During my recent medal liquidation sale, I sold my United Daughters of the Confederacy Vietnam Conflict Cross of Military Service.
That is one of the few that I regret sell. Most of you are aware that I have a soft spot for these UDC CMS medals.
So, another showed up on Ebay recently, and I got it (see pictures).
The box has an "interesting" phrase on the side of it. Perhaps someone can help me figure out who this CMS was awarded to.
The phrase says "VIETNAM #1240 Adm. Bass". Really, Admiral Bass? Any ideas who that might be? Was there an Admiral Bass that served during Vietnam, or is this a nickname that was used by an enlisted man after his service tour was over.
