FORM DD -619 – After Action Report
Lt. Ryan S. Healy, reporting (continued)
0520 HRS , medic conducts field examination of Cpl. Eisenstein and declares him fit to return to duty. Eisenstein dons daylight gear in time for sunup.
In light of these events, I have ordered cedar stakes discontinued as field equipment for the following reasons:
(1) I suspect that they are ineffective in their intended purpose.
(2) Through his actions and conduct, and through interviews with other team members, Cpl. Eisenstein has earned the trust of this unit.
I further recommend that Cpl. Eisenstein be awarded both the Purple Heart and the Distinguished Service Cross for his action in preventing an ambush of our unit by superior forces. When asked if he could accept DSC , or if such decoration might constitute a harmful religious icon for him, Eisenstein produced a gold Star of David on a chain around his neck.
