One thought on “Combat Decorations

  1. Rick Lottie, USNA '69

    Under Navy Cross recipients for the class of ’39, please note: William Frederick Harris was USMC, not USN. His navy cross was earned in Dec 1950, for heroism at the Battle of the Chosin Reservoir. He commanded 3rd Battalion, 7th Marines (3/7) at the time.
