Bronze Stars in WW2 question.
Googled Bronze Star on net and saw some Bronze Star forum dialog on this site, and was hoping to gain some insight. My father was in WW2 with General Patton's 4th Armored Division. He never really talked about WW2, yet he talked about the levity of the experince all the time. My father passed away years ago and after my mother passed recently I recieved and looked at my father's discharge papers. Among other things my Father has 7 bronze stars listed on his discharge papers. To me 7 bronze stars seems to be an unusaully large number of bronze stars? Have been told that most records of the WW2 bronze stars were destoyed in a DC building fire?
Just trying to gather info and better understand. ANy insight would be appreciated. Thank you.
