....The systematic emasculation and evisceration of the U.S. military continues at a dizzying pace. New Panetta medal for computer geeks outranks valor awards. See link for details.

After a hard day of thumbing joysticks, they can "win" a medal that carries more prestige than one won by a combat infantryman who charges a machine gun nest and kills the enemy hand to hand.

Sounds about right that the wussies that are running this country came up with that one.

I must say this... I was awarded a Purple Heart and a Bronze Star with combat distinguishing device (combat V for valor) and could really care less anymore. I do agree that much of what they are doing is rediculous and twisted but I actually tried to not wear my medals as much as possible because I hated hearing the questions. I am over the question part now but at the time I couldn't stand it. IMO the person who is awarded that medal should be ashamed to call theirself a hero when he was never in any danger. The people who should be wearing medals and receiving recognition are the ones who have fallen. It amazes me how fast people forget those that died for their country. I say that the new proposed medal should be worn under the GWAT medal because flying a drone in is a cowards way out. Man up or shut up..... One of us is walking out of here.... A wariors cry. All of these things have gone out the window and we will never know how to handle a situation should war ever come to our door step. I would love to be able to train again and to teach other people what I know to defend them and our country but that will never happen. Our Gov is sick, twisted, and demented and we all know it. I will just go drink a beer and pour one out for the real heros.

I am full of profanity at the moment. There is already a system in place to recognize the merits of UAV pilots...its called the awards system, they just need someone to reccomend them for an award. What is happening is you have a Captain or Major that did not make that cut as a fighter pilot and they are upset that they did not get recognized. Blame it on their chain of command, not the system. Once again, we have the liberal mindset that everyone needs a participation award.

I am sick to my stomach. For 3 months I sat on an awards board in Bagram, recognizing the achievements of those who deserved it. Reccomending upgrades for those who placed themselves in harms way and reccomending downgrades for those who were just doing their job. If you have reasonable people making the reccomendations and approving the awards, its a fair system.

Insert any series of foul words you wish for the way I feel now.

You do have to be pretty brave to fly one of those unmanned drones. Just think a pilot of an unmanned drone could get a metal now for taking out Americans, how ironic is that?

I agree the government is sick, twisted and demented.

I was lucky enough to not get wounded when I got my ARCOM with "V". After alot of years with it sitting in my closet in a box, I got sick of everyone asking me where my degree and certificates were. I finally broke that out and hung it, no one asks any more.

This award is a worse than a slap in the face of people actually on the ground, it's more like a kick to the balls. Another way the current administration is trying to destroy the military.

I have all of my awards and letters and everything else hidden in a back bedroom with all of my reloading stuff. I see to many people today getting out of the military with some sense of entitlement because of things that they have done. Don't get me wrong, all of my buddys that died are entitled but all of us that got out and can live a somewhat normal life should be thankful enough for that. The sense of entitlement that a medal like this will give someone is rediculous. I had people who had seen my picture in the papers come up and buy me a beer when I was at a bar but I never fealt like I was entitled to this. I can see someone who is awarded this bogus medal using it to their advantage while infantrymen will see far worse day in and day out and never ask for anything and never be thought of again. It is sick man. By the way, thank you for your service and never back down.

You too, no need to thank me, you were out there too.

I feel the same way, my awards were not just me but a reflection of my team. I just got sick and tired of all the others in the office asking about everything. I put up that award along with a group picture of my section after we came out of the field. I have not been asked about my degree, certicifcates or anything else on the walls since, so I guess it served some sort of purpose. I know my wife wanted to frame a bunch and put them up in our old home, but I just kept putting her off till she forget about it.

I agree though the awards system is broken as it is anyways. We'd come back and the S-3 would get a silver star but never have left the FOB and some Spec who was out there humping his [censored] off for months would get a AAM or nothing at all. I grew pretty disgusted with it all in general by the end. This award just falls in line with that way of thinking.

I never expected a free beer, but I have never turned one down either.
