Quote from: lordmonar on April 02, 2010, 11:20:40 PMThere you go comparing CAP with the real military.If you read the regs closely you will find that we already use the Bronze V on our Disaster Service ribbon for assistance during a presidential declared disaster.So....out goes that argument.There is nothing really wrong with the way we do things now.
Quote from: flyboy1 on April 03, 2010, 12:22:47 AMThat said, can we drop the "V" device. We're supposed to be non-combat now. You know, I have a Commendation Medal for non-combat valor at a plane crash. The citation says it all. I don't need a "V" on the ribbon to show what I did. Why do we need another device on our ribbons when it would only cause confusion?
Quote from: heliodoc on April 02, 2010, 04:37:49 AM^^^Yes sir ...the good old daze of CAPBefore CAP had a CAP Risk Management, ORM and Safety program....Nowadays one may have to stand by the sidelines and not pull anyone out of a wreck or any other service just to please the corporationThe real action will be those who do the right thing, render the service, and move out smartlyThe still will be gutsy stuff in CAP, just clear the area and don't answer anyone's questions
Quote from: NewbieOnTheLoose on April 02, 2010, 11:24:14 PMYou know, IF CAP ever decided to create a "Gold Medal of Valor" at some future date, I would propose that we just have the AF award the Air Force Soldier's Medal to the member. If one of our members performed an act of extraordinary valor to the point of it being "gallant" above and beyond the call of duty for a SMOV, this would be entirely appropriate in my book.

There is no such animal. But there is an Airman's Medal...
Quote from: Flying Pig on April 23, 2010, 04:04:02 PMIf you want the Airmans Medal or Navy Marine Corps Medal, then you had better be serving in one of those branches. Otherwise, leave their stuff alone. If your not in the Air Force, why would you want the Airmans Medal? I personally would rather have the highest decoration for the organization that I am actually a member of. And please don't tell me your an Air Force member on an AFAM I think we have plenty of medals to recognize members and their actions. We in CAP know that the Silver MoV is our top medal. Lets leave it alone. I don't see CAP awarding non-CAP members medals.

Quote from: RiverAux on April 23, 2010, 08:15:32 PMThere are other threads that discuss that. Don't want to derail this one too badly.
Quote from: CCAlex on May 15, 2010, 05:40:12 PMThe reason I do not know, but having decorations on the award shows that you went further then others. Isn't it true that 5 honorable actions get you the decoration?
