    am I correct in noting that the Army general who appears on the President’s right in the first picture, then on his left in the second, does NOT have the all-important blue and silver CIB (Combat Infantryman’s Badge) at the top of all his ribbons, but rather a silver paratrooper medaillon? It is unusual that a non-combat experienced officer makes general.

      I do not know, but a lot of “unconventional” things went on in the military under BHO’s reign of terror upon our Republic.

        Deplorable _Infidel: Isn’t that the truth!

        The worst part were demanding affirmation promotions or promoting females over males – a total screwed up thing to do when a long-time disciplined structure is targeted for a social engineering experiment.

        Trannies openly serve in the military? The worst idea ever although it definitely would have created a morality and discipline destruction. Not many men in uniform would be okay having to be in a foxhole together. I admit that I’m somewhat old fashioned because I’m just not open to any violation to the 10 Commandments given to us by God himself via Moses.

      A social promotion. Obama promoted many people due to their ‘social’ status.

      The Army Officer standing with PDJT and DefSec Mattis is a LTG, and the commander of West Point. The Navy Officer shown is a VADM and head of the USNA.

      • He’s the Superintendent, a 3-star position.

        The Commandant over the Corps of Cadets is a 2-star.

          Thank you for the update. “Be My Little General” is used to remember
          B – Brigadier General – 1 star
          M – Major General – 2 star
          L – Lieutenant General – 3 star
          G – General – 4 star

          So did I miss on the rank of the Army officer? No.
          The article named the Navy Officer as a Vice Admiral, so I used it, without reference to the number of stars.

      Just because he doesn’t have a CIB DOESN’T mean he hasn’t been in combat. Just means he hasn’t been in a combat zone in an infantry MOS.

      There are no branch specific badges like a CIB for tankers, combat engineers or artillery men.

        Well, that sucks! Those soldiers should be recognized as “veterans forged by combat” as well. REMF’s, not so much.

        Probably so. But until recently the CIB was considered a Sine Qua Non for general officer rank. In an officer’s professional career it’s not like he can’t do a 6-months stint in a combat zone as an infantry leader.

      D’OH! You answered your own cynical question.

      Think about it: How can a a paratrooper sport an “Infantry badge”? While paratroopers fight on the ground, they ARE NOT true infantry! Same is true of Air Cav, Artillery and Combat Engineers: NONE are Combat Infantry, but they all can see plenty of combat!

      Sheesh! Use common sense, Man!

        WRONG. Airborne divisions operate as straight leg infantry most of the time. Here is a snippet from Wikipedia:
        “The first U.S. airborne operation was by the 509th Parachute Infantry Battalion in November 1942, as part of Operation Torch in North Africa. The U.S. 82nd and 101st Airborne Divisions saw the most action in the European Theater, with the former in Sicily in 1943, and both in Normandy and the Netherlands in 1944. The 17th Airborne Division deployed to England in 1944 but did not see combat until the Battle of the Bulge in January 1945 where they, along with the 82nd and 101st Airborne Divisions were deployed as ground troops.”

        My mother’s first cousin parachuted into the fields outside Ste. Mere Eglise on June 5, 1944. Once there though, he fought as an infantry man in a Parachute RIFLE Platoon (i.e., Infantry) of the 507th Parachute Infantry Regiment (Infantry) of the 82d Airborne Division, for the 22 remaining days of his life.

        The 507th PIR is now known as simply the 507th Infantry Regiment, even though it conducts the US Army Airborne School at Ft. Benning, GA. Ft. Benning is the Home of the Infantry and of the Infantry School. Here is what Wiki says about the 507th’s conduct of the Jump School: “The United States Army Airborne School – widely known as Jump School – conducts the basic paratrooper (military parachutist) training for the United States armed forces. It is operated by the 1st Battalion (Airborne), 507th Infantry, United States Army Infantry School, Fort Benning, Georgia. “

    Great to see a football game played for the thrill of the game and honest rivalry instead of money. Nice to see that there were no COWARDS there kneeling an d what a thrill to hear our national anthem sung with respect instead of the screeching and other crap from the wnnabees. Very refreshing to see. Thank God for our military. The only gubbermint group that actually fights for and loves the USS. POTUS did the whole thing with respect and honor.

      O/T but Quick observation:

      The president for whom the entire United States political, government, and media apparatus cleared a path and eased his way into office, Obama PLAYS on golf courses.

      The president who was elected by the people who make this country work, despite the entire United States media, political, and government apparatus being allied in an effort to stop him, Trump BUILDS golf courses.

      Says a lot about the relative character of either man.

    Great game and congrats to WP. I am a Navy mom, and my prayers came true! Great game and no player was injuried! God Bless all of them with their graduation in May and with their service/branch selections! We are blessed with all of these team players! They will continue to “Make America Great Again!”

    The TV Army-Navy game presentation was glorious, a celebration of pageantry of America; truly beautiful, and moving.

    President Trump was a majestic leader presiding over warrior competition, such a man, perfect Commander in Chief, and President.
