A QUEST FOR RECOGNITIONA QUEST FOR RECOGNITION: Two features examine the Medal of Honor as it relates to Vietnam veterans. Art Sharp writes about the evacuation of FB Kate under the leadership of Bill Albracht, and the recent efforts to have Albracht (a member of Quad Cities Chapter 299) awarded the Medal of Honor. In December he received the Silver Star. Marc Leepson writes about the Vietnam veterans who have received the MOH and the difficult path in getting the medal awarded so belatedly.
