WTF is up with Del Rio's Chest on the Reclaimer CS

In the opening scene, Captain Del Rio is scene rocking the Army Service Ribbon, a National Defense Medal, and a Southwest Asia Campaign Medal (Gulf/Iraq War). All of these are current ARMY medals. This leads me to one of several theories:

  1. Del Rio is an immortal soldier possibly working with ONI (which explains why he such a -Yoink-…)
  2. The UNSC is WAAAAAYYYY lax on “Stolen Valor” in the future…
  3. Somebody in 343’s character design department is so damn lazy they can’t even come up with some colored futuristic military medals…
    Come on, dude.

If I talk on forums enough, I won’t have to type this out anymore. Yay…
