You seem to be neglecting the mentions of Heroism and Valor.

get air medals or even Aerial Achievement Medals for showing up to work 20 days

"(2) The Air Medal may be awarded for sustained meritorious achievement (distinction)

(3) may be awarded for combat or non-combat action in recognition of single acts of valor, heroism, or merit

required achievement to warrant award of the AM is less than that required for the DFC, but must be accomplished with distinction above and beyond that expected of professional airmen.

involving operations that are not routine.
4. Not awarded for sustained operational activities and flights."

RPA crews don't get air medals yet, even though they achieve similar effects as manned aircraft.

The crews that did overwatch on the bin Laden raid, took out AQ and daesh leadership, provided overwatch for hostage rescues, SCAR-C, CAS during TICs, or CSAR likely didn't get jack.

So you are advocating for a medal for people who post on social media and isis finds out who they are and puts their name on a list?


Sent from my iPhone using Baseops Network Forums

Or OPM gets hacked and details sold.

They wouldn't get medals for being put in danger, they get short notice PCS.

(people shouldn't get medals for being put in danger)
