Grand Army of the Frontier / medals
« on: May 20, 2024, 10:39:52 PM »
I was trying to get onto the Grand Army of the Frontier website at grandarmyofthefrontier.org and I couldn't connect. It was on my phone, so that might be part of the problem, but I'm curious if anyone else is having trouble?

The reason I was looking was to identify which medals we could wear on a uniform, I am seeing a lot of marksmen badges and a few sharpshooter badges, and in a few cases both together. There are some from US volunteers and a lot from the Pennsylvania National Guard.

Ping and port scans show grandarmyofthefrontier.org is “up”
Whois shows it is “supposed to be” in arizona

traceroute show that it is refusing tcp connections.

So we can surmise that it is “comatose” … alive but not talking

GO to the GAF regulations page at the top of this forum.  Find and open the "Muster Guide" PDF.  Awards and what medals to be worn are found there.
