More than boys; why men are needed to serve the altar

What do you make of the medallions that servers are given as marks of distinction?  I've noticed this both at Institute parishes and at the SSPX -- I think that the latter has an altar servers' guild that awards service with red-corded medallions worn whilst serving.

I tend to worry about altar servers who receive awards and medals of distinction. I still remember what happened to Dr. Fields.
