    About time and well deserved!

    There is no such award called the Congressional Medal of Honor, just Medal of Honor.

    "the President presents the award "in the name of the Congress"." that is why most persons wrongly lable the decoration.

    "Too Tall" received his several years back. Snake Sh.. insured that Too Tall got his and as usual, his was overlooked for way, way too many years. Both were great slick pilots and without saying, a pair of u know whats that wouldn't fit in a wheelbarrow!
