    Thought I was pretty up on military medals and awards, but this one completely slipped through the cracks-- and I didn't realize I was awarded one until I got it in the mail today. Finally, some recognition for the million mosquito bites in the summer and the cold feet on guard duty in the winter (and an extra 90 day extension of tour thanks to President Kennedy which screwed me out of a tour in Germany).

    No need for the award Uncle, I would have done it anyway, but I appreciate it.
