Update on February 15, 2013
The 6 staff members were awarded a presidential medal today but the 2nd highest medal, Presidential Civilian Medal. Politics. Maybe Congress will find it in their hearts to award the Congressional Gold Medal, the Highest Award and the same as the Presidential Freedom Medal. To award a 2nd place medal to people that exhibited the highest values of our American ideals is an insult to those that made the ultimate sacrifice. However, it is a concession in the right direction. Congress, how will you act?
