Military Decorations and Awards

What are they and what were they awarded for?

Combat Infantryman Badge awarded to enlisted soldiers and junior officers only who actually served in combat during World War II. The criteria for this award was so stringent that, after the war, the Army reviewed the criteria and decided that anyone who earned the CIB during the war had also met the criteria for the Bronze Star Medal and made the award automatically.
