This is great! What I don't understand is why, aren't these acts of heroism recognized initially?
And I'm going to ask another question?
Why did I witness wonderful acts of bravery by other soldies and they got no recognition in Desert Storm?
Because there was limits upon how many different awards could be handed out. And everybody who was "anything"
in the military wanted to be decorated for a war, even if that person didn't even get placed in danger. And the higher ranking individuals got those
awards. It helped these clowns look so much better! Meanwhile, some common soldier did something especiall heroic, was slighted,
I am not some disgruntled indivual who didn't receive an award. All I did was my job. No medal required here. I just did what I had to do. But
otheres? Those that really earned great rewarsds never received the just rewards
