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. ..
