It wouldn't be the first time MOHs were rescinded. They took Mary Walker's and she deserved it! I am glad hers was finally reinstated. Buffalo Bull had his rescinded as well.

While we are at it we should open an investigation on every award ever given and investigate those individuals to see if they committed a war crime or owned slaves or did anything that we find unacceptable by todays standards.

A bit passive aggressive but that is certainly an issue to be avoided.

Capt Gregory Prickett - I don’t disagree.
PVT Joshua Blotzer great question. Probably not. But I really don’t know enough about the incident to say yes or no. Heck, even at My Lai, there were a few soldiers that acted honorably and probably deserved a medal or two. Maybe there were a few at Wounded Knee that acted similarly.

For Stephen, those were war crimes at the time, and if acceptable, then why did Gen. Miles relieve Col. Forsyth and put him before a court of inquiry?

I am not a spiritual person, but when one walks over the site, one can feel a sense of terrible loss. The same at Sand Creek, Colorado. And Fort Robinson, NE.

I do not know if those medals should be rescinded or not. But I do know we as a nation must identify and discuss such events in our history.
