I was in VMO-2 at marble from 2-68 to 2-69 when L/cp Al Lefter ( sp) and Gunny Cover were in a gun fight where they later got the NC. Was also at CamPend when Gunny Cover and Al went and got their NC medals. I remember Gunny Cover not being happy about the NC cause he wanted the CMH because it was worth a $100.00 a month when he retired. Hope he is still around thanks Sgt Bible C/C -Submitted by: John Bible [firstname.lastname@example.org] 2006-02-28
The Medal of Honor is worth about $1100.00 a month now. However the Medal of Honor is not, nor was it ever known as the (CMOH or CMH) AKA the Congressional Medal of Honor. It is simply the Medal of Honor (MOH), the confusion crept in during the 1950s after the Congressional Medal of Honor Society was established and chartered by Congress . I even had someone tell me once that there was a Medal of Honor and also a Congressional Medal of Honor, the latter being the most senior. See the Congressional Medal of Honor Society web site for a clarification. There are three Medals of Honor; The Army Medal of Honor and of course the Air Force Medal of Honor which was first awarded in Vietnam. The Navy Cross is a very impressive medal, but more impressive is the man that wears one, such men do not happen along every day. I knolw I would certainly salute the man that wears one. -Submitted by: Doyle Sanders [email@example.com] 2006-03-18
