A MOH recipient is still with us.

Bruce Crandall

Thanks Hondo for reminding me.  I honesty figured the MOH was enough but I was way wrong.

TAH has told the story.

    Great guy! Served as his escort here at Benning and he was awesome. Took me to breakfast and full of great stories!

    Was the same air crew with him the whole time? Were they awarded if so what medal or medals. In my squadron the crew chief stayed with his helo, we would change everybody but the c/c.Does the Army assign their C?C to a helo or a set of pilots?

    Happy birthday, Bruce.

    His wingman, “Too Tall” was awarded the Medal a couple years before him. The rest of his crew, I’m not sure what they got but not the Medal.

    Happy birthday Colonel!

    I thought you were talking about Kenny Stabler. He’s only 67 BTW.
