Description
WWII US Army DFC Distinguished Flying Cross Named to Master Sargent Bernard L. Rolfe ASN 15082902 who was born in Michigan and enlisted at Ft. Benjamin Harrison. Medal is housed in the original case of issue and is officially engraved. World War II During World War II, the medal's award criteria varied widely depending on the theater of operations, aerial combat that was engaged in, and the missions that were accomplished. In the Pacific, commissioned officers were often awarded the DFC, while enlisted men were given the Air Medal. In Europe, some crews received it for their overall performance through a tour of duty. The criteria used were however not consistent between commands or over time. Individual achievement could also result in the medal being awarded. For example, George McGovern received one for successfully completing a bombing mission after his aircraft lost an engine, and then landing it safely
