Picture of the day - an Obama supporter

From Weasel Zippers comes this photograph of Charlie W. Williams:

Pic of the day: The Most Decorated Soldier of All-Time Backing Obama.....

Call me crazy, but I don't think he earned all those medals.....
Charlie W. Williams of Raeford, N.C., a veteran of the Korean and Vietnam wars and supporter of Democratic candidate Sen. Barack Obama, lines up early to get into a rally at the Crown Coliseum in Fayetteville on Oct. 19. "He's going to get a lot of white votes," he said of his candidate (PHOTOGRAPH BY J.M. EDDINS JR./THE WASHINGTON TIMES)

Suspicions confirmed, see below the fold for a full list of what he's wearing....

Via Rantburg....

I get real I also looked for images of Army Medals and discovered that I also needed to find some Navy Medals, too. The highest award is two awards of the Bronze Star, one with a 'V' for valor. Since it's illegal to claim a medal for valor you're not awarded, I absolutely believe that, without further evidence to the contrary. The rest are (in order viewers' left to right and descending);

Purple Heart/Army Commendation Medal
Defense Meritorious Service Medal/Army Meritorious Service Medal/Reserve Component Overseas Training/
Unknown/Army Acheivement/Good Conduct/Army of Occupation/Southwest Asia Service (Desert Storm)/Vietnam Service medal (3 stars)/National Defense
NATO Medal/Korea Service/Armed Forces Service Medal/Army Service Ribbon/Armed Forces Expeditionary Medal
Army Overseas Ribbon /Navy Meritorious Unit/Navy Combat Action
United Nations Service/RVN Campaign/Multinational Force and Observers/Outstanding Volunteer Medal

He has the Southwest Asia medal for Desert Storm,

the Armed Forces Service medal (which is for service after 1992).

He's also wearing a Navy Combat Action ribbon, which he only could've earned as a member of the Navy or Marines.

He also has an Overseas Service Ribbon which can only be awarded to people on active duty after 1981.

His National Defense Service Medal has an oakleaf cluster, subsequent awards of the NDSM are denoted by a bronze star device not an oakleaf.

The Obamites sure DO support their troops -- troops like Charley
