And I'll have to sew the CCB on for my husband. He always tells me he's going to nominate me for the CWB (the Combat Wifeing Badge).

That's a good thing. The CIB was created by General Marshall because the infantryman of WWII lived a life nobody else shared, and he wanted something to honor them, and them alone. They received far too few awards and decorations in comparison to other groups.

Warfare has changed, and something along these lines was definitely needed without giving the CIB to everyone.

Sarah - I think the wives and families receive too little recognition for your sacrifices! I'd award you a CWB, too :-)
I'm glad for your hubby and all of the others who deserve this recognition!

As a CIB winner - Korea - I welcome our comrades in action.
