Rambo's CV

Per dialogue in Rambo: First Blood Part II, during his Vietnam era service, Rambo was awarded two Silver Stars, four Bronze Stars (for Valor), four Purple Hearts, the Distinguished Service Cross, and the Medal of Honor. This is, apparently, only a partial listing of Rambo's honors as in a deleted scene from Rambo III, Rambo's "Class A" uniform can clearly be seen with the following 12 ribbons:

Medal of Honor
Distinguished Service Cross
Distinguished Flying Cross
Soldier's Medal
Bronze Star
Purple Heart
Air Medal
Vietnam Service Medal
Prisoner of War Medal
Army Service Ribbon
Vietnam Wound Medal
Vietnam Campaign Medal
Curiously, Rambo's Silver Stars were missing from his ribbon rack as well as the National Defense Medal and the Good Conduct Medal, for both of which he certainly would have been eligible.

Various special duty badges can also be seen on Rambo's "Class A" uniform, including:

Combat Infantryman Badge
Aircraft Crewman Badge
Senior Combat Parachutist Badge
Expert Weapons Qualification Badge
