DJSasso's questions here focus attention on one sentence:
- "Hajiro was awarded the Victoria Cross in 1948."<;ref>Sterner, C. Douglas. (2007). Go for Broke, p. 89.</ref>
However, only ENWP is cited as a source by DJSasso.
According to the Honolulu Star-Bulletin, Hajiro was recommended for the Victoria Cross and "the British government gave him the British Military Medal aboard the Canadian destroyer Cayuga in 1948.<:ref>Kakesako, Gregg K. "Honor overdue," Honolulu Star-Bulletin (Hawaii). November 11, 1996; retrieved 2012-12-7.</ref>
- Based on the official book "The Register of the Victoria Cross" (Published by This England Books. 1997). He isn't listed as a recipient of the award. The following website keeps a list of all recipients as well and does not have him listed. -DJSasso (talk) 20:39, 10 December 2012 (UTC)
- Personally I would avoid user the Doug Stenner books if possible as references. I think they are ok as External links or Further reading but I view them much like Find a grave. There ok if there's absolutely nothing else but should be avoided if at all possible and viewed with caution and skepticism. Kumioko (talk) 01:05, 11 December 2012 (UTC)
