Interesting that RADM Deets' bio makes no service connection to the Army Commendation Medal.

At first, I thought it might be some Flag template thing not to include enlisted service. However, I did know of one RDML who enlisted (RDML Jones) and then found another (RADM Bonelli). Then, again, they enlisted in the Navy so maybe it's a Flag template thing after all not to mention the other services.

No big deal. Just interesting and totally irrelevant to anything of importance.

The Army Commendation Medal is likely from his service with the Army (as a Naval officer) during his time in Korea as XO of NSGA Pyong Taek.
