Navy Cross/DSM
2 of 9
from  1918-1919, BM-0107, USS Bobolink (AM-20)  album
Bruce was recommended for the Medal of Honor but the paperwork was misplaced and Congress and the Secretary of the Navy failed to act on the request. He was also recommended for the Navy Cross which was elevated to the Distinguished Service Medal, which in 1919 out ranked the Navy Cross. In the early stages of World War Two these two medals would switch in order of precedence.
