Whenever an American serviceman is killed in war,
We see a picture of him in full dress uniform, standing in front of the American flag, looking stern and very brave. As I recall, pretty much every guy in the military has one of those pictures taken to send home to his family. Its a matter of pride for them and their family.
In the case of Geo W. Bush, the only military pictures of him include a shot of him in an F-102 cockpit on the ground, having his wings pinned on him by daddy Bush, standing alongside a jet in a TANG flight suit and of course that bogus shot of him aboard the USS Abraham Lincoln in Navy flight gear.
But how come there is no formal picture of him standing before a flag? Is it because such a picture, without medals and other awards and decorations, would look pretty puny. I mean, I have no clue if he even was awarded a Good Conduct Medal, or one for penmanship. He did surely did not get one for attendance.
Did our "war president" ever win a medal or decoration for anything?

2. Well we know he didn't get the "attendance" medal.
I'm guessing he didn't get the citizenship award either.

5. I believe he got the FYA medal
at least in reference to his SelEction. The FOOLED YOU ALL medal was awarded to him for obvious reasons which our 'free' press will discuss shortly.
