And yes, the entire process is most certainly subjective to varying degrees. It is not a quick and easy process and I spend on average an hour or more on each award consideration.


Lou I suspected as much. It is just my wry sense of humour that comes through at times. I must admit I had no idea what went into the decision making process and I must extend many thanks for your involvement. I don't know where you find the time given your occupational commitments, DiD flying time and its reporting, working on those excellent maps you produce, skins and medals you develop and now this effort on awards.
I have to wonder at your efforts. Thanks you very much for all you do for us, it is appreciated very much Sir.
