Quote from: baronet68 on July 26, 2020, 04:15:14 amI would personally recommend the McChord Rack Builder for all of your miniature medal arranging needs. No personal experience with VG's mounting service. I've had good luck with UltraThin for ribbons but never used them for miniature medals.

Quote18.104.22.168. Medals. Miniature medals may be worn centered above the pocket so that the bottomportion of the medals are ½ inch above the CAP Crest or service badge. Only CAP Miniature Medalsmay be worn. Either full size or miniature attachments (clasps, stars, etc.) many be worn on the miniaturemedals; however, all devices will be the same size. Wear all, some, or none.
Quote11.5. Policy for Wear of CAP Awards Decorations on Civilian Attire. Members may wear CAPminiature medals on a civilian tuxedo or business suit for formal occasions. Female members may wearminiature medals on equivalent formal dress. No other wear of CAP Awards and Decorations on civilianattire is authorized

Quote from: Eclipse on July 27, 2020, 05:36:42 pmI'll probably pass - ~$200 for the medals, devices, and bars, for something I >might< get to wear once a year.Another defeat snatched from the jaws of victory by NHW - would it really be that big a deal to just allow the normal ribbons?Then there's that little issue of the AW-FOUI that's not allowed to be worn...
Quote from: Eclipse on July 27, 2020, 10:34:55 pm^ You missed the point almost as hard as NHQ did.The number of times the average member needs something "formal", in this context, is near zero.The number of times they need to match their peers is often.
Quote from: Eclipse on July 28, 2020, 02:49:24 amAll members are equal, right?Except the ones who get to stand next to their peers in a servicecoat while they wear a shirt and tie, or worse, the real estate jacket.And we've all accepted the fact that at least 50% (probably more) ofthe adult membership are not allowed to wear USAF styles.NHQ had an opportunity to make a decent compromise, but instead chose to go with something that seemed like a good idea at the time, but ultimately doesn't really help. In 20 years I've been to about 3 events that were appropriate to "semi-formal", and I'm probably on the mid-range of most members.
