    it is good to hear of a lower enlisted getting the medal they deserve, i am in the army and i have been sniped at, ied'd , rocketed , mortared, shot at, and had rocks thrown at me and i have not even recieved my combat action badge... but all the officers are getting bronze stars with v devices for their "end of tour award" and did nothing more than sit on the damn fob all day the whole tour and they got their c.a.b.'s when a mortar attack happened on the other f&^%ing side of the fob. tell your bro i said good job.

    Yea it was just a private but apparently the rank of corporal (or lance corporal dont know) comes with the award (they dont give it to privates).
