PAR35, A little clarification.. Max Cleland was awarded the Silver Star and Bronze Star for actions in the Khe Shah valley on/near April 4. The incident with the grenade occured on 8 April as he exited a helicopter. The grenade fell off of a troopers web gear and Cleland reached down to pick it up, thinking it was his. It blew up in his face resulting in the loss of 3 limbs. I don't believe he got anything for the grenade incident other than severly injured.
Thanks for the clarification. I didn't recall the sequence.
