Where are their medals?

For four years now, American troops have been in constant danger, constant combat. They have been through a hell we can only barely understand. Through it all, as in all wars, there have been moments of bravery, of valor, of heroism.
Why have they not been rewarded?
Why have I not heard, from any source - MSM, government, or blog - of any award for valor given out to a soldier in Iraq?
Has no one in the last four years produced even one act worthy of the Silver Star? The Medal of Honor?

There are several ways in which a country honors its troops. One of them is to reward their bravery. When is the government going to do so for the men and women in Iraq?
