A Dutiful Riddle

Question

Five-walled open house

Shut my door and make it four.

I know exactly who you are,

Where you sleep, friends you keep.

A loyal soldier out on tour

I take my leaves overseas.

So pin the gold upon my breast,

Give me orders crossing borders.

Ouch! There's another one of those one-star ratings.

I'd sure appreciate some constructive advice from the rater on how to make them better.

Thanks.

Good you perhaps give me a hint. I'm not sure in which direction to go with this.

I meant could instead of good. Sorry, a little tired today.

Hey dogg. I'm not sure what clues I could give beyond those in the riddle. There's really enough there. It's a little too soon anyway. When you see the answer you'll likely do a head slap (if you haven't figured it out yourself by then). Keep trying.

Cheers

I know this isn't right but a bedframe. I was thinking know where you sleep and friends you keep. Friends come in your room. Don't know how it fits the rest though.

Is it a pair of pants? Don't know how the walls count. Close the door(zipper) you get one less. Knows where you sleep and who you hang out with. Gold zipper and button, I guess.

a passport for some reason.

it knows who you are, where you've been, it comes out when you go overseas, knows where you sleep.

but the five walls thing throws me off.

I agree but what does it have to do with the walls and closing the door? Man, this is a good riddle.

An envelope has five edges when it's open and four when it's closed. It has both the sender and recipient's address. It needs a stamp.
