well, the problem is twitchy, only one person can confirm that story, so we have to give him the benifit of the doubt. A lot of times they pinned medals on people just and parade them around to sell more war bonds

Tho I have to wonder why Putin is giving an award to Bush Sr. when Russia had hardly anything to do with the Pacific japanese war. Shouldn't USA be giving him a medal?
