Greetings and Salutations to All my Kith and Kin and All the Ships in Outer Space:

For the best effect, please enjoy watching, in "FULL SCREEN" mode, this automated video series of a collection of my homemade amateur video recordings of ME (!) performing MY ORIGINAL COMPOSITIONS, consisting mostly of songs and poetry I wrote, with a wee attempt at a bit of comedy thrown in.

For the best effect, please enjoy watching, in "FULL SCREEN" mode, this automated video series of a collection of my homemade amateur video recordings of ME (!) performing some of my ASSORTED FAVORITE SONGS that other people wrote and recorded.

On each of these collections of my homemade amateur video recordings, you have the option of either watching the entire series, as it automatically plays one video right after the other, and/or watch only selected individual homemade amateur video recording(s) by merely specifically choosing any one (01) or more of my homemade amateur video recording(s) in that collection.

If you watch my homemade amateur video recordings at the YOU TUBE web site, you'll be able to see the lyrics posted in the space directly below each of my posted homemade amateur video recordings.

These homemade amateur video recordings are not in any particular order, but are all mixed up.

Folks, I'm merely an unknown amateur, and I don't make any money from any of this.

I reckon if it weren't for the invention of personal computers and the establishment of the Internet (which I personally regard as divine gifts from our Almighty God), no one would ever hear my songs. 

Thank you for watching.

Retired personnel and former members of the Army (as described above) may wear all categories of medals described in this regulation on appropriate civilian clothing.

This includes clothes designed for veteran and patriotic organizations on Veteran’s Day, Memorial Day, and Armed Forces Day, as well as at formal occasions of ceremony and social functions of a military nature.

Personnel may wear either full-size or miniature medals.

Personnel who wear medals on civilian clothes should place the medals on the clothing in approximately the same location and in the same manner as for the Army uniform, so they look similar to medals worn on the Army uniform.


Comrades in Arms:

Here at the Armed Forces Retirement Home, one of the guys, who was considering placing an order for some medals from an Internet dealer, was listing all of his decorations, and I advised him that he ought to order his medals mounted for wear, as that is the easiest way to put them on your clothing.

He said he could understand putting his medals in a display case mounted on the wall of his room, but when would he ever actually WEAR his medals?

I've worn my medals on a lot of occasions, so I've been thinking about that.

Since our Country is at war, it's especially appropriate for us veterans to wear our military decorations on our civilian suits.

We need to set an example for the younger generation.

It's even more true for those of us who served in the old Republic of Viet Nam, because of how we were mistreated and dishonored by our fellow Americans when we made the horrendous mistake of coming back from the war.

The first time I ever wore my medals was when I got married.

(For a larger view, please click on the photographs.)

I was a Specialist Five in the United States Army, and, in compliance with the uniform regulations for enlisted personnel which were in force at that time, I wore them on my dress green uniform, along with a white shirt and black bow tie.

I also wore that same uniform when my wife and I attended a formal military ball at the NCO club celebrating the Cavalry's birthday.

As a civilian, I wear my medals whenever I attend a military funeral (and unfortunately, I've been to a BUNCH of military funerals).

Here in Mississippi, it's too hot to wear a proper coat and tie, so I settle for pinning my medals to a khaki shirt.

If it's an event which is not a formal occasion, then I just wear the riband rack, similar to how we wore our "Class B" uniform when on active duty in the United States Army.

Attending the Virginia Scottish Games and Festival
Anytime I march in a parade, I always wear my medals.

Anytime I attend a public patriotic or military event, I wear my medals.

Anytime I'm wearing my Scottish kilt, and sporting full Highland regalia, it will include wearing my medals.

National Tartan Day is a fine example of that.

I wear my medals when celebrating the birthday of the United States Army.

I wear my medals on Veterans Day, Memorial Day, and Armed Forces Day.

I wear my medals on Independence Day.

If invited to a dinner, I wear my medals on Thanksgiving Day.

That was inspired by my experience as a soldier in the old Republic of Viet Nam going to Australia on a Rest and Recuperation leave in November of 1971, and learning that Thanksgiving was a uniquely AMERICAN holiday, not observed anywhere else.

Other days to wear medals might be the Nineteenth of April, Constitution Day, and Bill of Rights Day.

It's whatever is patriotic and respectful.

I've learned that the full sized medals should be worn on the breast of the suit coat.

For formal evening occasions that require a tuxedo, miniature medals should be worn mounted on the lapel of the suit coat.

When wearing miniature medals while attired in evening dress, unit awards are not worn.

New Year's Eve Dance
I also bought a set of miniature ribands, which I wear on the lapel of my suit coat when I go to church, or anywhere else that requires wearing a coat and tie.

Miniature Riband Rack
for wear on lapel of suit coat.
At the time that I bought them, I bought the type that pin on, but I've since learned that the type that are magnetically mounted are a better buy.

Also, for years, I wore my Expert Rifleman Badge when wearing my medals, but I recently learned from a retired United States Marine Corps gunnery sergeant that firearms qualification badges are not supposed to be worn when wearing the full sized medals.

When purchasing medals, I recommend getting two sets, one mounted for wear, and the other for a display case mounted on the wall.

When you are initially awarded your medals and/or decorations, be sure the accompanying CERTIFICATE and CITATION are included, as those official documents will look especially impressive when properly framed for prominent display on a wall in your home or office.

An example of the CERTIFICATE
accompanying award of the BRONZE STAR

An example of the CITATION

Also, if you desire, the Department of Defense will engrave your name on the medal, free of charge.

If your military decorations are lost, stolen, or accidentally destroyed, the Department of Defense will replace them, free of charge, - - - ONCE!

Subsequent replacements of lost, stolen, or damaged military decorations must be at the recipient's own expense.

Looking from left to right:
My stepmother's awards, my father's medals,
and my own decorations.
As another bonus for all of us military veterans, several years ago, the Department of Defense issued an announcement, which was also published by the Department of Veterans Affairs, stating that all military veterans, even when attired in civilian clothing, are now permitted to render a military salute (i.e., the position of "PRESENT, ARMS!"). 

In other words, you can salute like a soldier, instead of having to place your hand over your heart, like a civilian would.

Do you know the difference between a "medal" and a "decoration"?

Although we generally use those terms interchangeably, they are NOT the same thing.

The definition is determined by the shape of the metallic device which hangs below the ribbon.

If the metallic device is a round disc, it is a "medal".

A metallic device with a distinctive shape, such as a cross or a star, is a "decoration". 

Military decorations, service awards, and medals are often mistakenly confused with one another.

Decoration is a term for awards which require specific acts of heroism or achievement, whereas a service award or campaign medal is awarded for serving in a particular capacity in a particular geographical area and time frame.

In either case, an award or decoration may be presented as a medal.

So, don't be embarrassed to wear your medals in public.

Why else were they awarded to you - - - , just so you could keep them hidden in a drawer or on a closet shelf?

Thank you.

It was not part of their blood.
It came to them very late,
With long arrears to make good,
When the Saxon began to hate.
They were not easily moved.
They were icy - - - willing to wait
Till every count should be proved,
Ere the Saxon began to hate.

Their voices were even and low.
Their eyes were level and straight.
There was neither sign nor show
When the Saxon began to hate.
It was not preached to the crowd.
It was not taught by the state.
No man spoke it aloud
When the Saxon began to hate.
It was not suddenly bred.
It will not swiftly abate.
Through the chilled years ahead,
When Time shall count from the date
That the Saxon began to hate.

Comrades in Arms:

Here in our own dearly beloved United States of America, the First Day in the month of May shall be a National Day of Remembrance for the forgotten veterans of the Cold War, with an annual officially scheduled Memorial Service to be held in Arlington National Cemetery.

While investigating some proposed Congressional legislation on the Internet, I accidentally stumbled across H.R. 1968: COLD WAR SERVICE MEDAL ACT OF 2011.

I had always thought that the National Defense Service Medal was awarded for service during the Cold War, but it turns out that I was wrong.
National Defense Service Medal
Other veterans have informed me that they served during the Cold War when the National Defense Service Medal was not awarded.

As for me, I have already received my COLD WAR RECOGNITION CERTIFICATE (I spent a year in Germany before going to the old Republic of Viet Nam), but I reckon another medal would just be icing on the cake.

Click on image to view a larger version
As it turns out, a Cold War Victory Medal does currently exist, but it is only authorized for veterans of the Cold War who are currently serving in the Louisiana National Guard and the Texas National Guard.

Veterans of the Cold War who are currently serving in the Alaska National Guard may wear the ribbon, but not the medal.

IF and when the award of the Cold War Victory Medal is ever approved for all other veterans, it will be worn after the lowest ranking United States military award, but before any foreign awards.

I already sent a message to the Honorable Steven M. Palazzo, the Republican Congressman representing the Fourth District in Mississippi, urging him to vote in favor of H.R. 1968.

You might wish to contact your own Congressman and express your opinion regarding this matter.

As I wonder and marvel about the possible reasons why our Department of Defense hasn't officially approved awarding the Cold War Victory Medal to all of the military veterans who served honorably throughout all those many long, rather strenuously terrifying tense years of that global thermonuclear Mexican standoff, it occurs to me that the issue is purely political, primarily concerning international diplomatic relations with the former Union of Soviet Socialist Republics (i.e., the "U.S.S.R.", or in Russian, "C.C.C.P."), which the United States of America may be somewhat reluctant to embarrass by declaring that our side defeated Russia and won a "victory".

Also, now that we American citizens are currently forced to endure life in a genuine totalitarian police state which continues to ignore both, our divinely inspired Constitution of the United States of America, and the unalienable rights of the individual, we really have to question WHO really did win the Cold War?
