One of the Army badges that soldiers wear with special pride is the Combat Infantryman badge. It was awarded to Private First Class Ronald C. Anderson, 20, near Pleiku, Vietnam, August 20, 1969.

Pfc. Anderson, son of Mr. and Mrs. Arnold Anderson, route 3, Thorp (Clark Co., Wis.), is assigned as a rifleman in Company C. 3rd Battalion of the 4th Infantry Division’s 8th Infantry.

The CIB has been awarded since late in World War II for sustained ground contact against an enemy.
