#1945 – bronze star

i can understand why she’s getting the purple heart and the prisoner of war medal – those make perfect sense. but being ambushed with 11 soldiers being killed and 5 taken prisoner? and it’s supposed to be “For Heroic or Meritorious Achievement of Service, not involving aerial flight, in connection with Operations Against an Opposing Armed Force.”?? i mean, audie murphy did some heroic fighting in battle and got the medal for reasons that made sense… so why does jessica lynch deserve a bronze star???
