    This is a very interesting little group. Apparently, the Steuben Society of America is still with us. The first paragraph of their "History" page on their web site reads:

    "The Steuben Society of America, founded in 1919, is an educational, fraternal, and patriotic organization of American citizens of German background. "

    That means that the recipient of this Iron Cross was either an American of German descent, or a German who moved to America and became a citizen. Given the anti-German fervor whipped up during WW1, and the rise of the Nazis not long after that, this guy must have gone through some uncomfortable times!
