Murthas awards were most likely political. (Surprised?)

Murthas two awards would have been from Democratic Governor Milton Shapp who at the time (1976) had a short lived run for the U.S. Presidency and most likely needed the help of a Democrat US Representative...


Distinguished Service Medal, Pennsylvania's highest honor, 1977.

Meritorious Service Medal, Pennsylvania's second-highest honor, 1976.

About this same time Murtha and then Governor Shapp met with President Carter to help get economic aid for the declining Pittsburgh steel industry.(CBS Evening News for Thursday, Nov 10, 1977)

They were just political favors.
