herrick medal

That's just a myth I think.

What about the guys who operate out of Bastion? edit-meaning the ones who live in Bastion but arn't exactly remfing it.

Certain personnel qualified for the OSM Afghanistan by supporting the initial operations there from out of theatre locations. Their medal did not have the clasp 'AFGHANISTAN' though. Ergo, they would not be able to wear the rosette on the ribbon bar.

A combat Infantryman in a Patrol Base gets the same medal as a clerk in the air conditioned comfort of Bastion, Lash or Kandahar. It's just a campaign medal, not a combat clasp.
