Thank you again Brian... Would Venter have been ground crew or a flying individual?

I will check up and see if he is entitled to a US Presidential Unit Citation, about half of them were, but my roll is at home.

Hi Jack

Yes, pleased to advise you Cpl JH Venter was entitled to a US Distinguished Unit Citation, that will complete his entitlement. Nice!

Only 320 out of the 800 odd South African servicemen received a Citation.

Regards
Brian
