Chitwood, Carl

 (07-01-02)  Gentlemen, While looking into the Seawolf site I noticed this:

"On 3 January 1997, the Bureau of Naval Personnel authorized, retroactively, the awarding of the Combat Aircrew Insignia to Combat Aircrewmen who served in HA (L)-3." 

Does anyone know if anyone has petitioned the Bureau of Naval Personnel or the Commander NSWC to authorize the retroactive awarding of the Combat Boat Crew/NSWC Insignia to those of us who served in MST-2? 

If not, is this something either you think would be a worthwhile pursuit? Carl

Here is a collection of photos from Carl from a SEAL insertion and Extraction.
