Hello. I'm not sure if this is the right place to post this, but I have a couple questions regarding medals my grandfather received during WWII from Jan 45-April 45 (was wounded April 12th at Barby on the Elbe River) in the 83rd Infantry Div, 329th Infantry Reg, 2nd Battalion, G Company. The first is the fact that he received a bronze star. We can not find any information as to why he was awarded this. I've checked the morning reports and after action reports on 83rdinfdivdocs.org but have found nothing. Is there somewhere to go and find why he would have received this medal? Second, as I stated previously, he was not in Europe until roughly Jan 22-23 1945 and was active until April 12th 1945 when he was wounded. He was sent to the evac hospital, and eventually Paris to be tended to. He received the European-African-Middle Eastern Campaign medal which was a unit wide citation, however it was decorated with a Bronze Star Attachment (double). We are not sure why he would have had the Bronze Star Attachment (double) as I believe he was only in one campaign (Central Europe Campaign). Any information would be greatly appreciated.
