    I wonder if they even get to wear the medals..

    Congrats to those members! From my understanding Chaske when they wear their DEUs they wear ribbons instead of medals, but I'm not 100% on that so don't quote me on it.

    .....Unike the American's, nice jab there.
    Not totally accurate, but it is the Canadian Press.

    A "secret" ceremony that has a press release? :confused:

    Am I missing something? Seems like it's be a lot more "secret" if you just didn't tell anyone about it...

    The press release was allowed because it wasn't a "Double Secret" ceremony.

    The inverted instruction structure: We're not going to tell you what we're not going to tell you, then we're not going to tell you, then we're not going to tell you what we didn't just tell you.

    As far as I know, they get to wear them but only for "in house" events and other wise it's like you stated; they wear ribbons.

    Like every other outfit in the army, we wear whatever the CSM's tell us to.
