That would be pretty cool, but maybe change up the requisites a bit to make it a little bit harder, considering a lot of us do some pretty brave\heroic\stupid stuff during ops.

That one lad from Essex.

I personally think that 'Medals' are a step a little too far. 

Remember that this is supposed to be a relaxed fun natured group being serious in gameplay and less serious on the 'military unit' stuff. 

Before you know it we'll be doing drill and shouting 'sir, yes sir' at orders.

Not to mention that getting medals is a crappy thing anyway, not the getting of them but what you had to do to even be considered for the award.
Also, in Britain, we don't have separate medals and ribbons like the Yanks do. They are one and the same. Ribbons just represent the medal itself in absence of the actual gong on your uniform when it is inappropriate to wear it. (such as around the office, informal visits)  


I've noticed @Goodson has a few ribbons. Can we shrink them a bit, they are a touch on the large side.

The two things we said aren't even that similar mate lol. He suggested we get a medal which is the VC, and I stated that the requirements should be more tough than the actual VC requisites, because this is a game and you can do all sorts of things without the burden of death on your shoulders


Ontopic, though. How often do these get thrown out? Is it just whenever, or is there a set date similar to that of the promotions?

A few people have mentioned that the ribbons look too large. I think this may be a cache issue, as they should be very small. Can you try refreshing?

They look like this for me:

Were oversized for me at first too, but seem to have sorted out now.

Why does it say that you have 5 ribbons, but only 4 are displayed?

This is because I've been awarded the service ribbon twice (which gives me the 2 star version of the ribbon), so technically I do have 5 ribbons in total. It sounds like this may confuse people, so I'll look into changing the ribbon count.
