So I know this is not really a "build" as much as it is just something fun I was thinking of doing...

I was playing around looking at the Tour of Duty, and thought that it would be awesome to have actual medals like are awarded to us in the military to put into some sort of "I love me" award wall. Do we have a listing of all the awards that are currently presentable, as well as the description of what each award is for? If so, I could look into what it would take to actually create physical versions of these medals and have them inserted into the red velvet coated Oak awards boxes that would be about the size of a shoebox.

Just as a size and concept comparison, take a look at this link...
http://www.medalsofamerica.com/Item--i-WB2WAFWING
instead of having the Air Force or other military branch insignia on the lid, it would instead be either an Imperial Cog or the 501st logo engraved into it.
Now picture that the top shelf was a red velvet covered piece with slots for each of the medals and coins presented for rank advancement, trooper of the month nominations and awards, and service dates for joining the 501st. The bottom could be for pictures of the garrison as a whole, the individual in costume, and the individual with helmet off.

Again, just a fun little idea I was playing with earlier...

I like it! I think it would be great to have a physical manifestation of Mark's graphic! I know that Christy Giles had also done some pins denoting years of service as well...

Love it!

Just FYI... A redesign of the TOD Medal Box is coming. Part of it is graphical and the other part technical to remove Flash and add HTML 5 support so it will work on iPhones/iPads.
