ito ay isang tanong lamang: bat kya karamihan ng mga mov winers ay mga officers, ito ba ay statistically possible?

sa britain, karamihan ng mga victoria cross winners ay enlisted, tulad din sa amerika, karamihan ng nakatanggap ng medal of honor ay enlisted...

Without intending to split hairs, count and make a conclusion if the Medal of Valor was earned more by officers than enlisted men.

IMHO, courage and valor knows no dividing line between officer and soldier. It favors the raw acts of courage and gallantry, at the risk of one's life, way above and beyond the call of duty. Perhaps fate and destiny intervene with the man being at the right place at the right time. Such acts of heroism would indomitably be found on men, officer or soldier, who lead at the point of the spear, be they officer or soldier, or individual acts of courage at grave risk of one's own life.

By the way, much more USAF officers earned the Medal of Honor than enlisted men. Only because combat pilots are predominantly officers.

I would not cast doubt on the valor of heroes by insinuating that my country favors honoring it's officers over it's soldiers.
