Not sure about the rest of you out there, but I feel these guy's are misrepresenting both the meaning of each medal and how they received these medals. The news articles quotes a member of this demonstration with a comment about these being medals for heroism. Nothing could be further from the truth. These medals they tossed over the fence were only campaign medals that rank lower than the Nation Defense Service (fire-watch) medal. The NATO medal is earned while participating in a NATO lead operation. Again, even the NDSM takes precedence over it. NONE of those medals have ANYTHING associated with acts of heroism.
So far today, God, I've done alright
I haven't gossiped
I haven't lost my temper
I haven't been greedy, grumpy, nasty, selfish, or even over-indulgent.
I'm really glad about that.
But in the next few minutes, God,
I'm going to get out of bed,
AND from then on, I'm probably going to need a lot of your help.

The NATO Medal is below the Armed Forces Reserve Medal and is below the other service medals. These guys were just doing the idiotic but there is not law against being stupid or the jails would be full.
If it weren't for the United States Military,
There'd be NO United States of America!

die for you:
1. Jesus Christ
2. The American G. I.
One died for your soul, the other for your freedom.
