There are some medals that come....and go. This will be one of them.

If you dig into the wording...it’s possible to win this for things beyond drone-pilots....like cyber-warfare. So you could have a dozen airman win the medal for fighting off Chinese hackers...sipping Mountain Dew and eating salted peanuts along the way. At that point, everyone will agree that the medal is worthless and tossed out.

They should at least have to stand up while winning!

Granted they aren’t the same but you can do more damage with a types computer command then with a 2000 lb bomb.

Irans nuclear program was delayed and their centrifuges damaged by a computer virus.

There needs to be a difference but it is part of the war effort.
