Thanks Chris. I did talk to a person at the Army National Personnel Records in St. Louis a couple of days ago. He said it would be near impossible to search the Silver Star records at their end without a "General Order" reference. I have no paper work, just a ribbon. And it may have been given to him by a friend. I have made some connections at the divisional level with a Historian. And I will seek what information is available at that level. When my searches get tough, I go in another direction. "When the going gets tough, the tough get going". I heard that somewhere. Thanks again.
