I heard on the news today that the RSL in NSW has issued a media release about firemen (volunteers and professional) being given 'badges' for bravery in lieu of 'medals.' It seems now that the RSL has become the watchdog governing who deserves medals and for what. Check out the membership requirements for the RSL on their web-page. No longer do you have to have served your Nation overseas. Six months (?)in the Reserves entitles you to full membership and in next to no time you can issue releases to the media expressing your own personal opinions and straight away it is accepted as being the opinion of the majority.
