DW Bronze Star

Postby Darren » Thu 10 May, 2018 07:03:38

Another fascinating update, Charles. And what a find - the letter to DW inviting him for the Bronze Star award.

I notice that the letter is from John B Ackerman who went on to become the Vice Director of the NSA (National Security Agency) in the 1950s. This was at a time when the NSA was a very secret government agency, it was nicknamed No Such Agency.

Do we know where the DW's Bronze Star is?

Thanks Darren,
Always good to know people read and appreciate the updates.
I know you love the Museum as much as I do and I was really pleased to find that letter. Not that I didn’t believe DW had been awarded the Bronze Star but more that it proved it.
I too wonder where the Bronze Star is. It may be with his family or his widow’s family ... I shall now have to probe.
Just as a taster, the next Museum update will be - if things go according to plan - an item from the same period that I like even more. I wonder if you will agree ... I suspect so and please watch this space.
You were very much missed on the Field Trip - as were of course all our other friends who couldn’t make it.
Best as always !
