Mad Dog Shriver." When he was not out in the Vietnam jungles killing VC and North Vietnamese and back at the base\camp, he was a loner. One of many stories about him was one time at the base\camp club while Mad Dog wasn't around. His pet dog he had there strolled into the club and shit on the floor. Some soldier grabbed his dog and pushed his face into it and then tossed him outta the bar. Mad Dog got word of what happened and the next day he strolled into the club, pulled down his pants and took a shit right in the center of the club's floor. And then he sat down at a table, took out his knife and jabbed it into the center of the table and said.... "Anybody here wanna try to rub my face into it? Huh?" Yep, no one said a word nor did anything. Now that's what I call a bad ass dude.
I want to say that I find this to be totally reprehensible and insulting.
I'm sure I can find examples of the MOH's that POTUS Obama presented during is terms in office to those deserving such Praise;
As well as, an Insulting example of the POTUS Trump presenting the nation's highest Civilian award to a Bigoted, Racist, and Undeserving individual as Rush Limbaugh.

Catching up on some reading here, pay scales back in 71' and when I got out in 75', no wonder I worked a full time job off base in MN 73'-75'. Got out as an E4 over four, housing allowance wasn't that much, my wife and I lived off base, rent was $215.00 a month!
