Konik, Lawrence R. (2 AUG 1951)
Private First Class Lawrence R. Konik, son of Mrs. Margaret J. Konik, Route 2, Owen (Clark Co., Wis.), has been awarded the Combat Infantryman’s Badge in Korea while serving as an infantryman with the 5th Calvary Regiment.
This badge, which is only awarded frontline combat infantrymen, distinguishes the actual fighting man from the rear area and service troops in a combat zone. A soldier must be a member of an infantry regiment to be eligible to receive it.
The badge itself consists of a miniature replica of a Revolutionary War flint-lock rifle on a rectangular blue background superimposed over a wreath. It is worn by the soldier over his left breast pocket above his campaign ribbons.
