My father, Tech Sergeant Cecil R. Fullerton, was a tank
commander in A Company, 3rd Platoon, and his was the first
Marine tank to knock out a North Korean T-34 at the battle
of Obong-Ni Ridge in 1950. He received his Bronze Star
Medal with a V for Valor for an incident as his tank was
approaching the bend in the road where they would soon face
the North Korean tanks. After refueling, my father's tank
approached a bend in the road where they were to set up an
ambush. On the way, the road was blocked by a loaded
ammunition truck that had evidently been abandoned. Not
wanting to risk pushing it off the road with their tank, my
dad exited his tank, giving instructions to his gunner to
keep the gun trained on the bend up ahead and shoot
anything that came around it, not waiting for him to return
and give a command to fire. He then ran to the ammo truck,
drove it off the road and out of the way, and was able to
return to his tank just a minute before the engagement
began. His tank, A34 along with A35 of Sergeant Swinecke
destroyed 3 North Korean tanks and a fourth was destroyed
by bazookas and recoilless rifles as it retreated.
My father is still alive and well and living in Ohio. He is
87 years old.

My father, Lawrence Collins, Jr. of Washington, D.C., was
in the Korean War and received a Bronze Star for his
service. My father is 86 years old and living. His date
of birth is April 25, 1928. Once confirmed, can another
one be issued as the original Bronze Star is no longer in
his possession. Thank you.

TIM SMITH wrote on June 13, 2013
Found record of my Fathers that outlined his heroic actions
during the war. He was awarded the Bronze Star Medal.
Corporal Thomas L. Smith, RA13359052, Army Medical Service, United States Army.
A member of Medical Company,32d Infantry, distinguished himself by heroic
movement near Paeam; Korea.
On 7 December 1951, the command post of the tank company was subjected to severe
intense enemy shelling which inflicted many casualties among the personnel
manning the post.
As the shelling began Corporal Smith, with complete disregard for his personal
safety, immediately began to move from position to position in the impact area
searching for the wounded and treating their injuries.
Continuously exposing himself with unconcern for the exploding shells, Corporal
Smith administered to all of the wounded, and directed their evacuation to
safety. Through his great courage and bravery, all of the casualties received
prompt medical treatment and evacuation.
The heroic action displayed by Corporal Smith reflects great credit on himself,
and the military Service. Entered in the Federal service from the State of
By Command of Major General Lemnitzer:
Official: R.L Harrison Lt Col AGC Adjutant General
Royal Reynolds Jr. Colonel GS Chief of Staff

I am trying to get my grandfathers name on the Bronze Star Recipient list. It
doesn't seem as easy as the Purple Heart list. This is very frustrating and
Such an honor should be easily documented and should be public record.
Does anyone know how to go about doing this???

from 1950 to 1952. 40th Signal Company APO 6 FEC.
Cognizant District or Area Command was Fifth Army Area.
Place of separation was Camp Carson Colorado October 20,

Hello, My stepfather died two days ago and while looking
through his records we found paperwork that he was honorably
discharged from the US Army on 9/4/1953, and also on 28 Dec
1959, I am guessing he enlisted twice? There was also record
that he received three bronze stars whilst in service. Like
so many others I would love to know what he done, I am
imagining it was just the horrific environmental conditions
they had to live through that would be enough to award them
this medal. His name was Donald Louis Henneman, Born 1929.
He can be found on the Lyman county South Dakota military
file, but their are no details. Hope someone can help. Also
we could not find any medals.

My father in law just told us this Christmas Day that he was the recipient of
four Bronze stars during his time in the army in the Korean War. He was
with a Mortor Co. And some of the stories he told made my hair stand on
end. I don't think he has any of the medals that he was awarded and I
seriously doubt that he has any thing as a DD-214 after all these years. Is
there anywhere I can contact that might be able to help? I know that there
used to be a place in St. Louis but I am not sure of how to get hold of them.
Ay help will be greatly appreciated.

My father was awarded the Bronze Star in Korea, I'd like to
be able to view that and read why it was awarded. I am very
proud of him and somewhat upset because I can't find his
name on any list. My fathers name and unit was....
15th Infantry Regiment
3rd Infantry Division
He was awarded the Bronze Star for heroism and devotion to
duty for his actions on June 12th 1953 at a friendly
outpost (Outpost Harry) near Songnae-Dong, Korea

My Father, William E Hunter, Master Seargant, 1st Cavalry,
USArmy, served during both WW II and Korea. I believe he
served for about 12 years ending about 1953 or 1954. He
was awarded a Purple Heart and a Bronze Star, although I
don't know exactly when or where or for which meritorious
act among many he was awarded it. Dad refused to talk
about his service or any experiences during, but most
especially about his service overseas during either war.
When asked he would always say "That's all in the past and
that's where it's going to stay."
After Dad passed away, Mom told us that Dad had be told he
had been approved for a Silver Star, but that is was during
wartime and he never actually recieved the medal, which she
said was common during wartime. Dad would never pursue
getting the medal, nor would he let Mom do that on his
behal--or even mention it to anyone. Soon after, Mom also
passed away, so we never had the chance to find out
When Dad passed and his obituary was in the newspaper,
there were men who came to his service who told us they had
known Dad for 20 years and never even knew he had been in
the service. There was 1 man in particular who said he
used to tell Dad stories of his Navy days and Dad never
said a word about having been in the Army!
I don't know whether to pursue it since Dad was so adament
about letting that entire part of his life stay in the
past. And I have no idea whatsoever when, where or why he
was recommended for the Silver Star--or even if Mom had the
facts straight that he had actually been approved.
No matter, medal or not, William E Hunter was a great
American, a great man, and a wonderful husband and father.
He was very well liked and respected by his employees, his
community and all who knew him and I'm glad I had this
forum to 'talk' about him and let everyone know that the
world is a better place for having had MstSgt W E Hunter in
it for 83 years!

CHRISTOPHER SARLO wrote on April 16, 2012
I may have posted here before, but I will do so again
anyway. My Uncle Tony, Antonio Sarlo, served in the US
ARMY 629th MedEvac unit during the Korean War. According
to his DD 214, he served from 1952-1954 and earned 2 Bronze
Stars. I know that there is a process in place to obtain
the medals for veterans who never physically received them,
but I imagine that there has to be a record/citation for
any medal awarded during military service. Does anyone
know where I might find such records?
He died before I was born and I so there are few that I can
speak with to get this information first hand. It would be
nice to have the historical details to complete information
in our family tree as well.
Any information would be greatly appreciated. Thank you
for your time and consideration.

o/s bars mean overseas bars. they were (are still?) small hash marks worn on the sleeve to indicate time spent overseas. each one denoted 18 months, I think - been a long time since I was introduced to them.

PAUL SQUIRE wrote on October 25, 2005
After doing some work on a Geneology project i undertook about half a year ago, I discovered that my grandfather, Alfonso Truisi, while serving as an mechanic in the 472d in the war was awarded two bronze stars, as well as something called an 'O/S bar' (I don't know what this means, I'm not exactly fluent in military abbreviations. If anyone could tell me what this means, I'd be very thankful.) I tried to get some records on his time in the Army, but like Mary Walden Ware's case, they were burned in a fire. Searches for a list of Bronze star recipients has so far been fruitless. I was wondering if anyone has found a good site yet?
