The party of the troops.

Not so much.

Wow. Speak of the devil - Rick Hillier, gone but not quite forgotten because he left in his wake some really stupid ideas - LIKE SPECIAL COMBAT BADGES FOR MILITARY PERSONNEL!!!

Two things. The combat badge is a very bad idea. Always was always will be. Second, that does not change the fact that Gen (ret'd) Hillier was the best Gen we have had since WW2.

The badge is bad because, there would be many troops seeking combat outside of their given orders just so they could get one. The civilian run DND has always been criminally slow at notifying the military run CF.
