59. Well, the academies students were/are in a quasi military status. Not quite, but close enough.

I noticed that the current Point grads had the National Defense Service Medal. That's passed out during any 'war' period. That started during Korea, then Vietnam, now since 9/11. Kinda thanks for playing. That's about all I say about academy personnel minutia. Active duty Air Force nitpicking was bad enough.

Not a good idea getting me started on the current habit of cranking out bling, like getting a ribbon for graduating basic training. Well of course, wouldn't be here if you didn't. I'm waiting for here's a ribbon for showing up for work for more than two days running. Oh wait, that's the Good Conduct Medal.
