Colonel Earl D. Raab, son of Mr. and Mrs. Jesse M. Raab, was presented the Meritorious Service Medal, the nation's third highest peacetime award, on Friday, Feb. 21, 1970, by Major General James A. Weir, Fitzsimmons General Hospital commander for exceptionally meritorious service as Chief Purchasing and Contracting Branch, Fitzsimmons General Hospital, since July 1967.
Coming at the end of more than 28 years of active Federal Service, the citation stated that "Colonel Raab was faced with an increased procurement workload due to the influx of casualties from Southeast Asia. Displaying great technical expertise and exceptional managerial ability, he realized the procurement workflow to insure the most efficient methods and techniques were used to accomplish the Purchasing and Contracting Branch's Mission."
