I'm a docent at Spring Grove Cemetery in Cincinnati, OH. I'm trying to put together a tour commemorating WWI veterans. I have a list of those buried here, and a list of those who earned awards during the conflict. I'm trying to find out what they did to earn the metals and commendations (Distinguished Service Cross, Silver Star, ect.). Does anyone know how to go about finding this information? I have about 20 names I would like to research.
Dear Ms. Isch,
Thank you for posting your request on History Hub!
We suggest that you consult the information on the Department of Defense Military Awards for Valor website. It provides a description of the awards and lists the recipients for each award depending on the war and which branch of the Armed Services.
We hope this is helpful. Best of luck with your research!
