    Thanks Sarge, it might be worth asking him exactly how he earned it, usually when the man is gone the history behind the item is gone too. An interesting side note about my grandfather, in 1983 my parents were planning their wedding and the US was planning to invade Grenada, well my grandfather got a letter from the war dept. basically saying "Get your affairs in order, you might ship out." this naturally surprised everyone since he had retired from the army nearly 20 years earlier, but the US was worried about sending inexperienced soldiers to war with no combat experienced leaders. Can you imagine going to war again nearly 20 years after retiring, luckily he wasn't deployed but I wonder how many Vietnam vets were, I would imagine it would be a steep learning curve from Vietnam era war-fighting to modern day war-fighting.

    Bronze Stars were awarded for many reasons. They were awarded for meritorious service during a particular battle or operation, or performance far beyond the call of duty , like saving one of your buddies or squads. One of my buddies received one by pulling a pilot from a burning aircraft. I'm sure there are others but you get the idea.

    Here goes, earlier this week someone asked who all on here served in 'Nam or the sandbox, well my Grandfather served as a Gunny in 'Nam he doesn't talk too much about it but he's not afraid to talk about it, but the only commendation that he earned is a bronze star. Now I have never heard him say how he earned it, or any of the circumstances surrounding it, but my question is what were some of the reasons for men being awarded the bronze star, any examples are appreciated. Thanks.
