    Anyone know anything about this?

    Buddy said he saw something about it in the Marine Corps Times but I can't find anything online about it.

    That's the current instruction I believe, however I have read they want to eventually (they're making it sound like we'll be there forever!) have it work like the overseas/sea service ribbons, and you'd get an extra star for each deployment to whichever theater.

    Saw in the Globe today that they have been authorized for the ACM and ICM.
    It just says to wait for specific guidelines in the MARADMIN which will be coming out soon.

    :cool:

    we got the gwot x, our first time in fallujah, then we got the ICM our second time, so though i have ben twice, i can't get a star, just like no star on combat action because i was in the same AO twice.

    Wouldn't you like to know.....:squint:

    Just one. Not many chances for a B-52 crew chief to go to Iraq, but I do what I can.

    Saw some folks wearing them on it the other day.
    I've still been unable to see the actual MARADMIN for it though.

    That's going to taste terrible. I hope you don't hold yourself to that.
