General Nagin is wearing seven rows of three ribbons, or twenty one various ribbons or awards meant for Military personel only.
A tip of the hat, a BRAVO ZULU, and a Hand Salute to an that can Identify all of them.
By the way someone else photoshopped the blue in his Beret to remove the Army insignia.
What an @ss...
I think I see a Vietnam service ribbon. Is he even OLD enough to have served in Vietnam?...........
I've been a freeper long enough to know if you ping Tonk He'll ping everyone that is anyone,
Same goes for you too, pookie.
I emailed a friend in the military, hoping to have an answer soon.
None of them are for being able to drive a bus.
Is that a photoshop of Gen. Honore?
I think I see a MUC (meritorious unit commendation)
I see the Air Force Good Conduct; Air Force Commendation; Silver Star; Bronze Star; to name a few. (none by the way in the correct order). Call me old and misinformed, but who the heck is General Nagin?
Nagin is a Gen-U-wine Unadulterated, Dyed in the wool ,No holds barred asshole. I am sure someone in here can identify the ribbons ,if they are real, I will be checking back.
Ask John Kerry. I hear he was in Viet Nam.
You do see a Vietnam Service Ribbon (actually the ribbon for the medal). I also see a Saudi Liberation Medal, an Air Medal, an NDSM (fireguard ribbon) and an ARCOM.
Is there not a law against impersonating a miltary officer and/or wearing unauthorized decorations?
There should also be a law against impersonating a mayor...he'd be in jail if there were.
Yeah, I saw that too.....Red on both sides and Yellow in the middle!!!
One of them should be for
"Expert Passing The Buck Horse's *ss".
It's got to be a really stupid Mardi Gras costume. I see he's got MG beads around his neck. How can such a beautiful city have such an awful Mayor?
No, I don't think so. He was on a horse yesterday in that outfit, I think.................with a cigar in his paw.
Wednesday, March 1, 2006 (New Orleans):
The crowds were small and the costumes wickedly satirical as Mardi Gras reached its climax in New Orleans on Tuesday.
The culmination of the eight-day pre-Lenten bash fell nearly six months after the August 29 storm that smashed thousands of homes and killed more than 1,300 people, the vast majority of them in New Orleans.
Even amid the typical debauchery - including early morning drinking and skimpy costumes in the French Quarter - there were no escaping reminders of the storm.
The Zulu Social Aid and Pleasure Club, the 97-year-old predominantly black club, paraded amid homes that still bear dirty brown watermarks from the floodwaters that covered 80 per cent of the city.
The club - which lost 10 members to Katrina - staged its annual parade with actual Zulu warriors from South Africa, a first for the group.
New Orleans Mayor Ray Nagin, who dressed up in National Guard uniform, said he was happy with the turnout, particularly the number of children who had come along.
The city still has less than half its pre-storm population of almost a half-million, but cheering revellers crowded into Bourbon Street, with many saying it was important to keep celebrating.
"You have to have fun, tomorrow is another day, today is Mardi Gras," said New Orleans resident Hall Moser. (AP)
