On Saturday September 23, 2018, the Armenian American Veterans Sam Manoian Post #1
We also presented John with a WWII Pin, a United Stated Combat Flag, and at last a pin; a “Ruptured Duck” which denotes the Honorable discharge from WWII and all wars before and after.
During WWII many served valiantly, and to mention what John and his team have done would not be an easy task.
After dropping the atomic bomb on Hiroshima and then later Nagasaki, SSG Hagop Dulgarian with his US Army team of Intelligence were the first American Army soldiers to step into the Japanese main land, as the occupying US Forces were landing and treaties were being prepared to be signed.
The Citation reads.
This Certificate of appreciation and gratitude with a WWII recognition Pin is presented to
SSG Hagop (John) Dulgarian
By Armenian-American Veterans Organization to acknowledge your service during World War II, in the Pacific Theater, in Japan.
AAV extends its gratefulness to you, your team, and men and women who were the First Americans occupying Japan after the Atomic Bomb.
Your Service is a great source of pride for, Our Community, AAV, Your Peers, Your Unit,
and The United States Army.
The Armenian American Veterans along with all those attended that night greatly appreciated
The Armenian American Veterans would like to thank
the Polish Americans for letting us use their club for the
last 20 years for our meetings. We hope that you will
find a new home soon.
