Rob Lyon finally gets his medal

Rob Lyon is a hero.

It’s official.

On Monday, he and his wife, Robin, went to the mailbox and found a small package from the U.S. Navy Personnel Command.

Pinned inside a commemorative box was the Navy Marine Corps Medal, the highest and least frequent non-combat award given to any member of the armed services.

There was no letter, no ceremony, no explanation. Just the medal and a simple, bureaucratic government form.
