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.

Dunno. Different times? Hughes, the CO of Panay only got the NC. Uncle John carried him to sick bay with both of Hughes legs thouroughly f----d up. pl



I Googled for you. Details about the Captain McGonagle's http://www.washington-report.org/backissues/0398/9803026.html>Congressional medal of honor.


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.
