Congratulations for this high honor.

I guess the editors at the Voice didn't think any descriptions of their valorous acts were worthy of print. This is a unit based in Mountain View. Ten distinguished flying crosses are awarded and all that is fit to print is one paragraph? Pathetic.

Congratulations to these brave airmen and airwomen.

But I guess they are not as brave, nor face as many dangers, as the garbage sorters who are covered with 17 paragraphs of the typical Voice dribble.
