    Thanks Chris! What does BMPE translate into English? The CIB can be awarded to foreign personal attached to US Army units as Chris has stated. The CIB has been awarded to foreign personal during the Korean War, Vietnam and the current war(s) ibn the Middle East. Not a common award however. Best, Greg
