I was reading an earlier post:Fcuk Clint Eastwood. 1st Sgt Kasal USMC was awarded the navy cross for his outstanding actions.If he was in our Royal Marine's what medal would our country have awarded him. I for one think this would have brought him the VC,and can't understand why his country did not award him the MOH.Are his actions any less than our own VC winner Pte Beharry. Is it harder for yanks to win their top award,or is it that there are so many acts of valour taking place that it requires a Hollywood style action to gain one. Also are British troops hindered in winning our countries top award in Iraq/Afgan as Joe Public see's it as reward in an unjust war.
