Saying he is "decorated" is somewhat POV. It assumes he was decorated with awards and any other soldier with an article was not. The focus should be on what actions make him more prominent than other soldiers. What was it that made him stand out from everyone else? Was he the last survivor of of a division/platoon etc?

Date of death[edit]

What day did he die? The news was apparently first reported in various news articles on March 2, saying he died "yesterday", which would be March 1. The date of his death should be reported in the article. Mattisse (talk) 17:32, 5 March 2011 (UTC)

Too bad if this article does not get published[edit]

  • Personally I think being awarded the Distinguished Service Cross is being "decorated". This nice little article should have been a "collaboration" and the minor problems fixed before it went "stale". Just my opinion. Mattisse (talk) 19:20, 5 March 2011 (UTC)
