Johnson was awarded his Silver Star for that one combat mission on June 9, 1942, on a bombing run in which 11 American B-26s attacked a Japanese base in Lae, New Guinea.
The criteria for the Silver Star, established by law in 1932, state it is "for gallantry in action against an enemy of the United States while engaged in military operations involving conflict with an opposing foreign force" and specify that the "required gallantry...
Johnson's Silver Star citation says, "As our planes neared the target area, they were intercepted by eight hostile fighters." While implying that Johnson's plane was among them, the citation doesn't actually say his B-26 came under fire.

 Roger L. Simon: Silver Star
I think Silver's speech was one of the best of the convention, if only for his righteous indignation and fury at his hypocritical Celebrosphere colleagues.
Compared with the other celebrities on both sides, Silver comes off as supremely knowledgeable (at least on modern historical aspects), he speaks to points rather than vainly trying to score them with put downs or non-sequiturs (unlike Ron Reagan who does no else and therefore has been soundly thrashed by Silver in their conflicts).
Silver shares our host's disdain for the social ideas of the current administration but as far as the security of this country and the world he has been able to lift the blinders of party loyalty and come to a rational conclusion about who should lead this country in the struggle against Islamo-Fascism.
