My congratulations to all those honoured in the recent list, I am sure they all are highly deserving. Am I alone to notice that none of our brethren are included? Whilst I appreciate most are generated from courage shown in the face of danger, as we are in a COIN operation surely those who prevent insurgent activity from occurring should be recognised? I am aware of the excellent and ground breaking work that was conducted on H 11 by members of the int community (not just green hats) and I thought one or two names might appear. I am sure some will see this as a whine, but I am attempting to raise an interesting point.
