  2. Michael Jackson and Elvis must be dying of envy right now. However, everyone has the right to be proud of their service to their country. I see no harm in it.

  3. Just to clear things up. These, of course, are not the official decorations. These are done by soldiers when they are leaving the army/navy.

      • They obviously don’t.

        Most officers cant wait to get rid of the green-tabs. And since there is no “code” governing regular discharges, most officers won’t give a shyte about what the conscripts wear on ‘their special day’.

  4. The honors and recognition symbols for a person who has honorably served in the military take many forms. That these are a bit more showy than the ones we in the west might be used to is a pretty minor detail.

    Considering the tough duty and long terms away from home, a little celebration is in order.

    Best wishes to all of the new civilians! I hope that the skills you learned in service serve you and your country well!

  5. Yet another stupid/funny tradition.
    After the end of the term yo take your uniform and decorate it as crazy as you can.
    It’s worn only for the discharge and on the way home.
    Many of those guys wear chevrons like “Military Intelligence Special Forces” which trust me they have never belonged to.

  6. They look like if they are going to a Bad-Taste-Party 🙂
    But during Soviet Union times everyone looked like going to a Bad-Taste-Party.. 😀

  7. I think they look great, unlike plonkers making silly comments online they have the balls to look the way they want to look.

  8. Pretty good idea, putting blood type and Rh over left breast pockets of utility uniforms. As to the silliness, I’d say they earned the privilege. Looks like it’s a lot of fun.
