Anyone that might have served with Donald E De Vaney between 1954 and 1984 I need your help if you can. I need to know what awards and decorations he received other than the Bronze Star, Air Medal, Combat Infantrymans Badge, National Defense Medal and Good Conduct Medal. Those are the only ones I have been able to verify. I asked his widow Tokiko to tell me if she knew or some of his friends could tell her. I haven't heard anything from her. With 30 years of active Army I am sure he received more than these. Also if you know of any Civilian Awards for his service as Provost Marshal at Tippler Army Medical Center.
Thank you,
