Outstanding DD214

Boone said there was a DFC left off.  He left service at Jefferson Barracks.  I entered service at Jefferson Barracks.

OK guys.  A guy wins 6 bronze stars and an air medal with 4 oak leaf clusters and no one wants to comment.  Strange.

Color me the same.  Thanks for the comment.  I have his passport.  I did not realize you needed a passport in the military.  I have never heard of some of these places.

I'm pretty sure you don't need a Passport in the service.  Probably for personal travel on Leave, etc.?  What were some of the destinations and dates?

You are spot on.  These stamps are from the 1970s.  I have found Peru in 76, Venezuela, Entrada in 75, Venezuela, Salida in 75, Rio in 77, Salida in 76, Venezula in 76 from the Consulado stamped in a 30 day turista , Columbia in 76, France in 71, Argentina in 76 with a 64 inspector, Venezuela in 76, Panama ,Salida, and Tocumen in 75, Brasil in 75, Venezuela in 74, Brazil again in 75, Venezuela again in 74 at Maiqoetia, Nubia in 70 and someplace that only stamps in Arabic in 1977.   It looks like he loved his South America visits.  My family tells me that he ran over a land mine and was in a comma for two months.  I don't see that on his DD214.  I wished I had talked to him more when he was alive.  I did not know he was a world traveler.  We went deer hunting one year, but I think he got bored.  No wonder.

So I am wondering if it is actually Bronze stars or Service stars to be worn on the campaign ribbon. The way it is worded actually would make me suspect it means service stars to be worn on the campaign ribbon instead of the actual bronze star.
However I could very well be wrong and I will admit I don't know enough about it. I might just be making a fool of myself.
However either way he sounds like a good dude to have on our side of the war.

My dad was awarded battle stars to be placed on his europeon campaign ribbin.  He was awarded 5 battle stars.  His DD214 named the battles that each star represented.  I don't have a photo of Lt. Haddock in uniform, so we cannot reference his ribbons.  You would think one of those bronze stars would have a V on it.  Guess not.  You may be right in your observation. ....
