He was also the first member of the U.S. Navy to receive the award since the Vietnam War. His other posthumous awards include the Silver Star Medal (which was later upgraded to the Medal of Honor) and the Purple Heart.  This was one of his favorite workouts as he would call it “Body Armor” as he did it with a 20lb weighted vest.
