    hint: mitchell has good leadership skills (really!? where?!) is NOT a good reason.

      Here's a little factoid...there have been only SEVENTEEN Air Force recipients of the Congressional Medal of Honor.

      Well eighteen if you include Cambo.

      My new theory is that Cameron didn't actually get the Congressional Medal of Honor - surely the President or the Head of the Air Force would present that.

      Since he was so down in the dumps and wasn't making much headway in his recovery, Sam had a replica fashioned to give him a bit of a boost.

      She's so sweet.

        According to 'Entity' and 'Fragile Balance', Jack is sixteen years and two months older than Sam.

        Besides, Martouf was at least a hundred and Orlin a heck of a lot older than him.

          Yes, but those screen shots of age listings aren't really something I ever perceived them putting a lot of thought into. They're for background more than anything, which is why I think it's up to the audience to really fill that in themselves. Unless someone actually mentions age in dialogue as a canon bit of exposition. Often times those kinds of background items even end up contradictory if continuity doesn't catch something one time and then does another. Then what do ya do?

          Fact is "timelines" and "ages" are probably among the number one thing that TV series' tend to muck up. Because unless they're integral to the plot arc, they can easily be forgotten about. Even in dialogue. Sam told Jack in THREADS that she'd had four years to get to know Jacob since he took his Tok'ra symbiot and was thusly 'saved' from Cancer - well, by our count, it was six years ago that he'd done that, right? So now what?

              As long as Cameron never realizes that it's plastic, they're okay.

                He hasn't realized that his rank insigna is plastic yet, either, so I think it's all good.

                  you say that like you think it's not possible

                  do you think colonel cupcake will get off his sugar high long enough to realize it's plastic???

                  and anyway, there are - unfortunately - replicas out there.

                  oh, did you know that it's a felony i believe to impersonate a CMOH winner?

                      time on the show is relative

                      in arthur's mantle cam says it's been 6 months since they recovered the thingie, yet vala's physical condition suggests that it's been longer (not to mention lines of dialogue)

                      and we're really supposed to believe that from the end of evolution to death knell it was a month???

                      grace, chimera AND fallout all happened in that month??? heck, it woulda taken most of that for sam to recover from her evolution and grace injuries, not to mention having time to save langara AND meet and fall for Pete

                        Lovely. They can go easy on him at the court martial but they really can't have him leading SG-1 if he's running around impersonating a CMOH winner, now can they?

                        Such a pity... well, not really.

                          lolol

                          well, since he's fakely inpersonatng a CMOH winner i think it's ok. it's likely why we will never really see cam wearing his medal

                          another bit of trivia, did you know that CMOH winners are saluted???? BY EVERYONE. going by protocol, Landry should salute mitch.

                          but i doubt they did thier research when they pulled the name of a medal out of thier hats to hand to him

                            Well, that's OK. We'll never hear about Cameron's CMOH again, I'm sure. They don't want to seem contrived or anything.

                              But you see, Landry doesn't know about Sam's cunning ruse.

                              What is this "research" you speak of? I don't think the writers have heard the word.
