10. Pretty standard fare, actually.
It's seen by promotion boards as a career enhancing award so many career officers are "earning" them in order to further their career. Nothing new, really. I worked for a Navy Captain, serving as the senior aid to a four-star Admiral, in Naples who was awarded the Bronze Star for sitting behind his desk during the NATO bombing of Serbia. He was never in combat or jeopardy of any sort, unless you call paper cuts a combat wound.
