Silver Star question.
Today I found a ribbon that I didn't recognize from my dad, in my son's collection of military stuff, that I gave him years ago. I also found dad's European-African-Middle Eastern ribbon with a bronze star, silver star, and an arrowhead. The ribbon that I didn't recognize, I looked up on the web, and it was a silver star medal ribbon. And I wonder if the 3/16 inch silver star on the other was Initial Citation Star. I have no records to agree with this as his military records were destroyed in the 1973 St. Louis fire. My dad died in 1954 and no one remembers much and they didn't talk about the war. I am curious, are there any lists for Silver Medal recipiants?
