99. Not only in OER
Someone could forget to include the award in their submission for their OER. However, as a separate process the unit should have submitted, shortly after the unit earned the award, a copy of the award citation and/or authorization to HQ for inclusion in each recipient's official personnel record.

It's possible a personnel clerk could mistakenly leave names off of the award list. It is also possible that the unit's personnel officer and administrative officer would not catch the mistake. Finally, when separating from the service one is required to review their personnel record and presented with an opportunity to correct any mistakes or omissions.

So, there were at least three formal occasions when an omission about the award could have been caught and corrected. Further, his official bio does not include the award. Can't believe it would have been left out when there is so little to crow about miliary service-wise in that bio. it seems most likely that he did not receive it, making the wearing of the ribbon in the photo inappropriate.
