Civilian Security Contractor Awarded Medal for Bravery

This is a great story for the private security industry as a whole, especially with all of the negative stories going around about certain companies and operators working in Iraq.

One wonders why there have not been more medals awarded as I am sure security contractors in Iraq and Afghanistan have helped to save lives on a daily basis. Would any HE operators care to shed some light or share examples of heroic acts that they have experienced first hand?
