    I drove up to Fort Greely last week, got carbon monoxide poisoning thanks to AM General. Sat in a tent playing video games (while providing voice and data through satcom) and was given a COA from the aviation unit I was supporting. I got a COA for a year in Iraq in 2005 while I was 1% overweight. This is why I am not re-enlisting. Thoughts? Opinions?

    COA = Certificate of Achievement
    basically one level above getting a coin and a pat on the back :rofl::rofl:
    Its not a medal or ribbon that you can wear on your uniform

    In the Army nearly everyone in my Brigade redeployed with at least an Army Achievement Medal to go along with the Iraqi Campaign medal
