Kind of bull shite... Not that I disrespect the guys flying the drones, but being on the ground is a little more real.

That being said, from what I've heard through the grapevine, these drone guys kill A LOT more people than any other non special forces we have. They're also pretty high up on the suicide watch lists for the military.

All for them receiving a medal, but placing it above a Bronze Star is retarded.

How long before someone recommends a soldier for the medal with valor device? It takes incredible courage to sit in an air conditioned battle station for all those long hours waiting for the enemy to appear in your gunsight.

The notion, that without personal risk, Valor is present is simply disgusting.....

Given that this is Odumbf*ck's Social Experimentation Army, I was just surprised that Odumbf*ck didn't name an award after the person he considers to be the most interesting and greatest person to ever walk the planet -- HIMSELF -- for the Best Dressed in Camo Drag Queen.

Kind of like getting a video game award for reaching the next level. Sorry, but while I can appreciate a drone operator and the service provided on the battlefield, this is horse shite.

Is it just me, or does it seem like Obama is pretty fond of drones and those that use them to do his bidding?

re: Newest military medal
I think this plays into the politics of the military.

1) Drones, and the ilk, are becoming increasingly important

2) Part of the promotion mechanism is acquiring awards and ribbons (this is one of the complaints of women not being allowed in combat...limited ability to acquire these awards)

3) The military wants some of its best to become dedicated to these areas

4) The best want promotion options

5) Create a pathway that makes it desirable for career minded guys to WANT to go into these areas.

Above Bronze Star without valor device? We can talk.

Above Bronze Star with valor device? You have got to be kidding me.

Valor: strength of mind or spirit that enables a person to encounter danger with firmness : personal bravery

The fact that "valor" could be placed below this medal is an insult to anyone who has earned the BSM with valor.

Let's award a Purple Arm Sling that they can wear as a kerchief with their uniform after they recover...

The new medal will rank just below the Distinguished Flying Cross. It will have precedence over — and be worn on a uniform above — the Bronze Star with Valor device, a medal awarded to troops for specific heroic acts performed under fire in combat
