I enlarged the photo a little to allow it to be seen more clearly.

General Nagin is wearing seven rows of three ribbons, or twenty one various ribbons or awards meant for Military personel only.

A tip of the hat, a BRAVO ZULU, and a Hand Salute to an that can Identify all of them.

By the way someone else photoshopped the blue in his Beret to remove the Army insignia.

You do see a Vietnam Service Ribbon (actually the ribbon for the medal). I also see a Saudi Liberation Medal, an Air Medal, an NDSM (fireguard ribbon) and an ARCOM.

FAKE!

Is there not a law against impersonating a miltary officer and/or wearing unauthorized decorations?

There should also be a law against impersonating a mayor...he'd be in jail if there were.

It's got to be a really stupid Mardi Gras costume. I see he's got MG beads around his neck. How can such a beautiful city have such an awful Mayor?

Wednesday, March 1, 2006 (New Orleans):

The crowds were small and the costumes wickedly satirical as Mardi Gras reached its climax in New Orleans on Tuesday.

The culmination of the eight-day pre-Lenten bash fell nearly six months after the August 29 storm that smashed thousands of homes and killed more than 1,300 people, the vast majority of them in New Orleans.

http://www.ndtv.com/morenews/showmorestory.asp?slug=New+Orleans+celebrates+Mardi+Gras&id=85305

Even amid the typical debauchery - including early morning drinking and skimpy costumes in the French Quarter - there were no escaping reminders of the storm.

The Zulu Social Aid and Pleasure Club, the 97-year-old predominantly black club, paraded amid homes that still bear dirty brown watermarks from the floodwaters that covered 80 per cent of the city.

The club - which lost 10 members to Katrina - staged its annual parade with actual Zulu warriors from South Africa, a first for the group.

New Orleans Mayor Ray Nagin, who dressed up in National Guard uniform, said he was happy with the turnout, particularly the number of children who had come along.

The city still has less than half its pre-storm population of almost a half-million, but cheering revellers crowded into Bourbon Street, with many saying it was important to keep celebrating.

"You have to have fun, tomorrow is another day, today is Mardi Gras," said New Orleans resident Hall Moser. (AP)

Every young man needs a father figure - it appears Nagin has adopted General Honore as his. ;)

I blew it up last night to take a look but it was very late. From all the bright and cheery colors I thought that some were Air Force.

Second row center looks like Army Good Conduct? Fourth down on the right looks like another service Good Conduct.

Bottom right is National Defence.

Second row up center looks like Army Service.


He is definatly a PX Warrior. He probly got 'em from Kerry.

I at least see a Rifle Marksmanship (Navy/MC), and I believe an Antarctic service ribbon (top left), National Defense, an Air Medal, looks like a Defense Meritorius Achievment, Army Commendation (?), and that's it for me.

What is this Mickey Mouse sh*t? What in the name of Jesus H. Christ are you animals doing (on my planet)? Why is Private (Nagin) out of his bunk after lights out? Why is Private (Nagin) wearing those ribbons? Why aren’t you stomping Private (Nagin's) guts out?

By the way, top row center is a Navy marksmanship medal, so at least there's no stolen honor in that one. Hell, even I have it.

As I gaze across the room to my recently retired husband's (AF 23 years)shadow box, I see many of the ribbons dishonored by General Chocolate. First of all, I notice that they are out of order, and he has mixed different branches of the military to make his shameful display. I find this disturbing and dishonoring to those who really do serve their country.

No, that's actually one huge ribbon for a newly-approved medal, the Cluster[bleep] Medal, for outstanding achievement in FUBAR. I think Ray-Ray might actually be the first recipient. (I hear Katie Blanco has been put in as well, but her paperwork is, appropriately, I think, being held up in the bureaucracy.)

Yes, there is. But I believe it applies only to military and veterans. As a civilian, and if he's never been in the military, he's able to wear whatever he wants, as long as he's not trying to impersonate an officer........

Ah yes, Gov. Blanco. The woman who refused to send in the National Guard because she "didn't want to put good people in harms way". And now Mayor Nagin mocks the National Guard.

I think he has just declared himself Generalisimo.
