Journeyman said:One of the troops showed up with a bag of black thumb tacks and the clutch thingee from the back of ribbons, jump wings, etc. Works great.
And he was smart enough to give one to the RSM, so there's no 'fashion issues.'
Or you can give one to the RSM ;DBzzliteyr said:See, I personally would rather see the shiny well made pin we have (that looks like the center of the poppy) than a boring black thumbtack but to each his own.
Journeyman said:You don't see the thumbtack because it's smaller than the flowery-shaped black part of the pin and blends right in.
See? With budget cuts curtailing training, we can focus on these important things. :nod:

cupper said:I was out about 10 years before that, and have been in the US for the past 10 years, and the one or two Remembrance Days I have been home for I never really noticed that the placement was changed. :dunno:
That could actually have been an "airforce gal" as (for whatever reason), females wear commendation bars on the pocket flap. That was actually a discussion item in the minutes of the Dress Committee meeting a few posts back.Journeyman said:We got sent a pic today, as in "this is how it's done," of some airforce guy wearing it on his DEU shirt pocket flap....but he also had a Commendation bar there too, rather than on the pocket itself.
