I see Chandler has the CAB, but that his Bronze Star is without the V Device. In fairness, I suppose the job requires effective management experience above all else and if that's his thing ...
Big deal. I've got the same bling. The only one that I don't have is the Legion of Merit; the Bronze Star Medal; the Iraq Campaign Medal (I left the Army in 1999); the Global War on Terrorism ribbon (established after Sep 11, 2001) and the Armed Forces Service Medal which is a generic catch-all medal created in 1992 for any activity not recognized by another campaign or expeditionary medal. (His is probably for service in the Balkans.) I don't have the new Combat Action Badge either, but that was established after I left the service. It was created for clerks and jerks who were rotating in Iraq and were jealous of the Combat Infantry Badge (but were ineligible for it because they weren't 11B/C or 18B MOS (Infantryman and Special Forces). It was created so that they would have something to wear on their uniform that says "I saw the elephant" in Iraq.
I shouldn't take the fact that his Bronze Star has no "V" device too much to heart. It was probably an "end of tour" award that Senior NCOs and officers awarded themselves in Iraq. My friend who was there in 2007 told me it was the true gen. (He was awarded "only" the Army Commendation Medal at end of tour solely because he was only a Master Sergeant (E- 8 (he says) ) A lower enlisted person with such an award as a Bronze Star was rare for Iraq and probably had an interesting story behind it.
