Honorable Christopher J. Dodd
United States Senator

Dear Senator Dodd:

              This is in response to your letter of July 13, 2000, on behalf of your constituent, Ms. Jean Risley, concerning her desire to have the Distinguished Service Cross awarded to her late brother, (then) Specialist Robert A. Tillquist, upgraded to the Medal of Honor (Posthumously) for his actions during the Vietnam conflict.

             We are processing this recommendation on behalf of the Secretary of the Army under the provisions of Title 10, United States Code, Section 1130.  We will forward the recommendation to the next convening Army Decorations Board for their consideration.

            We will inform you of the final decision as soon as it is determined.  Thank you for your interest in the Army’s Awards Program.  We appreciate your support of our veterans and the men and women serving in our Army today.

 

                                                                                 Sincerely,

                                                                                

                                                                                 Laurel D. Cunnane   
                                                                                 Lieutenant Colonel, U.S. Army Chief,
