The Department of Defense announced that it will conduct a comprehensive review of its military decorations and awards programs, incorporating lessons learned over 13 years of combat.

The goal is to ensure the awards program recognizes all levels of combat valor and service members' sacrifices. Additionally, the review will determine how best to recognize service members who affect combat operations through use of cyber technology and remote devices.

The review will begin in June 2014 and is expected to last approximately 12 months.
