Right after WW2 when he was CNO DEC45- DEC 47.

I don't see any of his campaign ribbons. Would you consider him out of uniform or just lackadaisical-- should he have been charged?

OR, maybe just like the Army there is not a requirement to wear your ribbons and medals?

    Let me know when you find the Navy Regulation that requires awards and medals.

    Pre-1960s top Admirals and Generals made their own uniform regulations. There are many examples.

    Thanks, Dan-- this was part of a debate on a requirement to wear ribbons and awards. Poster stated Navy regulations required personel to wear all awards and ribbons.

    Understand, thanks. "3 and 4-Stars (when appropriate, 5-Stars) still made their own uniform "rules" up through the early-1970s. The uniform regs/award precedent posters were for everyone else.

    I've seen many E-8s, E-9s, and O-4s and above who wore only their "senior" award ribbon on their dress uniform.

    For me it became annoying to buy a new rack and all new ribbons in order to add a campaign medal or another oak leaf cluster!

    I was also not a fan of pin on badges, so I didn't wear much of anything on my ACU uniform.

    Roger that.

    BTW, I'd like to mention that you have a exceptionally high quality collection in military and other items.

    Thanks Dan, I appreciate it.

    I will post some more embroidered items when I get a chance.

    What is the title of your book?

    It's entitled U.S. Navy Tailor-Made Dress Blues, Liberty Cuffs and Sailor Folk Art. Here's a link to a cover shot:

    Thanks for asking,
