I found this link while looking up more information on I Flew With Heroes. I knew that my dad had received the Silver Star. However, it was a very inspiring experience to find and read the narrative from his citation.
The Silver Star is one of the highest combat honors to be awarded by the American military. It is awarded for gallantry in action against an enemy of the United States.
I wish I had more opportunity to use the word ‘gallantry’ in my life.
