Colonel Moorcroft has U.S. Army awards and ribbons that are out of Precedence. He has been awarded the Distinguished Service Medal which is the fourth highest ribbon a military member can earn. Instead of being in the top row it is in the middle of the middle row. It should be placed as his very first ribbon, top row closest to his heart. See more »

25 October 2016 Film of Choice at The Plaza Dorchester This Afternoon - Jack Reacher Never Go Back. Tom Cruise returns in the title role and plays the hero part with aplomb. The film begins, continues and ends with action and intrigue. In this outing Reacher has to uncover a government conspiracy to clear his name and that of a colleague. A complicated plot entwines itself around the characters and it takes a little concentration not to get lost. There is however a rather refreshing chase scene that doesn't involve a single car. Highly watchable but not as good as the first film. Always easy to watch Tom Cruise when he's strutting his stuff, whatever the plot.
