Awards and Decorations, 17th Airborne Division: 194th GIR Part I

The following is taken from the 17th Airborne History, dated 6 Dec 45, which was compiled by the unit following the end of the war. These documents can be found in the National Archives and were scanned a few years ago for work on the book “Blood on the Talon”. I’ll continue to post the various pages until they are all posted. Please keep in mind that because of clerical errors, awards presented after this history was compiled and to transfers of members of the 17th Airborne Division shortly after VE-Day, this is by no means a complete listing.
