She was an astronaut so it's not really surprising.
Maybe because she's Army?

good. nonsense happens and things get denied or disappear.
I never earned nothin' for being a weird extrajudicial not-actual-service-RNSS jackassery, but that was the brief and I'm ok with that. (sorries/not-sorries festivus airing of grievanvces)

she put in the work and did her part, she should have the recognition.

this lady sounds like she really deserves it. so, good.

I find it quite funny. I can imagine it doesn't hold up perfectly, but my brother and I watched this often with my dad. I've seen the entire series, and enjoyed it.

Thomas Haden Church's career was made by Wings as well. Lowell was great, the show was overall pretty funny asI recall, highly quotable.

Thusly this.

My wife gave me chicken wings 15 days ago that she cooked in some spicy Chinese sauce.  I'm not sure if I actually earned them, but they were real tasty and I appreciated her effort.

But not the same.

What's with subby trying to make it sound like she was delayed from getting proper recognition for 15 years?  She completed her mission last year and received the decoration this year.

I not sure about this, but she already has Army aviator wings since she flies Kiowas, and I think the device is worn over the wings you have when you have reached 60 miles, or 100km above the Earth's surface.
