Listing of Foreign Awards

Some of the governments of Europe have authorized medals for personnel of the US Armed Forces who participated in the liberation of Europe. Because of the number of personnel concerned, it is not economically possible for those governments to issue the medals to each individual. However, the eligible veterans may be able to purchase them.
