Topic: If you don't have a book yet, good resources online...

If you are looking to identify ribbons or medals or any other uniform items, it's handy to have a book on the subject. If you don't yet have one, there are some good MilitaryMedals resources online.

I agree with you 100% "if we are going to war we should prepare from the neck up along with from the neck down, especially if we have to be on foreign land!!" I was in the Gulf War which has been compared to the Korean War as far as length and violence, but I and we still have mental issues along with physical.

The reason why you don't have the GWOT-E is because you received the Afghanistan ribbon instead. The GWOT-E is mostly for areas outside of Iraq and Afghanistan. Unless you deployed to one of those countries before there was a medal for them, in which they would have given you both (Iraq and GWOT-E, or Afghanistan and GWOT-E) once they were introduced.

It's easier to do this. Plus 2 OLC and a V
device on my Arcom. 2 OLC on my AAM.
2 Campaign stars on my OIF ribbon.
