The Congressional Medal of Honor is the highest award for valor in action against an enemy force which can be bestowed upon an individual serving in the Armed Services of the United States. PFC Milton Olive III was only 18 at the time of his death in Vietnam, but his heroic acts were so great, that the City of Chicago has honored him in two ways. Chicago is home to Olive Park and Olive-Harvey College both named for this brave soldier. When you arrive at Part 1 of this 2 part multi-cache, please take some time to read the entire plaque. It is the citation that was issued when Milton L. Olive received the Congressional Medal of Honor posthumously. The answers to the following equations can be found on the plaque.Year on Line 33 - Year on Line 2 + 501 = AAA. Number on Line 14 + Number on Line 16 + 33 = BBB.
