The "Warfare" medal you get for not actually conducting...well...warfare

Posted By Blackfive • [February 20, 2013]

We've talked about it here with Deebow giving his impressions and McQ today with PowerPoint Ranger's take on the new medal that the SecDef will issue to the cyber warriors and the drone pilots (poor near-sighted bastards).  

Mothax over at the Burn Pit wrote a piece yesterday and took part in a Q&A with the DoD today about the new Distinguished Warfare Medal...

Check them both out.  Today's piece hits especially hard on the point that a medal for remote control or cyber combat is being placed higher than a medal for VALOR in combat.
