She’s about 50 and has one medal, common for some of the more deployment-phobic elements of HMF, how does that compare in FRA?
She was just awarded this medal on the picture, so as normal when receiving a decoration, she is not wearing any other.
Depending on where one is serving, I would say that on average, French service personnel with 10-15 years of service tend to have between 6 and 10 medals.
 
My (very minor) Sarajevo scalp wound was sewed up by similarly clad lasses, at the facility in the basement of the PTT.

I am afraid things have changed; it's baggy uniforms for everybody today, except of course the UBAS type shirts.

Some country has had a Nazi takeover and their Krystalnacht has begun.
You'd think the star of David flag on their uniform shoulder patches might give a clue, the strict orthodox think they can do what they want as the government of Israel is illegitimate as it can only exist when the messiah comes.
