I am looking for information on the Bronze Star. I have
recently found records that state my father received two of these medals while serving in WW II. I would like to know what they were awarded for and any other info. My father was a Staff Sergeant, 5th Division, 2nd Infantry Regiment, Co.B and fought in the Ardennes and Central Europe. He was responsible for directing concentrated fire on enemy positions.Some other facts in the records stated that he received EA?? Theater Ribbon, Combat Infantryman Badge,Rifle Marksman, and possibly a Purple Heart. The writing on these records is very difficult to read.
I would appeciate any help on facts stated above.
