Is there a list of medal winners by medal category such as Silver Star winners Bronze Star winners etc?

For US Medals at the very top of the "Pyramid of Honor" (The highest US medals awarded) lists do exist. The Medal of Honor, the highest medal awarded, has numerous lists that can be checked, as do the next highest, the Distinguished Service Cross.

There are monthly payments made for life for the medal, so any number of sources would also provide a verification list. Also, a DD-214 (Discharge Certificate) would list all medals and awards received by a service member, but would NOT tell you what the medal was awarded for; this would be found on the accompanying certificate with the medal.

What is the mos for an airborn ranger in the army?

There isn't an MOS for Airborne Ranger - it would be a Special Qualification Identifier which comes after their MOS. For example, Infantry is the "11" Career Management Field. A Private coming fresh out of One Station Unit Training would be awarded the MOS 11B1O, with "11B" being the MOS, "1" being the skill level - in this case, 1 to indicate ranks Private through Specialist, and the "O" is the Special Qualification Identifier - in this case, "O" means he has no special qualifications. Now, let's he attends and completes jump school afterwards. At that point, he would become 11B1P, with the "P" indicating he's jump qualified. So a couple years pass, he gets promoted to E4, and attends Ranger school, and completes it. At that point, he'd be awarded a "V" Special Qualification Identifier for "Ranger Parachutist" (i.e., Airborne Ranger), so his MOS would read 11B1V.

The essence of government is not to obey, but to enforce obedience. And therefore it always strives for that and will never willingly abandon its power.

What time does evening start?

The evening, meaning the end of the day, doesn't have a fixed time. It is defined as that period between late afternoon and night; for some that means the period of dusk, or twilight, from sundown to darkness or near-darkness.

When many people speak of the evening they think of around six pm, because that's the time the majority of people have finished their day's work.

In another sense we might say, we're spending the evening with friends, or, we ate out yesterday evening, usually referring to night rather than evening.

In English the noun, even, dates back to the Old English word, aefnung. By the 1450s, even had been replaced by evening. Today we still see uses of the term evenin words such as evensong, and eventide.

5 or 6. but really its 6

The Evening starts at 6:00pm according to some.

Depending on your perspective, evening can also start when it gets dark.

Why is the Marines so much better then the Army?

Neither is "better," in general anyway. Saying one or the other is better is like saying boats are better than cars. Better at what? The USMC is an invading force, "go secure this location" Marines go, it gets secured and then the Army comes in and provides permanent security, in general anyway.

As far as one being considered "better" than the other it usually has to do with the USMC's record of success in many historic battles that had impossible odds against the Marines, and every Marine being a rifleman. Their infantries (Army/Marine Corps) are more or less similar in capability, but the non-combat mos's are where the difference is. Army non combat soldiers (cooks, mechanics, admin, etc) are minimally trained in combat, at least compared to their Marine Corps counterparts. Any Army infantryman that says he'd rather have an Army mechanic at his side than a USMC mechanic after getting ambushed on a convoy is straight up being dishonest for the sake of pride. Every "non-combat" Marine not only has longer and more in-depth initial combat training(bootcamp/MCT, around 4 months before ever going to MOS school) than Army counterparts but that training continues throughout their USMC careers.

Lastly its also about the kind of person that joins the USMC. The Army has its badasses, its elite, and its salty battlehardened grunts just like the Marine Corps. Again the difference is in the non-grunts, a great deal of soldiers are drawn to the Army with bonuses, paying off existing student loans etc. The USMC recruits with its reputation, or at the very least its perception of being "the best" whether or not they are the best is irrelevant. Just compare USMC and Army recruiting commercials for confirmation. The USMC doesn't give bonuses, pay off student loans etc, there are no gifts for signing the dotted line. Recruiting people that want to be the best and want the hardest training (again whether or not they are the best or the training is the hardest is irrelevant, its about what is perceived) results in a group of individuals with a different kind of character than those that joined the military for cookies. It doesn't mean everyone that joined a different service doesn't have that character, or joined a different service for the tangible sign-up rewards, but there are many that did, and none for the USMC. Its not possible to answer "why one is better than the other" or even IF one is better, as with most things it's perception and I could only help to show you why the Marines are perceived as better and leave you to your own devices.

Are most army tanks indestructible?

no

I'm sure the soldier riding in the tanks WISH they were indestructible. No tank is completely invulnerable to armor piercing rounds, artillery, mortars, bombs, missiles, mines, and other anti-tank weapons, although some are more resistant than others.

The ongoing competition between armor and armor-piercing weapons has been going on ever since the invention of armor. The first anti-tank weapons were developed during WW I - which is when tanks were first deployed in battle.

Small cannons and large-caliber rifles were used against the early WW I tanks deployed by the British. Although a lot of thes supposed anti-tank weapons were nearly useless, they gradually got better as better armor-piercing rounds were developed. Grenades were also used. Since tanks can get stuck and be unable to move, they can also be quite vulnerable to artillery and mortars; once they get stuck they become a fixed target and are much easier to drop a shell on with some accuracy. In the area of anti-tank warfare, there are three kinds of "kills": "mobility kill", firepower kill" and "catastrophic kill". A mobility kill (M-kill) is when a tank is rendered immobile; if it can't move, it can't go where it is needed and isn't nearly as useful. Its weapons may still work, but it is more like fixed artillery rather than mobile firepower. A firepower kill (F-kill) means some loss of the vehicle's ability to fire its weapons. M-kills and F-kills may be complete or partial. A partial M-kill means the tank can't move as well, a partial F-kill means some of the tank's weapons can't fire or they can't fire as fast or as accurately. A catastrophic kill (K-kill) removes the tank's ability to fight completely. If the tank can't move or fire its weapons or if the crew is disabled and unable to operate the tank and its weapons, it is a K-kill. Most of the newer tanks are more resistant to M-kills, F-kills, and K-kills, but they are not indestructible. The more heavily armored tanks tend to be more resistant than the lighter armored tanks, but that is not an absolute rule.

How many oak leaf clusters denotes 5 awards?

500 and 55 thousand

To correct the above post, 4 bronze oak leaf clusters indicates 5 total awards of a single medal (the initial award +1 OLC for each additional award). Starting with the 6th award, a silver oak leaf cluster is worn instead (silver OLC indicating 5 previous awards). The 7th will add another bronze OLC, and so forth. Caveat, this is for the Army. The Naval services use stars instead of OLCs to indicate previous awards.
