      I hope and pray y'all get some info. My father in law was in WWII, but he past a few years ago. I can remember bits of him telling me of his times while there. My son completed a report for school about his times in WWII. I still have his little notebook/address book of some of the guys/friends there. If i see your great uncles name in any of the notebooks or true happenings he told his grandson (which I voice recorded also), I'll let you know

      Here the Australian War Memorial retains all records of service, including all paperwork involved in awarding special awards for bravery. I would imagine there would be a similar library kept in the US, and would be surprised if you couldn't check records on line.
      Worthwhile trying to find out more information about your brave relative.
