21. Chickenhawk First Class with Distinguished Fleeing Cross.

I was very surprised to find no mention of this poser in the official list of Chickenhawks, maintained by the New Hampshire Gazette.

According to their Hall of Shame,...

When an American male (or an especially belligerent female) makes the challenging transition from late adolescence into early adulthood, he is faced with many decisions. One certain, specific combination of choices will result in his becoming a chickenhawk: choosing to “support” war, while also choosing not to serve in the military. His motto becomes: “Let’s you and him go fight; I’ll hold your coat.”

Depending on external circumstances, such an individual may become one of three varieties of chickenhawk:
• If there is no draft, and the nation is at peace, the individual becomes a Common Chickenhawk;
• If there is a draft, and the nation is at peace, the individual becomes a Chickenhawk First Class;
• If the there is a draft, and the nation is at war, the individual becomes a Chickenhawk First Class with Distinguished Fleeing Cross.


I have since corrected that oversight and nominated tRump. Rather than use a photoshopped image or caricature, I think this one is suitable.


You're welcome!
