Hi, Kenney ! Yes, it has been a while. I may be mistaken, but it seems that I have come acrossthis before. Some units were identified as having been in critical situations which had not been identified as such previously, resulting in the awarding of medals on a retroactive basis. Those may have involved a unit, or they may have involved individual GIs. If I am wrong on this, I'm sorry, but I really don't think I am. I'd pursue it if I were you. Louie.
