Well John was a staff officer. Also, he spent the vast majority of his 38 years in the Reserves and was on active duty only a very short period during the many years of Vietnam. I always thought you got a Purple Heart at the hospital you were treated at when your unit cut the orders. That is how my men got them.
Makes me kind of wish I had put in for one when I got burned during a sapper attack. But what I did was stupid and I deserved to have gotten burned.
was on active duty only a very short period during the many years of Vietnam.
AD prior to the Viet Nam War as well and unless you've seen his OQR you don't know how much AD time he has.
Any idea as to his assignments? Media doesn't report much more than his hype.
