My grandfather was in WWII and I ordered his Military records and it says that he got an Army Occupation Medal(Germany) World war II Victory Ribbon. Does anyone know what these mean? My grandfather was killed in the WV Coal mines when he was 32 and I can remember my father telling me when he was at his fathers funeral he remembers the army doing a 21 gun salute. Do they do that for all Veterans, My grandfather had not been out of the war too ong when he was killed in 1947. Thanks.
