Egypt awards first Sinai Star since 1978

Recommended Posts

Last week, Egypt awarded the first Sinai Star -- its highest military gallantry medal -- since 1978. It's also the first Sinai Star for actions during the 1973 war awarded since 1974. (The 1978 awards were to commandos who participated in a hostage rescue in Cyprus.)

Just as interesting, the recipient was an Egyptian version of a US Navajo Code Talker.
