I don't expect Congress or the Department of Defense to initiate this award, and I wouldn't trust the Department of Veterans Affairs with anything. No, it's up to us, We Who Serve and Have Served to take the initiative.
I plan on raising a motion at the next meetings of my American Legion and VFW posts to initiate a recommendation to be sent to their respective district, state, and national organizations to campaign for this award. I see no reason why it would have to be left to the politicians who would only want to usurp the glory for themselves.
Would you do the same?
