Location: Washington, DC

U.S. Senator Joe Manchin (D-W.Va.) issued the following statement applauding Secretary Hagel's decision to review the proposed precedence of the new Distinguished Warfare Medal over combat medals, including the Purple Heart and Bronze Star.

"Secretary Hagel's decision to reevaluate the Distinguished Warfare Medal's precedence above the Purple Heart and Bronze Star is a welcomed one, especially to our veterans who raised their objections to the Defense Department's medal ranking," Senator Manchin said. "Although I recognize that the standard practices of war are changing, our brave warriors who face life and death situations deserve the most distinguished medals the United States military awards. I will be following the review process carefully and look forward to a full report."
