Senate bill would reduce rank of drone medal

http://www.militarytimes.com/news/2013/03/military-bill-would-knock-down-rank-of-drone-medal-030713w/ Senate bill would reduce rank of drone medal By Rick Maze - Staff writer Posted : Thursday Mar 7, 2013 10:32:35 EST Congressional opposition continues to grow to a Pentagon decision to create a new medal for drone operators that ranks higher in precedence than the Bronze Star and Purple Heart.
