Best Answer

There was one soldier in the Army who received the Navy cross during the Vietnam conflict. His name is COL (retired) Kenneth Ledford Jr. In Vietnam, he was a First Lieutenant, and he was a medevac, or "dust off" pilot. After retiring from The military, he became a teacher, and an instructor for the JROTC program. I was fortunate enough to have him as a JROTC instructor while I was a student at Pontiac Central High School. - SGT Christopher Ramos, US Army.
