TA comment and a complaint.
I was in the Army from 1966 -70. At that time, the Army Commendation Medal was awarded for exceptionally good job preformance. At my field station in northern Japen, our cooks received an Arcom and they deserved it. An inspection graded the mess hall as the 2nd best in the army. It was truly exceptional.
I agree, however, that this award should rank behind the bronze star with V.
