    someone can then do the research, come up with a list of the medals she SHOULD have. we can nick images of those awards off the net, manip the pic of sam to put said awards on her dress unis. then print out the picture along iwth a list of the awards and mail it to her so that she can hand it over to the costuming folks and say 'ok, they did hte research, you go shopping, this is what sam should be wearing'

    cheap for us, little time consuming, easy to mail but still a way to get the message across
    Terrific game to play and still be accomplishing something! Brilliant - now, don't we have to first identify the fruit salad that's already hanging on her uniform? Can someone play with that first? Anyone home all day and not working full time? This could be fun ... you'll have to enlarge the medals and then find them and their descriptions ... yes, we must know what Sam has already "accomplished" in the military for her medals and then, LOL, we can add some more well-deserved medals and ribbons!

    Whee - can you tell I just had a glass of wine after a really intense day at school?! I also tried to phone Coley long distance in her alternate universe but her cell phone was on "voicemail" - bummer!

    Back to topic, great idea, Sky! Who wants to volunteer for some web research - we can break the task up into two parts: those who will enlarge and identify the medals already won and those who will then research possible additions.

    Honestly, campers, if RL wasn't consuming my weekdays and evenings and weekends (commencement this weekend) ... I'd take this on myself. Come on Samandans, who will step up to the plate?!

    We're doing this for Sam and for AT! She can then take the suggested medals of honor to the AF advisor, release her from the closet, and set things in motion!!

    I love a good cause! Sam Power!!

    The least we can do for the future Colonel Samantha Carter, Commander of the Athena. That has such a lovely ring to it!

      Nice!

      But didn't Ooobs do that a month or so ago? Or was that something else? The pic of Sam with Jack in Zero Hour?

        Now this is a really good version of: "When ya got it baby, flaunt it!"

        And, Ooober, I haven't caught up with all the back pages ... if you have already researched Sam's medal descriptions, can you share again? Thanks!

        Paradox Realities, I'm thinking of you too because you are in the military right? Or have military knowledge? Can you give us a list of possible new medals/commendations and post descriptions here for us to maybe vote on as to which episodes and how Carter merited certain medals? Wouldn't that be fun? Heck, if TPTB aren't doing their homework, we can do it for them in Samanda!

        Okay, I'll slink into the kitchen and have din din. No more wine for the night.

          I've only been able to identify six out of nine.

          (Top Row)
          - Airman's Medal
          - Meritiorious Service Medal
          - Air Force Commendation Medal

          (Middle Row)
          - Don't know
          - Organizational Excellence Award
          - Don't know

          (Bottom Row)
          - Don't know
          - Small Arms Expert Marksmanship Ribbon
          - Air Force Training Ribbon

          It seems as though Sam doesn't wear her Air Medal ribbon.

            I don't always trust wikipedia --since anyone can post there you're never sure how reliable they are. Some are fairly good, others not. I'd be willing to check official AF sites for descriptions of awards.

                  Didn't someone here once say that officers could buy their own fruit-salad of the fake variety, too and that it looked the same so a lot did it? If that's the case, can they buy their own fake CMOHs too?

                  On another note. Couple people PMed me about the sketch in my sig now, which is just a prelim of the one I'm working on, a very basic version of what I hope it turns out to be.

                  I posted it this morning, then opted against it, then deleted it - on the one hand I do want to share what I have so far, on the other, I'm kinda worried it'll end up somewhere public and being "unfinished" that would make me really squicky. BUT this is Samanda and I tend to think no one would remove it without askin' me anyway, so I'm going to post it again.

                  The backstory is, I scrapped the last sketch I was working on because I?* hated it.?* ?* I started a new one last week that's more "current" - looks?* more like Sam did in season nine (VERY VERY ROUGH right now - just basic lines?* and features).?*

                  But now I'm at a point where I'm starting to whinge over it,?* too. Muse issues I guess.?* *sigh*?*I'll share some of what I have so far.?*?* Despite my waning muse I do intend to finish this one.?* A bunch of half-finished pieces aren't doing me no good?* either!?* Hopefully I can finish this one fairly soon.

                  ... it goes without saying PLEASE DO NOT TAKE THIS and post it in a different?* public place. Please, please please.?* Yikes ... I'd be mortified.

                    Cool. Then I propose we start a list of possible medals and what they're for and figure out which ones Sam should have gotten. I think she'll have a lot more than are shown on the show and without us stretching things just 'cause we like her.

                    Quoting myself here ; I'd think some of these below sound likely for Sam...
                    Back on the medals thing. Here is what real life astronaut Air Force Colonel Eileen Collins earned:
                    SPECIAL HONORS: Defense Superior Service Medal, Distinguished Flying Cross, Defense Meritorious Service Medal, Air Force Meritorious Service Medal with one oak leaf cluster, Air Force Commendation Medal with one oak leaf cluster, Armed Forces Expeditionary Medal for service in Grenada (Operation Urgent Fury, October 1983), French Legion of Honor, NASA Outstanding Leadership Medal, NASA Space Flight Medals.

                      I love the drawing. I'd never think of copying to another site, but then I wouldn't have a clue how, so your safe from me LOL

                        - "The Defense Superior Service Medal of the United States is a senior decoration of the Department of Defense. It is awarded to members of the United States military who perform "superior meritorious service in a position of significant responsibility"."


                        - "The Distinguished Flying Cross is a medal awarded to any officer or enlisted member of the United States armed forces who distinguishes himself or herself in combat in support of operations by "heroism or extraordinary achievement while participating in an aerial flight, subsequent to November 11, 1918." The decoration may also be given for an act performed prior to that date when the individual has been recommended for, but has not received the Medal of Honor, Distinguished Service Cross, Navy Cross, or Distinguished Service Medal."


                        - "The Defense Meritorious Service Medal is the third highest award bestowed upon members of the United States military by the United States Department of Defense. The medal is awarded in the name of the Secretary of Defense to members of the Armed Forces who, while serving in a joint activity, distinguish themselves by non-combat outstanding achievement or meritorious service, but not of a degree to warrant award of the Defense Superior Service Medal."


                        Sam already has a Meritorious Service Medal and a Commendation Medal.

                        (The details of the awards are from wikipedia, so they may not be 100% accurate. The ribbons themselves are crosschecked with the USAF's official website)

                          All I know is, this stuff is great! I love it. Do you - or would you be willing to - do the other characters, too? Because the comic book style is awesome.

                              I dunno, I haven't really. When it comes to personal sketches I've done, because I only do them for myself, I tend to only draw the stuff I'm passionate about or something that inspires me. I'll think about it.

                                LOL!
