Comparative Decoration

The previous post comments about the level of decoration on an American general. I will point out, by way of contrast, that the Commanding General of Allied Forces in WWII was somewhat more modest in his accoutrement.

Even when meeting with other senior commanders, all of whom are showing off decorations to their peers, the Commanding General was lightly adorned. None are as highly adorned as today's senior officers.

Just sayin'
