    I'm not the one assuming he knows what happened. That would be you.

    Because my assumption is vastly more reasonable.

    Medal **** up is pretty much SOP in the military. The good news is they err on the side of caution. Benefits come with a PH, however.

And its the Army's responsibility to make sure it doesn't happen again whether its a revision of policy, I can't imagine this is encouraged by any kind of policy, or a counseling of the employee, perhaps their supervisor too. But I agree Army bureaucracy is a rediculous rat maze.

    Admitting this would require him to criticize the military.

    Again--and you know this as well as I do--if the CSM had orders, that authroized him to wear an award and he took those orders to his unit, they would have issued him the decoration, free of charge.
