One thing that strikes me as rather strange is that today’s general wears a ton of ‘fruit salad’ on his coat. It’s gone even beyond merit badges for scouts.
Betrayus, for example, has one for combing his hair and tying his necktie correctly. It would be an interesting afternoon for him to explain exactly what each Dentine Chewing Gum wrapper represents.
A far cry from the days of DDE who wore no decorations on his jacket.
Apparently its a generational thing. “I, I, I, I, I!”
Yeah, I noticed that, too. It’s ridiculously over the top.
You have to have lots of other fruit to compensate for the lack of grapes.
It is my understanding that if you have earned medals in the military, you are supposed to wear them on your formal attire.
