Medals Update

Back in January, I wrote about Campaign Medals for the 'War on Terror', complaining that

not only is the administration trying to lump the Afghanistan and Iraq wars under a single global ‘war against terrorism’ rubric for the purpose of campaign medals — a break with tradition — but that it also wants the backroom armchair warriors in that ‘war’ to be able to get the same medal as people who got shot at.

Looks like half of this is getting fixed: there will be separate campaign medals for Iraq and Afghanistan. Don't bet on the other half, though.
