Features of wearing awards on the military uniform of the US Army

38
Order (award) levels or medals? Such a question does not stand before the American military, including the military "parade" military units. But only in one case: full dress.




Representatives of the Washington 8 Marine Corps unit (often called the Washington Marine Corps Barracks) use both of these options in training uniforms, ceremonies, and the changing ceremony. So, on the left side of the chest a set of medals is formed, and on the right - award (order) straps ("pads").

This version of wearing a military uniform is characteristic of both generals and representatives of the rank and file (sergeant).



In the photo - General David Berger.



The other day, General Berger replaced General Neller as commander of the US Marine Corps.

At the same time, the daily uniform of US military personnel under the statutory rules does not imply the wearing of medals. On the left side of the chest there are award trims, the right side is “empty”.



The field uniform of the American soldier wearing awards, including during the participation of a soldier in official ceremonies, does not imply.

    AND CORRECTLY. There should not be anything superfluous and bright on this form, otherwise what is the point in it?
    Order (award) levels or medals?
    Yeah, better than that.

          Yes, something I’ve never seen so that military orders would be awarded for labor achievements.
          It all depends on the status of the award.
          According to the Regulation (Appendix to Order No. 777), the medal “For Labor Valor” is awarded to civilian personnel of the Armed Forces of the Russian Federation:

          for an impeccable and efficient public civil service;
          for conscientious performance of labor duties, long and faultless work.
          Awarding the medal is made if the experience (total duration) of the state civil service (work) in the Ministry of Defense of the Russian Federation (Armed Forces of the Russian Federation) is at least 15 years.

    I think that it’s better to talk about your opponent. Including the wearing of a uniform. In the end, it's just interesting.
    There is such a resource. The author is Yuri Veremeyev, who unfortunately left for another world last year. Resource 0 "Anatomy of the Army" is called. Unfortunately, there is no electronic version (like a book) of this resource. It's a pity. You can learn a lot of interesting things there, incl. and about the form of clothing, ranks, how it all changed over the course of almost the 1600s in various armies. Incl. the rules of wearing the uniform of our "enemy No. 1" are also interesting. Yes, in principle, there is no uninteresting material. You can find everything, including the daily ration of the soldiers of the Red Army and the Wehrmacht, the daily ration of prisoners, etc. And none of this is from a lantern-based documentary

    Forgive me, Makar, but our soldiers are not given military awards because they simply serve. Behind them is the blood of the enemies they have killed. For veterans of the Great Patriotic War, these are Germans. For Afghan veterans, these are Afghans, etc. Let's not go deep into ideology. The soldiers are presenting a combat award not because he arrived by order to a hot spot and just rest there. He fought and killed. Well, then - it's like about "our scouts" and their spies "....

      In my opinion, such inaccurate formulations cause psychological pathologies in database veterans. Murder is a socially dangerous act ... illegal .. entailing punishment ...
      A warrior, on the battlefield, does not kill an armed enemy, but strikes (fights), "incapacitates" him ...
      But, unfortunately, in everyday life this is called murder, which subconsciously implies guilt.

    Perhaps this is probably a very important topic on which side the US Marines wear medals, and on which level. But it is probably more important that these awards do not obscure the brains of American generals / admirals and do not push them into yet another military adventure.

    It’s not “we are being presented with the same awards”, but you don’t have an understanding or you want to push it from scratch.

    The Order of Alexander Nevsky has historically been awarded for outstanding services in any field since the time of its foundation by Catherine I.
    There are nationwide awards all over the world. For example, the Order of the Legion of Honor, Padma vibhushan, the Order of Australia.

    Well, the Americans, as usual, showed themselves smarter than others. The North Korean model with pin orders is comfortable to wear, but bulky; the domestic one with awards on pads is more compact, but not convenient and not very aesthetic: as they say, orders are rubbish-rubbish. It would be worth considering a reasonable combination of these systems. And the American experience with pads and slats deserves attention.

    Beautiful parade. Yes, and in principle, the wearing of awards does not differ from our system. The same goes for voles. The same applies to Europe.
    Although not surprising. Warriors. Emigration. The mutual penetration of part of the culture over the past 100 years was enough in abundance.

    There is nothing incredible in such wearing (and awards and straps at the same time). And this concerns not only the "guard of honor".
    You just need to know a little about the features of the US award system. Relatively speaking, all the awards of a serviceman can be divided into two large blocks:
    - personal military awards of a serviceman;
    - awards of military units / divisions;

    Yes, American soldiers wear on their uniforms and awards, which were awarded to their unit, unit or formation (company, battalion, regiment, brigade, division) for outstanding achievements in combat training or military distinction. And these "collective distinctions" are worn just on the right side of the uniform's chest in the form of strips (as such, the insignia of these awards do not exist, except for the ribbons attached to the combat banner of the unit).
    Therefore, with the dress uniform, when a soldier puts on his medals, these bars remain unchanged.

    Thus, the strips on the right side of the tunic are nothing more than honorary distinctions of the unit where the soldier is serving. Like ours "Twice Red Banner, Orders of Suvorov, Kutuzov and Alexander Nevsky".
    It is worth noting that when transferring from one part to another, the difference bars of the part are worn by others. Except for those that were received by the unit while serving in it as a soldier. Those. the blue ribbon "Commendation of the President of the United States" received by the N-brigade will be worn by conditional sergeant Johnson and during his transfer to the M-brigade (it will be considered as his reward as well). From here, you can see a different number of collective distinction bars, even among the military personnel of the same unit.
