Good luck.

YGBSM sir. This is a sorry state of affairs; maybe the Wiki entry would be something they'd understand. Jeebers.
:rolleyes:

PUC redux
 
I resubmitted an appeal. I sent them a copy of the actual General Order 25, In the FIRST sentence when listing units that are covered is 5th SFG, SOACCN. I also sent them additional orders that leave no doubt of assignment. I then asked them why did they not bother to look at the order with it spelled out for them. I know I should not have, but I am still Pissed. Will post final adjudication. Thanks all.

PUC update
 
Got letter from Review Board. Will not use initial case number, so it has new number which puts it back of the line to start over. So, it will take another year to make the decision.

Rose Medal of Honor MACV-SOG
 
I haven’t been on here in quite some time. Hope you gentlemen are well. Most of you have probably heard or seen about Mike Rose’s upgrade of this DSC to the Medal of Honor as he was originally nominated. We’re in last phase of this effort, just waiting for the 2017 National Defense Authorization Act with time-limit waiver to go through authorizing POTUS to present. Many thanks for those who assisted in contacts and helping to find people to complete this mission. Below is the article from the NYT.

James N Pruitt
 
[QUOTE=JYD73;436479]Gentlemen of the SOAs, 5th SFG(Abn), 1st SF, I am working on a case of a downgraded Medal of Honor nomination and I have noticed a couple of other very similar cases in doing research. These are cases that involve downgraded Medal of Honors to Distinguished Service Crosses.

I was in the same barrack's room as James N Pruitt during training group. He and I would visit a girls' college in South Carolina. Jim was a tall lanky ladies man. He had many girlfriends. I visited him in the hospital at Womack, but he was so badly injured that I could not cope with his injuries. I only visited him once. A Google shows that Jim earned the DSC and died in 2007. He was from OK.

Hey, Dave, I see you joined back in 2012 and only have one post showing. Your intro post may have been lost in the deleted intro thread.

Could you go ahead and post another intro in the intro thread?

Incredible respect for all who served in MACV-SOG and humbling to read this thread.
Best

Thank you
 
Gentlemen,

I wanted to thank you for sharing your knowledge with this NG Leg, and for assisting me in contacts with some of these warriors. This effort is concluded, but others continue. History has many wrongs, and there is one fewer now.

Ever Forward!
Neil
