I Kaupans case, this is the result of a long and continuous effort. The Army has honored him by naming a Kasern after him at Vogelweh, Kaiserslautern, Germany. So it is just a matter of how things work. Some people get their full due, others do not. It does not serve your stated purpose to protest this award. This man did not fall on a handgrenade. He took many actions to save lives.
I wasn’t protesting the ward..I said that I felt he deserves it...I was rather attempting to step back from one particular case, and discuss the whole question of revising awards decades after the fact..
