J P Johnston - I am really very sure but I can't quote my reference. I was disturbed that my husband's Bronze Star award had no V for valor since the citation that came with it and the copy of the V Corp GO had the award listed as one for valor. I have been on this stuff since 1990, at least, and right after 9/11 a number of sites disappeared. The site was one listed "Bronze Star?" but I no longer remember who posted it. If a V for valor had been in existance then a special mention of it would have been on the GO or another GO would have had to be written. I have seen none for the V during WWII.
I'll look further for my site.
I have not used the site you quote but believe it is a more recent one. Maybe you should ask them about their source- maybe. Let me know. Mary
