A Marine who earned the nation’s second-highest military valor award for heroics in Iraq is questioning why a police officer who took the stand during George Zimmerman’s trial was wearing ribbons she did not earn, including one reserved primarily for World War II veterans.  Follow the link to this article

I only know as much about the Trayvon Martin case as the average person, but this did catch my eye.  Some of the comments indicate that many police departments routinely use military ribbon patterns for their own awards, despite this being against federal law.  Apparently there are police supply catalogs with special ribbons for police use, but these apparently are not "pretty" enough.  Another reason, albeit a small one, to reform our law enforcement community.
