Re: Gold in the original Saudi given Kuwait Liberation Medal

I always figured it was the little palm tree on the ribbon that was suppose to be gold? I also remember signing for it and being told they were expensive, but should have been paid for by Kuwait. Initially they weren't gonna let us wear a foreign medal, but changed their minds.

Re: 1st armoured division Erlangen, Germany "Iron Tigers"

Sorry for the late reply. If you see this, my battery supported 2/70 AR with FIST teams. Had some buds work with you. I supported C- 4/70 (Black Lions), myself.

Hey there. I didn't run into any of your guys, but I believe the FIST team was out of our section. Did you ever run into them much?

Re: Social Security

I went on SSI for a motorcycle crash 12 years a go. Even as screwed up as I was, I was denied initially. I had good insurance through work, and filing for SSI was part of the disability contract. Upon denial, they provided a lawyer, who hardly did anything other than file for the appeal hearing. I t...

Re: Combat patches

I believe the gist of the order is, if your unit is replacing part of a unit or rounding out another unit, then you are allowed the option. For example, I was in 1st AD, but am not authorized to where VII corps patch, because my unit is already under vIIth and has a patch. Guys in 3rd ID were given ...

Re: Weather in your area.

Got around 15-18 inches the other day. When I finally got a daoy to catch up all the plowing I have to do, it warmed up and the snow got heavy. Now we're back in the cold again. Looks like next weekend will be warmer. Hoping for a February Thaw this year. No where to move all the snow and my road is...
