Heraldy items are kind of my inner shameful secret.

I make a big show of not wearing ribbons when I can get away with it, but the history behind the assorted badges and decorations of various militaries is very interesting.

Awesome collection, Nyles.

Cordell, Pop framed Grandpa's ribbons and decorations when he passed away. I was in the first grade at the time, it took me until the sixth grade to recognize the DSC ribbon and understood what Granddaddy meant when he once described "killing Nazis by the handful" with his BAR.
I like to think, that before that Navy SEAL double tapped bin Laden in the head, he kicked him, so that we could truly say we put a boot in his ass.
