What medals were awarded to the 9th Infantry in World War 2?
The 39th Infantry Regiment is credited with eight campaigns for the European Theatre of Operations. They are: Algeria-Fr. Morocco (with Arrowhead) Tunisia, Sicily, Normandy, Northern France, Rhineland, Ardennes-Alsace & Central Europe. These would be indicated by one silver star & three bronze stars on his E.T.O. Campaign Ribbon. Your uncle is correct, the 39th did receive the Belgian Fourragere for service in Belgium during WW 2. Please pass along to your uncle this sentiment.
