In Response To: Documentary........Black Soldier Blues ()
When I contacted the Corp of Engineers to find out information regarding award my father recieved, they had no information and mentioned this movie. My father was a member of the 91st Engineers (General Service Regement) Company B, which arrived in Austraila April off 1942. They recieved a Presidentail Unit Citation (AKA Distinguished Unit Citation) (which is the medal just below a "Medal of Honor" Criteria: Unit must display usch gallantry, determination, and espirt de corps in accomplishing its mission under extremely difficult and hazardous conditions as to set it apart and above other units participating in the same campaign. The degree of herosim required is the same as that which would warrant award of a Distinguished Service Cross to an individual"
Yet I can not find a citation for what earned his unit this distintion. I wonder if any one else has any info.
