World War II - Air Force Cross
There are 2 recipients of the Air Force Cross which was awarded for exemplary and heroic service during World War II.
Both of the men awarded were belated presentations. Major Drew was nominated for the Distinguished Service Cross (DSC) during World War II, and it was denied. Decades later when new information was uncovered, his nomination for the DSC was revived and, since the Air Force now had its own award equal to the DSC, he received the Air Force Cross. Similar circumstances led to the award for William Sloan on or near the year 2000.
