    Searching for confirmation of WWII DSM to Dutch national

    Dutch Rijks Newbie

      I am trying to confirm that a Dutch National received the Army Distinguished Service Medal during WWII. The family found a citation in the belongings of this now deceased veteran. The citation is dated  June, 25th 1944 (Guadalcanal) and signed by Lieutenant General Lawton J. Collins, Commanding General of the 25th Infantry Division. The Dutch Sergeant served in Company B, 2nd Dutch Infantry Battalion, 332nd. U.S. regimental Combat Team, 25th Infantry Division.. The US Embassy tried to confirm the award with help of the Pentagon but received the reply that no information was found.

      How can we research this soldier and his award?
