    Wow, this is disgraceful. Above the Bronze Star? I hope it is a prank or some sort of erroneous reporting.

    PS: On the other hand, maybe now our own war hero Chesty can get a medal for all his paper cuts.

    I don't know if I should laugh or throw up at the stupidity of his suggestion. Should send his dumb a$$ to the front lines to see what the real mean and women are facing. Stupid moron.

    I respected him until he showed his true colors on his way out. My good friend lost his eye and part of his face in Viet Nam and I'd pay to see someone sport a candy-ass medal like this in front of him.

    Everyone is "equal" in the eyes of a socialist. ;-) Probably the person who came up with the idea of not keeping score at kid's baseball games.

    From the same fine people that brought you the "Courageous Restraint" medal. Maybe Malia will get drafted, sent to the front lines and 'earn' one of these? It's impossible to 'lead' from behind. San Juan Teddy said it was like pushing a rope........

    The new military gives out gee dunk medals to level the playing field. Remember the army issued berets to every one, not just special forces, The navy issued surface warfare badges which look almost like submariner's dolphins. The people who are special know who they are, the other's know who they really are.

    Well we let our military go completely to hell in mid-late 70s and Reagan later fixed it, so hopefully we'll eventually recover from the recent Democrat gayification too.

    REMF!The only time a guy in the rear with the beer and gear flying a drone should be getting a medal is if he had dropped a drone on Bin Laden.If you haven't spent time in the barrel,YOU DON'T DESERVE IT!!

    There will never be another Republican President. This will never go backwards.

    The pendulum always swings back, Buzz. Besides, the word "Republican" today certainly doesn't mean what it did when Reagan got elected, and it's going to mean something even more different in 2016.

    I mentioned this travesty to another combat veteran today and he told me, "Don't be so gullible. Run nonsense like that thru Snopes before you drink the Kool-Aid."

    It's sad that our government is now doing things so misguided it is -- quite literally -- impossible for decent folks to believe.
