Combat Infantryman Badge - awarded for: being in the infantry, being assigned to an infantry unit actively engaged in ground combat, and actively participating in such combat.

It's Veteran's Day in the USA. My sincere respect to all veterans everywhere.

I would like, on this special day, the man finally understands that war is unnecessary to sacrifice millions of lives for nothing and unfortunately does not prevent the idiots from continuing to demolish, not least that 'small wars with their neighbors.

@Marie LC: I agree completely.
