    First pic (L. to R.): Air Medal (AM), Distinguished Flying Cross (DFC), Army Commendation Medal (ARCOM).

    In picture the red medal is a Good Conduct Medal (GCM). It is only awarded to enlisted soldiers for each term of service (now every three years after initial enlistment).

    I wonder if anyone can find out the Distinguished Flying Cross writing about what he did? I was toll about flying over the mountins?

    I don't know of any DFC database. It is significant award but there were a lot awarded.

    There are a few sites with all MOH and DSC citations and SOME lower awards.

    I'll check.

He states he was a stock clerk and had one year of college. He lives at 40 Orvis Rd. Arlington, MA. His father is Chester S Adams and his mother is Caroline Adams. he has a sister Janet Adams. Staff Sergeant Francis Adams was assign to the China-Burma-India "The Hump" Theater with 156th Laison Squardon with was part of the 2nd Air Cammando group of the 10th Army Air Force. He flew numerious missions over the Hump from 1943 to early 1945. Francis was discharged in Oct 1945.
