How Much Metal Should Be In A Medal Of Honor?
"It would probably come as a shock to most Americans to learn that the Medal of Honor — the nation's highest military award — is made of brass and costs only $29.98."
And this is a top story from the Washington Times? I don't see why the price of the medal is such an issue. The point is the recognition and honor of getting it, not the market value of the gold it's made from. It's not like the honorees are going to go sell their medals (and even if they did, I think that the fact that it's a Medal of Honor would be much more important in setting the price than what it's made out of).
