The French pinned two medals on Josephine Baker for her heroic role in the French resistance during World War II. Baker spied for the Free French Forces and entertained the French troops in war zones. When this is all over we really should pin one on Randy Rainbow for his role in the resistance. He's not taking the personal risks Baker did—he's not in danger of being arrested and shot (not yet)—but no one has done more to entertain the troops in today's resistance.
