After I posted I realized my mistake, there are several other photos of that ceremony from May 1942. I originally thought it was for Pearl Harbor only, but it must have been a general ceremony for all the actions from Dec 7th up to May of 1942.
Wade McCluskey is the 5th to the right of Miller, shown receiving his award from Nimitz. I would still like to lnow who the other officers are.

Here's a link from The Naval History site.

David / Mike

I think I have this information somewhere regarding the indentity of the individuals in the photos.  Got it from Cressman ages ago (15+ years) when he was doing research in some decoration citations.

The neat trick is going to be finding it in this study of mine, but I will try.

I had thought the photo was in Bob's Yorktown and/or Midway books but it wasn't included in either of those works.  Will have to start digging.  I think that they were all Midway related personnel, except for Miller.

I think Roger Mehle is one of the individuals in the photo, tho I am not sure I can tell which from the photo posted.

I seem to remember reading the names of five or six of the guys in the photo, maybe in FIRST TEAM?

All,

I knew that I had this photo information somewhere.  I had a photocopy of the mountcard in my filing for the "Steady Nerves and Stout Hearts" book.  The listing of the eight officers in line with Miller is as follows (L-R):

80G-80430 - NARS, Still Picture Branch
This is likely the best image of the group from this extensive series.
Capt. George D. Murray
Lieut.Cdr. W.L. Anderson
Lieut.Cdr. W.S. Veeder
Lieut.Cdr. C.W. Wilkins
Lieut.Cdr. Clarence W. McCluskey, Jr.
Lieut. Roger W. Mehle ("Mohle" on mount card)
Lieut.(jg) Norman J. Kleiss ("N.K." on mount card)
Lieut.(jg) Cleo J. Dobson
MAtt2c Doris Miller (MAtt1c on mount card.  It is possible he had been promoted by May.)

Regards,

Mike Wenger
Raleigh, NC

I received information that The Pittsburgh Courier newspaper petitioned President Roosevelt and Miller was awarded the Congressional Medal of Honor after he was killed on the Liscombe Bay. ???

Hi All,
   I knew it was on one of the web links you gave me. This is from the Frequently asked questions site. It says Dorrie got the Navy Cross and gives the story. It has a lot of info on it period.
