These are the ribbons from my uniform last worn in 1996.............I'm surprised that I found them.....................in the bottom of an old garmet bag I kept my uniform in........

    Truth be told I had been out for 20 years when I joined th Army Guard, It all started because my brother and I both wanted to go and join a new unit in our area, Helicopters.........( He was a Helicopter Mechanic from Nam) but they rejected him due to poor hearing and took me so I got out of the Navy in 1967 and went into The Army National Guard in 1987 and stayed until 1996 when I had to get out due to medical reasons.
    BTW, there were NO women on ships when I was in the Navy....and to tell the truth I can't remember why I got the ribbons.

    Cross-overs sometimes made for interesting combinations. I knew a Major once who wore both an Army aviator's wings and a Navy submariner's badge.

    I am suprised-- I didn't think the wear of USN badges was permitted in the Army uniform.

    I do remember a few who wore ribbons and medals from another service.

    Actually the more I thought about it-- I recall a former USN member who used to wear his SEAL Trident. He was a CPT or MAJ.
