I'll never forget when I was stationed in Hawaii and I went out to a bar called Nashville's for a buddies bachelor party. We asked the waitress what she would recommend...her response, "We have this new beer called PBR..."

SSG Squires it is not a Bronze Star ribbon its a Medal. Remember that you do not want your smart ass soldiers make fun of you. I cannot speak for the Army I can speak for what I have seen there is a medic out there who has two BSM's with V devices he was an E4 last I saw him there are a couple of people I know who actually earned their BSM's and I am sure there are many people who have earned theirs as well. But I can name 26 soldiers who were given a BSM as a tour award and not one of those people left the wire, is this appropriate no! I will guarantee you there are thousands out there that were given as tour awards. And yes it does seem that E-7 comes home with a BSM and leaves many younger soldiers asking questions. It is one of the many injustices you will deal with in your Army career do not let it get to you. I was waiting to catch a flight once and heard the CO tell the XO to write a blanket award for the Unit to get CABs when the XO said Sir only 3 of soldiers were in the contact the CO said he did not care, and there you have it.

I know the actual device is a star. I was poking fun at the blue ribbon award this site awards and at the same time giving a nod towards the brons star discussion that is currently trending.

As I mentioned in that thread, I feel that the Army award system has become inflated.
