At this point he was a Captain.....Harvey E. Overesch. I believe he retired as a rear Admiral. He served in WW1, WW2, was Comandant of Midshipmen at Annapolis in 42-43, he also played football at Annapolis for the Navy in 1915(I think thats the date)....

Seeing as there are some LoM's to Soviets, thought I'd add a General Order I found at the archives to Soviet officers. Wonder if they even bothered trying to inscribe their names on the medals.

Enjoy!

A very rare TRIPLE Legion of Merit group to a USN recipient. Note that the LoM is a WWII Army type with longer ribbon, heavier enamel and gilt wrap brooch. Details on the awards are shown below.

Yep, thanks...caught that after I posted it. If I could find a Chief case I'd have somewhere proper to put them....

Hello

At Google-pictures you can find interesting pictures about LoM.

 

Take a look at the certificate LoM "(Degree of Commander)" but presented Officer

http://www.yokota.af.mil/shared/media/photodb/photos/2012/12/121130-F-PM645-079.jpg

 

Third LoM Officer Degree is presented. Two Officer devices worn on Medal

http://www.yokota.af.mil/shared/media/photodb/photos/2012/12/121130-F-PM645-079.jpg

 

I can't upload the pictures, hope someone else can do it.

 

HAVE A NICE DAY

Michael
