A WD AGO Form 66-1 lists the award according to GO 341, dated 15 November 1943.
However, on his WD AGO Form 53-98 it does not reveal the Silver Star Medal.
Captain Wells is now deceased, but his daughter would like to have evidence her late father is officially listed as a Silver Star Medal recipient.
