Good  Morning, Vietnam................!

An Exclusive Radio Presentation of the


from the 1960s and 1970s 


  1. Hi Brock,
    Interesting bunch of "Ribbons!!" But, something jumps out at me big time! Looking at the bottom 3, the center and right are Viet Nam (US) and (Viet Nam) The center one ya' got for being there the green and white one was from RVN after 6 mos. Note each clasp on the V.N. was for being involved in some sort of OP. I don't know what the one on the left is but the one above it is the Natl. Defense (Red and Yellow) that we all got in Boot Camp!! That should be the first ribbon in the presentation if the wearer was from the Viet Nam daze for starters?? Yup The only ones I got were the Nat. Defense, and the 2 Viet Nams. Ribbons are to be worn in ascending order from bottom inside in groups of 3's. Any idea what the bottom left (red and tan)ribbon is and why is it first??
    Just wonderin??,

    1. As I remember, the bottom middle was like a campaign ribbon and you got one bronze star for each on, though a certain amount were traded in for a silver one.

      I had seven and will check this out tomorrow. Thanks.
