Here's a website that might give you a little bit of info. It will tell you the date of when the heroic act was done. It doesn't tell you what for, but it might be a piece of the puzzle. https://www.thepurpleheart.com/roll-of-honor/ Someone on here might be able to push you in the right direction to find out the info you're looking for. There's a sticky at the top of the War Room for former and active service members, I'd ask there. I'm making an assumption here, but I bet the local American Legion would be able to help you out as well.
