  1. I believe that the award Howard Engstrom would be receiving was the distinguished service award for work as Director of the US team assisting the British in developing a faster method for solving the messages intercepted from the German Enigma machine. It was either that one or the medal from the office of the order of the British Empire. He later became Deputy Director of the National Security Agency.
