It is. Just as I made sure I was able to avoid the award formations.

Not out of any shame or form of protest.

You can get a free set of all of your awards too. I got one when I amended my service record to add the Korea Defense Service Medal (KDSM), since it was awarded retroactively.

It's a records request really, with options to amend your record thrown in if I remember right...I did it a couple years ago, so it's fuzzy

Did you notice the one on the left "The Lords of Darkness".
Those are pretty rare as that unit 1/245 Aviation was incorporated into the 160th SOAR in 1990.
Saw an original like mine on EBay and the asking price is $225.
