Award for talking a fellow Service Member out of killing themselves?
Last September I talked one of my good friends who was in the Navy at the time out of killing himself. Someone in his COC (O-5) called me thanking me and would like to "Recognize me for my actions". I haven't heard anything since, and just curious if this is something I should let go?

You should let this go! Your act was a humanitarian act and in support of what sounds like a dear friend. To promote what you did you expose his pain. Your act stared as selfless, keep it that way.
I say leave it alone. It would be nice to get a LOA or something, but it would be bad in bad taste to go asking about an award.
