Could've been worse; he could be out trying to become a fighter pilot instead. Nice pic, and welcome aboard NCCM.

Oh, what the heck. At my wedding, I got the chance to pin a medal on my uncle, who served as a Marine from 1950-1953. He didn't have any of his awards from when he served, so I was able to get a copy of his DD-214 and checked -- weird as it is, the only award listed on there was the National Defense Service Medal (I'm sure he had more, but if it's not on the DD-214...), so I went down to the uniform shop and picked one up.

After our photography session was finished, I then proceeded to completely blow him away by re-awarding him the medal:



And yes, he's an uncle by marriage, not by blood.

Medals and awards didn't seem to have the priority back then they have today. Sir, great job! You made his day, and mine.

Thanks, NCCM! Glad you got a kick out of it. My uncle is usually quite verbose (he's a Pastor), but this time I left him totally speechless.
