RE: I agree completely. How wonderful that both your Parents were in the Navy in WW2!! My Grandparents were both in the Army with my Grandmother being a nurse and my Grandfather being a medic. My Grandmother got out of the Army when she married but would have been at Pearl Harbor during the attack had she not gotten out. Thank God your Dad (and our Military) didn't have to go invade Japan!!
RE: CMO I understand completely!!! I see people leave medals that are completely wrong or military patches that are for the wrong service and it just drives me crazy!!! I got onto a guy once for leaving a Confederate flag on a Union guy's memorial. I mean, some people have NO CLUE what they are doing, but like you said, we just have to grin and bear it!! I have left Birthday tokens on people's Angel Day's so sometimes I just get in too much of a hurry and I make silly mistakes...but they are honest mistakes!!! :)
