Not for an officer, unless he'd previously served as an enlisted man.

The good conduct is for enlisted folks, not officers. I guess they're expected to behave without getting awarded for it.

Those were no longer issued in the Army, when I was in the Guard from '89-'96, as far as I know. Qualified "expert" with rifles on ranges a few times, but my previous instructors in hillbilly living wouldn't consider that score under those conditions to be expert at all. ;-) No big deal, for real. More so on police range pistol qualifications. Fired all kinds of other junk for the Guard. Still no expert here.

I don't see anything in the info about Dornan indicating anything in the way of ground combat training, which is about all that we did. [Que Jamaican coworker on a construction labor job once saying, "It's slavery, mon!"]

But I wasn't in the Navy. Dornan was a lieutenant. That would be mostly admin stuff by far, I would guess. Probably no soldier there, no commando. But the media chicks have to make it all sound as exciting as Dornan did in his manifesto or whatever.

Officers don’t earn “Good Conduct MEDALS.”

Yeah I also was wondering about the lack of any individual awards. I don’t see any that jumped out at me as something other than “I was sent here” or “ I was sent there” and I belong to this unit or that unit.
