There was a picture of him floating around in a poopy suit while still an 0-1, and it looked liked he was perched on a Trojan. No insignia on his name tag, niether.
Further more, I haven't read anything to indicate that he had the Combat Action Ribbon.
I've always thought it was funny how the media glorifies any sort of military marksmanship badge as if it is a Distinguished Rifleman's badge.
the DC Snipers, Dorner, Lee Harvey Oswald, McVeigh were all lauded as superb marksman, regardless of thier awards.
