My father Clyde Fleming was part of 82nd Armed medical company. He received 2 Bronze stars. When I asked him why he got them he said everyone in his unit got them it was no big deal, he never did tell us the reason, just wondering if anyone knew.

He is also the guy on the right side without a shirt in the color picture on the front page.

Hello,

I'm not aware of everyone in the 82nd Armored Medical Battalion (AMB) receiving 2 Bronze Stars unless you are talking about the Bronze Service Stars that are affixed to the European-African-Middle Eastern Campaign Medal. Those indicate participation in two European Campaigns, probably Rhineland and Central Europe, and yes, everyone who was in the unit when the unit served in those campaigns were awarded those service stars. They a different than the Bronze Star Medal which was an individual award issued for heroism or significant meritorious service. You mention a picture. Where is it?
