Subject: Medals for Drone Pilots!!

Please represent me in voting down the medals for pilots for drones that Leon Panetta and the DOD are going to pass in a few week. This medal will be awarded to pilots of drones who are hundreds of miles out of harms way using a joy stick. The medal will be ranked higher than the Bronze Star. I earned a Bronze Star the hard way while fighting fact to fact with the VC and NVA in Vietnam in 1969 with the famous 9th Infantry Regiment.

If the DOD wants to recognize these pilots with a letter of recognition that is great. But where is the line going to be drawn? What about the artillery, the mortar group, the tanks.

Please do not let those of use who earned the Bronze Star be degraded with this new action.
