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.
What an @ss...
I think I see a Vietnam service ribbon. Is he even OLD enough to have served in Vietnam?...........
I've been a freeper long enough to know if you ping Tonk He'll ping everyone that is anyone,
Same goes for you too, pookie.
I emailed a friend in the military, hoping to have an answer soon.
None of them are for being able to drive a bus.
Is that a photoshop of Gen. Honore?
I think I see a MUC (meritorious unit commendation)
I see the Air Force Good Conduct; Air Force Commendation; Silver Star; Bronze Star; to name a few. (none by the way in the correct order). Call me old and misinformed, but who the heck is General Nagin?
Nagin is a Gen-U-wine Unadulterated, Dyed in the wool ,No holds barred asshole. I am sure someone in here can identify the ribbons ,if they are real, I will be checking back.
Ask John Kerry. I hear he was in Viet Nam.
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.
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.
Yeah, I saw that too.....Red on both sides and Yellow in the middle!!!
One of them should be for
"Expert Passing The Buck Horse's *ss".
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?
No, I don't think so. He was on a horse yesterday in that outfit, I think.................with a cigar in his paw.
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.
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.
Yes, Sir, General Chocolate, Sir!
Oh, that Nagin! I thought it was some new hip/hop artist or something.
Oh, a few of us here are jumping on this one!!!
Give us a few minutes!
Ah, taking advice from Bubba...who himself started quite young:
Thanks...I think :-(
Who's that on the left holding the Super Gumbo cover?
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.
LOL ......... that looks like BillyJeff when he was a little kid.
"What is this Mickey Mouse sh*t? What in the name of Jesus H. Christ are you animals doing in my head? Why is Private Pyle out of his bunk after lights out? Why is Private Pyle holding that weapon? Why arent you stomping Private Pyles guts out?"
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 arent 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.
Brown the ex-FEMA director.
Michael Brown, Former FEMA head.
This guy reminds me of a real life Jethro Bodine. I'll bet Nagin is a double knot spy too!
two up from National Defence I see one that looks like a Purple Heart with an oaf leaf(purple two white stripes and a device in the middle).
When I was in the service, I could have sworn that wearing the military uniform by a civilian was illegal. Did I get that wrong?
They are all out of order from what I can tell...but here is a try.
Korean Service/legion of merit/DON'T KNOW/nato medal/philippine liberation medal/united nations medal/republic of vietnam campaign medal/philippean independance medal??/distinguished flying cross/don't know/medal for humane action/don't know/rsv component achievment medal/purple heart/don't know/bronze star/air medal/american defense service/war on terrorism expeditionary/war on terrorism service/national defense.
Thats the best I could do.
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.
Disgraceful, isn't it?
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.)
Chocolate Soldier looks like a lot of empty calories...
At least it has done us a favor and sterilized itself!
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.
