At time of discharge, the DD214 form would list the awards and decorations of the veteren. This was a very important document for them to keep so a review of their personal records could help you. Even with that, some decorations may not have been listed as they weren't notified or awarded prior to their discharge. We occassionally see in the news were a veteren receives an award many years or decades after the fact because of some lost records.
