Do you have a copy of his discharge papers or any other information on his service?

I have a copy of the General Order awarding him the Bronze Star. I'll need your email address to send it to you. Without his Discharge I can guess at his other awards but can't say for certain on all. I know he would have been awarded the WWII Victory Medal and the European-African-Middle Eastern Campaign Medal, but not how many campaign stars. He may have qualified for the American Campaign Medal if he spent one year in the Continental US. He may have qualified for the Army of Occupation Medal if he spent time in Germany after the war. He probably did qualify for the Combat Infantry Badge. And if he was wounded he would have been awarded the Purple Heart. It's also possible he was awarded the Good Conduct Medal. We do need his WD AGO Form 53-55, Enlisted Service Record and Honorable discharge to tell. Please post your email address and I'll send you his award citation. I can't post it here.
