Almost ready for a Shadow box


Recommended Posts

Here are all the ones I've personally been awarded over my 22+ year career in the USAF. Hopefully they'll end up with a collector someday when I'm gone and not wind up in the dumpster.

:cheers:

Hi Tony,

Very nice.

Could you put a name to the medals for the uninformed like me.

Thank you,

Don

David S. Wins the "Double-Double" award for getting them all correct. And yes, I have ten other ribbon onlys on my rack. Maybe some day I'll post a picture of my "Body armor" as the kids call it.

As to the In-N-Out reference, I too am from SoCal originally.

Cheers

Heres the body armor. I like to wear these on Mondays, because people think you got into trouble over the weekend.

Back in the day, unless we were scheduled to fly, we would wear our blues Monday thru Thursday then we wore a flight suit or fatigues on Fridays for "Warrior Day". Yea, cold warriors fighting the Soviet bloc. At least we knew who the enemy was and where they were at. We didn't have to go looking for them hiding in caves and villages. But I digress.

So, heres my resume in case anyone is hiring.

    • Sounds great other than the Orange & Mango squash only because I prefer cran-pomegranate juice.
    • "(...) disgusting herbal concoction (...)" I took note of this description, to enrich my otherwise limited, English "Wortschatz"...
    • At work the standard indian tea such as PG tips is referred to as chimp tea. This goes back to the days when we had a Spanish girl working for us whose command of the English language was extremely limited. One lunch she said she was going to the shop could she get anything. I asked if she could get a pack of tea bags. She returned with some disgusting herbal concoction. I tried to explain what was required but without success. I then remembered PG tips had a picture of a chimpanzee on the packe
    • When I read Lapsang Souchong i decided to post something about these Tea . Many years ago I dont  know about Lapsang until I read James Michener book Centennial and the description of the savour of the Lapasang as a mix of tar and salt & smoked made me proof . It was exact ! and i liked it since then .
    • I have been known to drink Lapsang Souchong and Tea, Earl Grey, Hot... both "without pollutants". I normally have one mug of coffee in the morning, then spend the rest of the day drinking Orange & Mango squash (by the pint). Then evening comes and it's a pint, followed by red wine with dinner and sometimes a drop of Laphroaig afterwards.
