Brian, I'm don't think Charlie Fronzek is correct in his observation that, "The Bronze Star is awarded for meritorious service not for valor". The decoration was awarded both for meritorious service AND for valor, depending upon the circumstances. If it was awarded for valor, a "V" device was authorized and included with the medal. For more info see this web page: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bronze_Star_Medalhttp://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bronze_Star_Medal I would concur with his reservation about a list of recipients. You might be able to find info about the circumstances under which it was awarded, but it would no doubt take some real digging, such as going through unit morning reports, or other archives. I have no experience at all with those resources, but perhaps other, more informed forum participants can help you further.
