I got my good conduct medal back in August but didn't notice that I had it until last week. Turns out, I've been in the coast guard for the last 3 years because that's the medal I got. The Coast Guard Good Conduct Medal.

Lol. We have a dress uniform inspection in about 5 days....I should I buy the CGGCM and wear it since it's on y ERB/PPW.

No, not a stupid question. I would have to go to the admin clerk and show them the mistake that one of their counterparts made and just have them change it from CG to Army. It's an easy, quick fix.

Lol!
My old S1 we're always screwing things up like that. I'm pretty sure they did it on purpose for entertainment.

Lol if you ever go into the system its easy to understand why the mix up. The codes don't even match up to what makes logical sense. I always send emails to people to check their virtual ribbon rack to double check.

 I really shouldn't put it past them. We have a guy who has been a truckdriver for 3 years but if you look at his ERB, you wouldn't think he made it out of AIT because it's not on there.

 I am so ignorant to what other branches have/do so I never knew everybody had a good conduct medal. When I saw it, I got excited like "oooh! 10 points for something that I don't even know what!" but when I started looking it up, all I did was giggle. Like really guys, whoever these guys are, you gave me an award for a branch that I'm not even apart of?
