    French legion of honor medal?

    Thaank YOU! so i did read correctly the wee bit of an article3 on this ! NOW eligible for this French award. Any previous military awards such as the Congressional Medal of Honor, the Silver Star, the Bronze Star, the Purple Heart, etc. would indicate meritorious actions during combat operations. Copies of these documents should be forwarded with the request for consideration " Bill as probly many received the Bronze Star & Purple Heart ..Copies of Documents what would they consider? I have the purple heart & bronze star awards that were of course posthumously is there a Form or do we just 'write'.. thank you so much for this page of information! kitty

    291st Engineer Combat Battalion Roster

    Did this post in 2011 Ever find that Roster??
  13. the 291st joined the 51st and 202nd Combat Engineer Battalions, forming the 1111th Engineer Group attached to the US V Corps. The group followed in the charge across France, rebuilding bridges destroyed by the Germans.

    December 1944 found the 291st sprawled across a large but relatively quiet sector in Belgium. Elements were stationed in Malmédy, Stavelot, La Gleize, and Trois-Ponts among other smaller outposts.

    The 291st received a Presidential Citation for its "outstanding performance of duty in action" for holding a defensive position against a German offensive from 17 December to 26 December in the Ardennes during the Battle of the Bulge:

    So Now I know  a little more of the otherr Units they Blended with.
