This is another great medal. Do you know how many of these were awarded? Enlisted and NCOs could not be awarded this medal?

Unfortunately I have no way of knowing how many were because the medal was awarded to civilians in the war effort.
In the decree of 1944 the Medal of War was approved only for senior officials.

But it was also granted to American instructors (NCO), but not for the soldiers and sergeants Brazilians.
I will never understand this injustice. ..

I hope that this injustice is corrected before it is too late. I feel that these heroes of Brazil deserve such an honor.

Later this medal was awarded to the Sargeants too. I do not know exactly when, but I think in 1946.
