ChipNASA: rudemix: ChipNASA: Gimli_Gloin: Bronze Star with "V" device. Not too shabby.

Hell I've got dozens of those. Metal of Honor too and a Flying Cross, and Titanium and Platinum Stars. None of that cheap Bronze, Silver and Gold stuff. Oh and a diamond encrusted Kevlar tiara.

Did you get them in the Core?

Hells Yeah. I was with the Green Berets, Special Unit Battalions.Commando Airborne Tactics... Specialist Tactics Unit Battalion.

You were a STUB? Man, they did some serious shiat. I treated one of the guys from STUB Team 3 for gingivitis he got while on a SLURP mission in Ong Fuk. Bad stuff, and painful too, but with his STUB training, he just sat cool and still while I trebbed out his gums with a #3 stem-probe. Never saw a guy do that awake, let alone without anaestesia.

FTFA: All she had from her father were two photographs. Long ago, her mother, maybe still struggling with grief, took all of Sergeant Stanley`s war medals, pins and photographs. She cut ties with her daughters and left Arkansas for a fresh start in Virginia. Not long after, everything was lost.

What an absolute farking coont.

Awesome that the daughter got her father's shadowbox back. Those things are precious. Can't say the same thing about mom abandoning her daughters and losing all her husband's stuff though.
