I have another observation that I'd like to throw in the mix... that is that his DD-214 does show the Bronze and Silver stars as authorized.
Assuming that the DD-214 was issued contemporaneous with discharge... that makes it even more unusual that Lehman would be signing the citations. There's no date to show when the 214 was typed up, and I can't make out the form revision number at the bottom.
There is a DD-215, though, which is used for corrections and revisions to the 214. It changes a couple of his other service ribbons and adds a couple of awards from the Republic of Vietnam. There's no date on the 215 either, but it is typed on a form that has a 2000 rev code.
I'm not sure what this means, but it sure doesn't make a lot of sense. If he had the stars on separation... why did it take so long for the citation to come through?

Look at the post right above your #109. That may answer some of your questions.
Even if this all turns out to be legit, it still is wierd.
