An interesting CIB on a 196th Inf Bde (Sep) GI circa late 66 into 1967, more into 1967 I should think. Can't really tell what it is, it's not a embroidered on cloth type as far as we can see, so a direct embroidered, or a painted theater made metal example, your thought please?

Army Dress White uniform worn by GEN Samuel Walker. He was promoted to 4-star rank in 1977 and then retired in 1978, so thus we have a time frame for this picture.

MSG Cooper Turner, KIA Korea 1951. Of note here is that he appears to be wearing some sort of dark backing behind his CIB.

Slightly off topic, but here is a picture of my father's company (A 1/505th Infantry) being awarded their CIB's by 3rd Brigade 82nd Airborne Division commander Col. Alexander R. Bolling, Jr. - August 1968. Note the certificate in Col. Bolling's hand as well as a copy of my father's certificate. I started a thread about these documents since they do not seem to be standardized at all and are apparently not even issued by all commands like certificates for decorations are.

Gen. James K. Woolnough, commanding general of the Continental Army Command in 1968, wearing bullion CIB and general stars. Notice he is only wearing the ribbons for his decorations and European-African-Middle Eastern Campaign and Korean Service Medals.

Current Army Chief Of Staff General Mark A. Miley is a two time recipient of the CIB, the first for Operation Just Cause in Panama and the second for the Operation Iraqi Freedom.

 

Ranger and Special Forces... yet he's rockin' the 101st CSIB! ;)
