New medal for drone pilots angers some veterans
Originally aired: Friday, February 22, 2013
The Pentagon just announced creation of the first new combat-related medal in over 60 years. The Distinguished Warfare Medal is for drone pilots and cyber warfare experts who impact a combat operation but do not necessarily put themselves at risk. It will rank between a Bronze star and a Silver star in precedence. But a lot of veterans are unhappy about it. Libby Denkmann reports.
