Re: Reqs. for Combat Infantry Badge
Kenny - I've asked many veterans of the 90th Division that question. Several of the the men have the CIB and spent less than a week in combat. The consensus was that one day in combat would qualify anyone in an infantry unit.
I know that my father's Company Commander received the CIB and he was wounded in their first battle on June 10, 1944. Dad was wounded the next day and he received it as well.
