It really is getting a bit pathetic. I wish we could go back where each UIC had a ceiling on each type of medal it could give - that way there was at least some type of quality cut. Now days, you have to be found in bed with a live boy or a dead girl to get denied an End of Tour medal.
If I see a Royal Navy Admiral with two rows I go "wow!" If I see a USAF Col. with 7 rows I go, "Standard issue."
This sense of entitlement is just, well, pathetic.
Air Force Col. Morris Davis said he was denied a medal for his two years of work building military commissions cases against terrorism suspects because he resigned and later spoke out about problems in the Pentagon's Office of Military Commissions.Pathetic - though for an Air Farce Colonel type - you are a little weak on the salad bar.
