BRONZE STAR GALLERY

 

The purpose of this gallery is to give recognition to those Marines who received the Bronze Star, or Bronze Star w/Combat V, while serving with the 3rd Reconnaissance Battalion in Vietnam. Compiling this listing is a very difficult task, due to the poor centralized records available from the Marine Corps. Those Recon Marines who received the BSV should be remembered, in a unit listing, to preserve our legacy.

When the award time frame spans more then one date the latest date is shown.

This listing contains only "enlisted" recipients. There are many names missing.
If you received the Bronze Star or Bronze Star Medal w/ "V" and your name does not appear here please contact
