Hey! Look At What We Got!

Those of us who had been with our old unit when it deployed to New Orleans this past Fall received the Louisiana Emergency Service Medal this past weekend. The Inner Prop and I show ours off for the camera.

Here it is in all it's Pelican glory.

Sorry, when I read, "Look What We Got", and saw "New Orleans", what sprang to mind was hookworm!

It's certainly a LARGE medal, and looks very impressive against your uniforms.

Hearty congratulations to the both of ya!

Oh - now that you mention it - "Look what I got" and New Orleans isn't the best connotation in the world... STDs? Arrested? Beads for flashing people? Maybe I should have gone with a different title... heh.

Congratulations Major and Inner Prop.

Err, Major, is it usual to wear your new medal on your pajamas? ;-)

Are the orders signed by my heroes Mayor Nagin or Gov. Blanco? I'm so glad they are there making sure the tourists had Mardi Gras.

It's good to see that Louisiana can get things right from time to time.

As a state service award, no orders are cut. The authorizing memorandum was signed by the LANG TAG, MG Landreneau.

FYI, I wish Lt Gov Landrieu had won the mayoral election. New Oreleans needs a competent mayor, and I was hoping for a difference the next time I go to visit Louisiana. But competence and politics are not mutually inclusive.
