      The OSS Society, Inc.Jay was a great friend of Maria's. He tried to help us in recent get Maria the Distinguished Service Medal which the OSS recommended for Maria in 1945 but which was denied by the Pentagon. They gave her a bronze star. We never succeeded in getting the nomination restored. Jim
