I was recommended for a Silver Star by the SEAL OinC of the OP in which I was awarded my second Bronze star.
The CO of SpecWarGruVietnam, CDR John O’Drain downgraded it to a Bronze Star. It did not go well with the OinC of that Op but “RANK has it’s privileges”.
The SEALs in that OP know and may remember the details of our actions. It’s told in the book SEAL Warrior by Tom Keith on page 187 (or there abouts).
