbon (4), Navy Good Conduct Award, Navy Efficiency Ribbon (the Battle E), Army Achievement Medal, Humanitarian Service Medal, Armed Forces Service Medal, Navy Unit Commendation Medal, Pistol Sharpshooter Ribbon

Four rows of three for a total of 12.

I did not serve. I was a stoner in and out of high school and thought I had better things to do. I totaly regret a lot of decisions I made back then. I feel like I waisted my time after school and couldve done better. cant take it back now though.

I got mind replaced afew yrs back hope this helps some of you.
Have you lost military service medals, decorations, or awards that you or a family member earned and need to replace them? Find out how to request for replacements and what forms you will need to fill out.

Medals awarded while in active service will be issued by the appropriate service if requested by veterans or, if deceased, their next of kin.

Medals awarded while in active service are issued by the individual military services if requested by veterans or by the next of kin of deceased veterans. Requests for the issuance or replacement of military service medals, decorations, and awards should be directed to the specific branch of the military in which the veteran served. However, for Air Force (including Army Air Corps) and Army veterans, the National Personnel Records Center (NPRC) verifies the awards to which a veteran is entitled and forwards requests and verification to appropriate service department for issuance.

COLD H2 Certificate Recognition War
In accordance with section 1084 of the Fiscal Year 1998 National Defense Authorization Act, the Secretary of Defense approved awarding Cold War Recognition Certificates to all members of the armed forces and qualified federal government civilian personnel who faithfully served the United States during the Cold War era, from Sept. 2, 1945, to Dec. 26, 1991.

Who is eligible?
All members of the armed forces and federal government civilian personnel who faithfully served the United States during the Cold War era, Sept. 2, 1945, to Dec. 26, 1991.

This Center will, upon request, provide copies of DD 214's and other separation documents, as appropriate, to authorized requesters. These documents may be used to apply for the Certificate. Complete instructions for obtaining a copy of your DD 214 may be found under How to Request Copies of Military Service Records. However, this center does not have the application form available, nor will we be able to supply the Certificate itself.

For more information concerning the application process visit the Army's Cold War Recognition Certificate webpage.

Hey, we love to see a nice girl's rack. If the site's bandwidth goes down then they need to upgrade :p

If you like all that rack stuff, hit up www.snipershide.com and look for the g/f thread in 'photos' that rules the longest forum length post

We have a different award criteria in the UK. Taken at the recent Rememberance Parade with my best mates.

I have an eighth, but didn't mount it prior to leaving the forces, it was only a give away Queens Diamond Jubilee Medal, awarded if you had served for at least 5 years prior to that anniversary.

Medals are L-R:

Gulf War 90-91, Bosnia, Kosovo, Afghan, Iraq, Queens Golden Jubilee (as above) and Long Service Good Conduct Medal.

Nowhere near as impressive as some of the other posters on here.
