    Vietnam Service Medal (w/2*), Vietnam Campaign Medal (w/device), National Defense Service Medal, Good Conduct Medal (1st award) and an HONORABLE DISCHARGE!... That's the one that really counted... And I did serve with 1st Sgt Jimmy Howard at MCRD who was awarded The Congressional Medal Of Honor... Surely that must count for something?Whistling... This how it was!... Me and Sgt. Jimmy were like thisWink... Brother Glen

    I was just honored that they let me stick around. As for awards, a long time ago a very wise LTC told me that the Army awards system was pretty screwy, that you would get awards for things that didn't seem that special, and nothing for the times that seemed more deserving. I have found that to be very true. Here's a pic of me standing next to my favorite earthly reward.
