The Form DD214 number is appended with one of five codes to denote branch of service (A, AF, N, MC, or CG).

“Faire Ladies of the Realm,” 18 and over are invited to be daring- without baring it all, during our annual Cleavage Contest.Authentic 16th century women’s dress often featured bodices with square or rounded necklines, which were always cut across the top of the nipple line, never below this line. Women often wore corsets to smooth the lines of the torso, compressing it into a smooth cone shape. The waist was not overly compressed, and the breasts were flattened, resulting in a high, mounded bust line.
