Re: What are Theater Service Medals?
Bob C What bothered me was that I was told to go to an army surplus store in search of some ribbons that my husband had lost. I took along copies of the orders that had entitled him to the ribbons but I discovered that anyone veteran or not could purchase ribbons and medals with no evidence that they had been earned. Since then I have been leary of men whose displays showed a number of actual Purple Hearts or other prestigous medals. And I have read that some who claimed great feats with the medals to prove them had actually earned none. Sad! And that is what I was referring to. Sorry if I offended. Mary
