Jay Blount Second Mississippian to Receive Defense Department Defense of Freedom Medal – Mississippi Mondays September 16, 2019

I read this story Jay Blount Second Mississippian to Receive Defense Department Defense of Freedom Medal (think Civilian Purple Heart) somewhere. I thought it was on WordPress Reader, but I am not seeing it on the blog  I thought posted it. I found a different blog post about the story – https://wordpress.com/read/blogs/88930641/posts/58835. I chose Jay Blount as this week’s Mississippi Mondays post.

You can learn more about the medal at www.cpol.army.mil/library/permiss/5487.html (link may not work so try Wayback Machine – https://web.archive.org/web/20070622212033/www.cpol.army.mil/library/permiss/5487.html), another Wayback Machine link to different article – https://web.archive.org/web/20070619102453/http://www.defenselink.mil/releases/release.aspx?releaseid=3068 or https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Secretary_of_Defense_Medal_for_the_Defense_of_Freedom.

This is different from the Presidential Medal of Freedom: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Presidential_Medal_of_Freedom.
