Yes, Sky - and when he cadged his Silver Star, he insisted on getting a Combat "V" for it. The moron apparently didn't know that Silver Stars are only awarded for combat actions and Combat "V's" are not added to them.
I read the account of his action for which he got the Silver Star. Bottom line, it looks to me like he chased a retreating VC behind a hooch and back-shot him. Can't prove it, just what it looks like to me.

Listen, O isles, unto me; and hearken, ye people, from far; The LORD hath called me from the womb; from the bowels of my mother hath he made mention of my name. (Isaiah 49:1 KJV)
