On the previous page you were able to access the citations for those earning The Medal
of Honor and The Distinguished Service Cross, thereby being able to read of the
individual exploits that earned those awards.

It occurred to me as I was screening all of the 63rd Infantry Division General Orders that
there are several thousand individual acts of heroism described in those orders that very
few people have ever had a chance to read and appreciate those acts of heroism and the
soldiers that committed them.  So I am undertaking a task that may well outlast me, but I
am going to include
access to the citations for award of the Silver Star Medal, the
Soldier's Medal and the Bronze Star Medal for V
alor or Heroic achievement on page 5 of
this section
..  Some of the citations will appear on page 4 of this section..

I hope that you will be as impressed with the unselfish acts of gallantry and heroism
performed by soldiers of the 63rd Infantry Division as I am.
