As far as I know, there is no list for recipients of the Bronze Star Medal from WWII. The reason for this is, unlike higher awards that are awarded strictly for combat actions (Medal of Honor, Distinguished Service Cross, Distinguished Service Medal- which have lists of recipients) the Bronze Star Medal may be awarded also for non-combat reasons. Because of this, the list would be extraordinarily long, particularly for a period of war.
There IS such a thing as the Congressional Medal of Merit, it's just not a military award. It is an award that may be made by any US Congressman at his/her own discretion to anyone he/she deems fit for the award.
