Like other veterans, we have wondered about all the ribbons and medals that are worn by the likes of former four-star general, now-disgraced, David Petraeus and Marine Gen. John Allen. Petraeus can hardly fit all of his ribbons and medals on his uniform. Gen. Allen has quite an assortment of ribbons and medals also. Both Petraeus and Allen have been in the news often lately due to the Petraeus sex scandal involving a woman who wrote a book about him and the thousands of emails Gen. Allen sent to a socialite in Florida.

We certainly aren’t against giving medals and ribbons to deserving military, although like other trophies when given too freely it diminishes their value.
