Whoa! Neat! You guys are pro!

How come those Generals in the US army wear so many ribbons? Are they really won through war or are they just official "decorations"?

I know a chap who has one medal and 11 clasps to it, that is one for battlefield he had fought in. One thing about the UK they love to do things on the cheap.

He has a good collection! BTW, is it true that the more action you see, the more ribbons you get?

Not necessarily, sometimes it's just being at the right place at the right time. But if you think about being associated with the military for 20-30 years you are bound to be in the right place at the right time.
