Answer 23

Among Humans, mecha pilots have the highest regard with the general populace. This is principally because when mecha were first introduced about 250 years ago, where great pains were made to emphasize the combat effectiveness of mecha (the supposed weakness of the legs was the first to be quashed). Also, most mecha are very photogenic, and thus most combat footage tends to revolve around them.

Some fighter aces receive some recognition for their efforts, but it tends to fall in to the background compared to the fan clubs for mecha aces. Notability for space marines is generally at the company level, but some truly exceptional individuals are recognized on occasion.

Of course, among all this talk the poor bloody infantry are forgotten again...
