Where is the living honor?

Greyhawk got me thinking again about something that has been bothering me for awhile: why has the Medal of Honor become a posthumous award?

Especially in an age where any junior officer who does not get a DWI during his first tour gets a NAM, why now do we not have a single MOH given to a living Soldier, Marine, Sailor, or Airman?

Don't tell me no one has earned it - many have. Why the disconnect? I am baffled.

Some are wondering why there are not more, great question, I want to know why we can't find a reason to give it to someone who has lived. No living person since the Vietnam War.

The system is broken.
