I assumed you were an old motherfucker who didn't know to change your GWOT-E to the Iraq or Afghan campaign medal.
still tho why are you so gay you're posting your stack on 4chan? do you just miss the oohrah or are you a huge pog that somehow got a car?
I earned the gwot towards the end of 2013 in Kuwait, and later in 2016 deployed and earned the operation inherent resolve campaign medal in Iraq along with my car. We learned about the campaign ribbon and that we were eligible for it about a month after we came back. I'm long out now.
stackbuilder sites seem off, but this is about 10 year's worth
Not bad, but my rack is bigger.
Pfft, my JROTC rack was bigger than that. Of course, they handed awards out like candy, but at least I clanked with every step I took thanks to the wall of medals going down my side.
Engineers clear the way.
I sang it in boot almost 20 yrs ago, I'll say it now, Engineers lead the way!
Apparently my command isn't eligible for them, even though we're FDNF. Somethin about it only for commands directly involved in or supporting conflict. At least, according to every first class and Chief I've asked about it.
Another Okinawan Marine here, I got a thick af POG stack
Stop posting rack builders, and post racks, noobs.
99% of all of them are just participation awards. Where you at a place when a thing happened? Okay, here you go. Put some colored silk on your chest. It's not super impressive. Usually only the top two or three are earned. And still, most of those are from just staying around long enough.
That's obviously a gross generalization. But basically true. There are only a small handful of medals to take any personal pride in. Shooting quals, while silly are one of the ones your personal skill is directly the cause of being awarded.
Conversely in my branch, the Navy I look at sea service ribbons like golf scores. You get one each time you spend 90 or more days out. I have more than I care to count. And I don't wear them. I get depressed as fuck when I think how much of my life I've wasted sitting at (some depth) under the ocean.
It's not super hard. Just, :snap: post. Are you a skimmer?
