Blackhawk Pilot Decorated

His initial award was the Silver Star, but now retired Captain Palumbo had his award upgraded to the Distinguished Service Medal our second highest combat award. Palumbo was a Chief Warrant Officer 3 at the time but retired as a Captain. I haven't seen an explanation but I suspect that he was given a battlefield promotion.
