Hi -- Been wondering as i read through this. Why did McGonagle get the medal of honor? It's not clear what he did to earn the award on the day of the Israeli attack.

Captain McGonagle was awarded the MOH for keeping his ship afloat by directing damage control efforts while suffering from serious injuries. The ship could have sunk not for the crew's skillful and heroic efforts.
