Pentagon creates new medal for cyber, drone wars

Published: 02.13.13, 21:44 / Israel News

Defense Secretary Leon Panetta is expected to announce Wednesday that for the first time the Pentagon is creating a medal that can be awarded to troops who have a direct impact on combat operations but do it from afar.


The new blue, red and white-ribboned Distinguished Warfare Medal will be awarded to individuals for "extraordinary achievement" related to a military operation that occurred after Sept. 11, 2001 when terrorists attacked the US. (AP)
