I must have watched ANH at least 1,000 times since 1982 when I first saw it, and something just occured to me after seeing it for the upteenth time. During the ceremony, we see Luke, Han, and Chewbacca getting medals for their heroics. Why not Wedge? Sure he wasn't there at the last second, but he was in one of the few snubfighters that survived and drew fire away from Luke until the last minute. If this topic was done already, I apologize.
