This one doesn't require a lot of soul searching. He's a fake. Quite apart from wearing BOTH a CIB and a CAB there's no possible way for this asshole to have a 3rd award CIB.


https://www.hrc.army.mil/content/Com...%20Badge%20CIB

Q4: Can a Soldier earn more than one CIB for multiple deployments to Operation Iraqi Freedom (OIF)/Operation New Dawn (OND), Operation Enduring Freedom (OEF)/Operation Freedom's Sentinel (OFS), and/or Operation Inherent Resolve (OIR)?

A4: No. Subsequent award of the CIB is not authorized during the same qualifying period/era. The qualifying period is defined as the contingency/conflict that the Secretary of the Army authorized combat badges to be awarded. The current qualifying period for award of the CIB is the Global War on Terrorism (GWOT). OEF/OFS/OIF/OND/OIR are operations within the GWOT contingency/conflict. No matter how many times a Soldier rotates to the theater, only one award of each combat badge is authorized.

Second and third awards of the CIB are indicated by superimposing 1 and 2 stars respectively, centered at the top of the badge between the points of the oak wreath.



To date, a separate award of the CIB has been authorized for qualified Soldiers in the following qualifying periods:

(1) World War II (7 December 1941 to 3 September 1945).

(2) The Korean Conflict (27 June 1950 to 27 July 1953).

(3) The Republic of Vietnam Conflict. Service in the Republic of Vietnam Conflict (2 March 1961 to 28 March 1973) combined with qualifying service in Laos; Dominican Republic; Korea on the DMZ; El Salvador; Grenada; Joint Security Area, Panmunjom, Korea; Panama; Southwest Asia Conflict; and Somalia, regardless of whether a Soldier has served one or multiple tours in any or all of these areas. The Republic of Vietnam Conflict Era officially terminated on 10 March 1995.

(4) War on Terrorism (Afghanistan, Operation ENDURING FREEDOM) and (Iraq, Operation IRAQI FREEDOM).

Sorry, I mistakenly referred to SDI as CDI. Correction, it's the Sonoran Desert Institute and he is listed as a military veteran employee. I would like with all the other vet employees, they should be able to sniff him out...unless "black ops classified" crap is thrown up.

Interesting note on the Pan Mun Jom CIBs....they were not awarded until 16 years after the 1984 Soviet Defector Incident....they were awarded in 2000 to all the members of the JSF QRF platoon that responded. I got assigned to
that same JSA unit less than a year after it happened, right after OSUT.

I missed a CIB in Korea by ten months, missed a CIB for Urgent Fury by three years in 1/75, and got out of 1/75 just a few months before OJC. Three near misses....two of them very close....

Yes. That is interesting. In the mid/late 80s', and though I did not serve with JSA, not based in Joint Security Area, Panmunjom, Korea, I have been there twice in a 1/506th HMMWV (which is a no,no to have that vehicle in the area); escorting two Czech "officers" in the vehicle (long story).

Sorry for the derail: One interaction with JSA in the DMZ: we were hunting pheasant in the DMZ: the CG, ADC (M), ADC (S), Div CoS and CSM. JSA came out and politely asked us to leave to the south. The expressions on their faces was priceless. 85 birds, and one small deer that day for dinner in the CG's mess.

His face looks familiar. IIRC, he was a support guy in Okinawa at 1/1 in the mid 1990's.

I was on Torii in 98, and know quite a few folks from 1/1. Do you know of any possible more specific time line?

1994 thru 1997 is when I was in A co. 1/1. That would be the timeline I would have seen him if my memory is correct.

Interesting that no address associated with an APO shows up. If I look at what big data shows on me I can tell I have lived OCONUS.
Doesn’t mean it’s 100% but pretty hard to escape even when trying
