Please by all means continue to post any additional public gazetting of any similar awards. My brain--though NOT my computer--can handle the language issues so I have no way to gather such data without reading it here. :beer:

We can all objectively judge, absent public statements of very strong personal feelings, the straightforward merits--or not--of such awards based on what we have seen of similar citations going back to the Great Patriotic War.

I think it is probably a fair general observation that (1) contemporary standards for gallantry awards have declined compared to what they were, say, in WWII and (2) the more political a war, the more desire to make a media "splash", the lower the standards.

Hello,

It seems that Lt-Colonel Timerman Konstantin Anatolevich is on the fast track up the chain(Lt Col at 31).

thanks,

barry

That's the thought that hit me too...The "average" for the US in promotion to O-5 (Lt Colonel/Commander) is 38...even 31 would be young for a O-4 (Major/Lt Commander).

Wow!

Dave
