Subject: Air Assault Badge

As a former 101st VN Grunt...Frankly, I don't give a fu*k about any stateside training qualifying badges. Get on the chopper, fly to LZ, get off the chopper...and you get a badge for that?!
How impressive.
The only badges that count to me are the CIB and CMB... and only if you actually earned them...and you know if you did or cheated to get it.
Yeah, one has to love those Field Grade Officers that were awarded CIBs to go along with their Silver Stars and a hand full of other American medals (not to mention the gook medal of honor medals and cross of gallantry with palm medals) because they sat on their asses while being "Advisors" to a bunch of those worse than worthless South Vietnamese gooks in uniform that I refuse to call soldiers.
