Please submit my fathers name to the list. Robert Jackson. This is straight from his DD-214. — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talkcontribs)

The list of names you see is a category, the names are not individually added but are populated by the articles that have this category in them, see Wikipedia:Categorization FAQ for further explanations, I made a reply to the question you asked at the help desk here▪◦▪≡ЅiREX≡Talk 17:55, 6 September 2007 (UTC)

Please submit my Uncle Calvin Peterson to the list, he received the Cross twice and I have seen them. He was very angry to find his name not on the list. I don't have the information on it, but i can get it from him, contact me for it.( —Preceding unsigned comment added by Dabert234 (talkcontribs) 01:48, 21 August 2008 (UTC)

Hi... please add my grandfather to this list - Robert E. Davis. I have the letter if you need confirmation. — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 14:15, 31 August 2012 (UTC)

I hope actor Tim Holt will be added to this list, either under his stage name or his birth name of Charles John Holt III. Him being a recipient of this high award was missing from his page and I just added it, along with two references to the fact. Thank you. UPDATE: I learned of adding the catagory to his page, and it worked, but his entry is out of alphabetical order Neuroguy2 (talk) 23:52, 30 August 2016 (UTC)

Moved from the category page itself[edit]

Jim Mulvihill is missing from the list of recipients. Hopefully, now he will be included.

FYI Jim did not receive his DFC until many years after the war. His original Silver Star submission was lost and it wasn't until this was discovered during the Clinton Administration that the DFC award was made. Since then Jim has passed on. His widow and family currently reside in the Washington DC metro area. — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talkcontribs)

I've copied the text above from the category page. Following it in the same edit was a text, which was "Copyright Air Force Association. All rights reserved." --Daggerstab 11:35, 28 September 2007 (UTC)

Please add my father George Ambrose McCann to the list of Distinguished Flying Cross recipients. He died May 1, 2011 and served as a B-17 pilot during WW-II. He proudly displayed his medals on the wall in our dining room for many years and received a confirmation letter when he requested a replacement medal a few years ago. Here is a list of his medals: —Preceding unsigned comment added by McCannRT (talkcontribs) 13:18, 22 May 2011 (UTC)
