The military have all of these ribbon bars on their chest indicating that they, the company, or battalion were in a combat situation somewhere in some country, campaign, or war. This is sometimes called "fruit salad". We're still sending bodies home. Soldiers are still getting killed every day, it never ends. I had to make a statement so I painted my own version of fruit salad except I added the black fields to represent body bags. Fruit Salad is such a pretty name for something that represents death.
