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?

Many thanks for those who assisted in contacts and helping to find people to complete this mission. Below is the article from the NYT.

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

Thank you


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!
