MISAWA AIR BASE, Japan — In an effort to recognize more Misawa airmen
for exceptional work and to create a more equitable rewards program,
Misawa’s Top Three Organization has devised a new, additional honor: a

The "awards" program referred to has nothing to do with decoration
(ribbons). These are like "Airman of hte Quarter" type deals.

That is not to say I don't agree with you wholeheartedly- yes, teh USAF has
a very warped and inequitable decorations system.

Non-pilots don't get awards for "doing hteir jobs" (no matter how well or
under what circumstances), while the ZSSG get awards specifically for "doing
their jobs."
