 John L. Lewis - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
John Llewellyn Lewis ( February 12, 1880 - June 11, 1969) was a labor leader who served as president of the United Mine Workers of America ( UMWA) from 1920 to 1960.
He was the driving force behind the founding of the Congress of Industrial Organizations, which established the United Steel Workers of America and helped organize millions of other industrial workers in the 1930s.
Lewis was a despotic leader of the Mine Workers: he expelled his political rivals within the UMWA, such as John Brophy and Adolph Germer, and bullied those whom he did not drive out.

 Axis History Forum :: View topic - winners of military merit cross 3rd class with decorations
I think that John has every right to ask his question here because, although it doesn't pertain directly to Imperial awards, it stands to reason that some of the people here who are interested in Axis awards - quite a wide subject - might be able to help with with an Imperial-related query.
Besides, John's comment "why have a badges and decorations section on here then" indicates that he most likely did not even realize this forum was for 3rd Reich awards only.
Besides, as I said, if I offended John inadvertently, it would be between me and him, I doubt he needs a Keating in shining armor to champion for him.
