Title: General Army Combat Recognition RIBBON
Post by: frenchie on January 06, 2005, 02:29:06 AM
Troopers,

Congress Act H.R. 4200, Sec 566 is seeking a generic RIBBON for all combat soldiers, except for infantrymen and medic.   Please go to the political section at that 11th ACVVC sight for my detail information.

Well as the highest KIA rate MOS for vietnam is the 11E 27% it would seem that being an 11B was safer maybe they should get the ribbon and we the  CAB.
