A magnificent page! and source of the Eisenhower anecdote
It is allmost unbelievable isn't it? But the source is reliable. Prince Bernhard of the Netherlands in a serious book. The prince was told about the rhinestones in the Order of Victory by Eisenhower himself.

Missing Afghan medal?
Any reason why the "From the Grateful Afghan People" medal ru:Медаль_«Воину-интернационалисту_от_благодарного_афганского_народа» from the 1979-1989 Afghanistan campaign is missing? I know it was technically issued by the Democratic Republic of Afghanistan, but it was issued to Soviet forces and authorized for their wear. Hzoi (talk) 22:49, 10 November 2015 (UTC)
