    They don’t deserve a medal any more than any other computer operator in the armed forces.

    Instead of a medal, I think they should get some metal, as in 9MM metal. Right after they’re tried for treason…

    IN stead of giving them metals,they should give them a nobel peace prize,THEY hand them out to all war criminals,kissiger ,obama,adolf hitler,stalin, but you have to kill a lot of people to get one,or be planning to kill a lot of people,I did hear they were in cracker jack boxs now too……………….
