No surprise that American hero Sgt. Rafael Peralta’s Navy Cross was not upgraded to a MOH. (Even though the SecNav recommended it.) Washington DC and politics carry precedence over anything honorable. I won’t mention voting blocks and future elections. No, I think I’ll go read Navy SEAL Cade Courtley’s new book, Seal Survival Guide: A Navy SEAL’s Secrets to Surviving Any Disaster.
Sgt. Rafael Peralta’s actions were reviewed by the SecNav and it has been recommended that he receive the Medal of Honor. This news should comfort the Peralta family, especially the Sergeant’s younger brother, Ricardo Peralta. The junior Peralta joined the Marine Corps shortly after his brother’s funeral. Semper Fi, Peraltas. . .
