Re: Reqs. for Combat Infantry Badge
Kenny - I knew that was coming! I wish I knew one. The two I have- Don sent me the one about the Purple Heart which he was given soon after receiving it. The other was mentioned by # and unit on a paper called "Record of Service". Recently I have learned that no other officer of the 893rd had such a "Record". It was a hand written confidential copy made by some one in headquarters of his battalion to replace the records that would have been in the jacket(a heavy manila flapped envelope for officers to store necessary papers) that was lost in a train wreck in Germany. I was able to get that one through NARA by asking for it by unit name and GO #.
They should be mentioned on a soldier's Morning Report. Norm knows about them. He posts on this site. Maybe you could go from there. Sorry! Mary
