Battle of Corregidor
Support towards recognition

Approximately 12,000 American military personnel were involved in ground combat with the enemy during the period of 7 December 1941 to 10 May 1942.

The majority were captured, killed in action or killed in captivity.

Those survived and repatriated during 1945, only a small number were processed properly, and awarded full recognition for combat service as infantrymen. The Bronze Star Medal [with] the Combat Infantryman badge (CIB) were among the awards and decorations.

As recent as 2003, an AAF veteran was presented the CIB by Congressman Patrick Kennedy (RI).

Yet, today, civilian employees of the U.S. Army tend to misinterpret or refuse to follow guidelines approving the CIB to fellow members of like units in accordance with War Department Circulars dated 1943, and 1944.

Most Americans are not aware of their sacrifices. Where is the support for justice?
