Navy Pyramid of Honor

The ribbons and/or suspension medals worn on the uniform of a member of the U.S. Armed Services, or on the civilian attire of a veteran, represent chapters in the history of military service. Behind each award is a story, usually spelled out briefly in a General Order or Citation.

In every case those stories are a source of personal self-satisfaction in a job well-done, and a family legacy to be passed on from generation to generation, long beyond the life of a military "hero."
