USA, veterans' organizations
     Veterans have been getting together for mutual aid and comfort since people started making armies.  In addition to the service and self-help business there has always been a bit of a good-old-days/bad-old-days component, with a tendency to continue some of the trappings of service life, among which: badges and medals.
