21 Meritorious Service Medal 1996 Fred Cota for his work with the battle of Aiken, 2 years running. Fred is a very diligent and hard working individual who kept things on track and smoothed over many personality conflicts. His dedication to the effort in itself is worthy of award, but his tenacity of getting the job accomplished is the work above and beyond the call of duty. The real reason I would like to see Fred be recognized is that here is a man, that is a construction worker who has very few administration skills, only a little leadership experience and he takes a bunch of hard heads and gets them to put on a production like the battle of Aiken. He also concentrates on the true history and education for the kids and really push for the non commercialization of the battle and put it on for the right reasons. His motivation was also for his ancestor honor, not glory.
