As a retired USAF senior NCO, and as someone that has actually deployed
to a combat zone, I will say that this "medal" is an affront to ANY
combat vet... However, to play devil's advocate for a few minutes, I have a few suggestions for awards and decs that I would like to see. I am sure
the administration will take these ideas seriously... at least as seriously as we take their new "chairborne ranger" medal:
Power Point 5000 hour medal
: Awarded to any enlisted/officer that has to prep slides for staff meetings, member has to prove 5000 man/hours
behind a PC with Power Point in active use.
Didn't ask/didn't tell ribbon
: Self explanatory. One additional device for every year member was on active duty during the don't ask/tell
: Parting gift ribbon to any senior officer or NCO that has been forced to retire for speaking out against the
administration. A "McChrystal" device may be added for every public quote from a staffer that indicates Hilary may be more in tune to the situation
than the president.
The IHNO or "I have no opinion" medal
: Awarded to Pentagon staffers that do whatever they are told with no regards to right or wrong.
Clinton Recon Medal
: Awarded to drone pilots that successfully spot and document topless female sunbathers. Bill's idea of course...
Hilary Clinton Medal of Truth
: Awarded to drone pilots that successfully spot and document topless females with the former president.
I am, of course, open to suggestions for others
