#1 Different medals for different ranks. Just like the PCS awards (remember the little gold stars from elementary school?).

- for the civie types - PCS, permanent change of station, basically good attendance record given at the end of an assignment. Heaven forbid you try to give a troop an impact award no matter how critical he was in making something happen.

#2 When you go to the DFC’s Wikipedia page and review recipients and their actions the pilots and the enlisted men were probably awarded the correct medal.
