Default Award for Drone Pilots

The Air Force must have set the requirements for this one. This award is higher in precedence then the Bronze Star with "V" device.

Doesn't seem fair that someone who sits in an easy chair and pushes a few buttons

gets awarded better than someone who puts themselves in harms way !!
