I collect military and civilian medals from the Habsburg era and was wondering the other day about how awards would fit into CoC. Investigators could very well be decorated with domestic or even foreign awards in secret for foiling the machinations of the Mythos: various civilian decorations or chivalric orders. Not to mention if the games take place immediately after of even during a conflict and the investigators were or are soldiers of an army.
Let's say we have a Great War veteran Marine NCO with a Navy Cross, a WW1 Victory Medal with various battle clasps and a French Croix de Guerre. He could've been wounded too, but since the Purple Heart was only established in '32, he would only have a Wound Chevron. Said marine would surely get a boost to his Credit Rating if he would were them. But how much? I don't want to hand out +50% bonuses.
