Sort of an odd case, as Gary Rose is very well known in SF circles, and his heroism on that operation is well-known and the stuff of legend for SF medics. Usually belated MOH cases involve awards that were lost in the paperwork shuffle, not upgrades 50 years later requiring congressional action.

Regardless, he deserves it.

Remember reading a series of articles on that operation in SOF as a teenager, the angle was to give true story instead of some BS controversy on gas use by another vet IIRC

I had never heard his story before looking it up today. Don't even have words. Humbled and proud that men like that exist.
