awarded X and not awarded with X.

So left with C,D and E.

I'll go with (E) here

C. the Congressional Medal of Honor, which was the nation’s highest military award, long-overdue in
in is at wrong position, changes the meaning

D. the Congressional Medal of Honor, the nation’s highest military award for longoverdue
doesn't convey the intended meaning

E. the Congressional Medal of Honor, the nation’s highest military award, in longoverdue

Let me try to contribute my 2cents here...just learned smthing abt dash usage....dash is used to set off paranthetical phrase for emhasis or dramatic effect.

So, A & B straight out, it's among CDE as sidbidus said...

C.the Congressional Medal of Honor, which was the nation’s highest military award, long-overdue in changes meaning...
D. the Congressional Medal of Honor, the nation’s highest military award for longoverduechanges meaning...
E. the Congressional Medal of Honor, the nation’s highest military award, in longoverdue

So E....

Thanks!
