  • Another OIF Medal?

    OIF Vets,

    We already earned the Iraq Campaign Medal. So what are you thoughts on this?

    This is a token of gratitude from the Iraqi government. While there are a dozen reasons to gripe about it cynically, perhaps those eligible will accept it graciously in the spirit in which it is given.

      I think it's a great gesture - a lot like the KLM and the LoK medals from Saudi Arabia and Kuwait during Desert Storm.

      We'll all look like despot dictators, festooned with medals!

        Haha. Very true SFC. But veterans of other wars have received numerous medals for the same campaign. It probably take 10 years to finally get approved.
