From World War I to today, over 15,000 military decorations were awarded to men of the U.S. 16th Infantry Regiment for military valor. From the links below you will find an alphabetical index of recipients of these awards and decorations. All recipients in the database are verified by source material such as official award citations, narratives and/or synopses from individuals or records from the National Archives. Although incomplete, the records contain data of a large majority of the individual award citations of 16th Infantrymen from World War I to the present day. Absence of a name for a particular medal does not mean someone did not receive it, only that we have not yet verified that award.
The Soldier’s Medal is awarded for heroism not involving actual conflict with an enemy.
