Here is proof that I was at CAX too long. It is a question and answer that happened during the exercise.

Here is a good one.  Do Navy and Marine Corps Medals as in for heroism at the risk of one's own life require a summary of action?  I think so, however I can't find where it says so in the awards manual.  Please advise.

No, you just think about it real hard and then we pick up on your brainwaves and relay it up the line. Then Division, who is equipped with the latest mind-reading technology, has a séance and the award is propagated up to MEF via the nether world (or subspace transmission if they get a busy signal)

Now MEF has a "psychic amplifier" that reaches clear to CMC. There might be a delay if the flux capacitor is down for repair or upgrade. They have a T74 Super Duper Space Modulator as a back up.

When the Commandant gets that signal, he uses his omnipotent powers to create a mental supernova that is picked up by all the subordinate units. When we get that, we flow the award and send it back to you via carrier pigeon.

Yes. There is a part in the Division awards manual that is labeled "Guide for preparing awards for life saving/Attempting life saving awards." This is misleading because what it is for is for the NMCM, but I digress.

It gives what should be in the write up, which should be very detailed. They downgrade these at the drop of a hat so the more detail, the better.
