My Dad was in the Navy and I can't find anything in the projects for Navy. I don't know if he should have a sticker since he had an other than honorable discharge. But there isn't a sticker for navy. He was stationed on the USS Springfield. I would love to dress up his profile but I am really stuck. Not sure what or how to do it.

Do you know what years he served in, or when he was discharged? Did he serve during the Korean War? If he was born 1930, he could have joined around 1948 and if he served at least 4 years, he have been in when the Korean War started around 25 June 1950.

And there is a Veteran's Recognition Template that shows the Navy image - I just have to find it again...

OK - I think it's something like this one below - I need to check the image for a better one...

{{Veteran Recognition | badge-image=Military_Badges_and_Insignia-3.png | nationality=United States | branch=Navy | start-year=1948 | end-year=1952 }}
Use Military_Badges_and_Insignia-6.png for Navy

The template can be found here:

WOW Scott thank you. I could not see for looking. I felt like I went through just about everything war related on wiki tree.
