CIB for a CA officer?
What do you all think of this? Personally, if he was a CA officer not an Infantry Officer, he is not entitled to the CIB and should remove it at once. Hell, the award was revoked by HRC.
If he was engaged with the enemy as a CA officer, then the CAB would be authorized.
Proud POG I am with my CAB from OIF.

I have this opinion of anyone who wants to wear military anything, authorized or not, on civilian attire: Jerk!

SFC Birk Ellis fully disagree.

I wore mini-medals on my suit at my veteran father's funeral - in compliance with AR 670-1. I would have worn a uniform but I am fat with a beard, and felt that would have been disrespectful to the uniform. But I sure as hell honored my father's service.

He should wear the Combat Action Badge.

The way democrats act today, They will bring him back to active duty, Court Marshall hymn with new Critical Race Theory woke JAG officers and knock him down to E1 with a dishonorable discharge.

They'll treat it the same way as they treat it a retired.A-10 Warthog pilot who happened to be there at the january sixth insurrection.

Democrats will do anything to destroy a Republican.Even though this guy is making himself a target wearing the CIB that he is not on authorized to wear.

I am a staunch, hard core Republican, not saying I want bad juju to happen to him but I do want him to admit he is not entitled to wear it and then, if awarded, wear the CAB.

Nelson is wrong and he knows he's wrong. He needs to stop wearing the CIB. If he does rate the CAB, then award it to him and be done with it.

If you did not serve as an infantry officer take the F’in badge off. If you’re entitled to a CAB put that on your lapel. Do not wear something you are not entitled to - full stop!
