Do not believe that the information is right, there is no deployment for 17 years that I know of....Of course its been a long time for me to be on active duty....I did not get special treatment as a matter of FACT The Vietnam Vets were called BABY KILLERS and that is a FACT.....enjoy the service with respect...

John, it doesn't say it was a single deployment for 17 years. They are probably career military and were stationed at different spots overseas. I'm sorry for what you went through, but can you just let this service woman enjoy her recognition!?

I thought I was saying the information reported lacks the research for good reporting...if U read the last comment I said enjoy the service with respect, not making a bad comment....And what is THEY it was only her right....
