Speaking for myself - I am against adding ribbons to the uniforms. All is well
as it is now. My Skipper when I was a crew member always used military insignia
on his uniform. Funny that he always seemed to promote himself every year -
would surely be a 5 start Admiral by now if he was still involved.
I believe that it causes more confusion with vets and only really satisfies egos.
Everyone would be better off with the sense of personal accomplishment rather
than the need to make someone else more envious of them because of a few pieces
of metal on their chest.
What I would love to see is the year pins made so that they can actually fit
through the material on the dress blues.
For what its worth. . .
