medals are baubles they give you for events you are ordered into. thinking back, i don't think i did anything extroaordinary at all. being injured is something that can happen taking a bath, or crossing the street, and adrenaline compensates for fear and stupidity, making ordinary people capable of doing extraoridinary things.
which is not to say that other people don't deserve them, or that others are not worthy. it bothers me when folks who were not at an event say, "it never happened".
