Medal Toss

My Army Infantry guy tells me that Kerry’s claim that “ribbons” and “medals” are “absolutely interchangeable” is not true when it comes to replacing them, which might explain why Kerry was careful to toss just his ribbons in that trash pile in 1971. Ribbons are easily replaced, medals aren’t. You don’t suppose Kerry was trying to have it both ways?
