I am his Great Granddaughter. I recently found a small newspaper clipping and this is what it says. I would love to find out more information. "A truck driver for the quarter-master truck company, John U. Ferdinand, a T-5 took part in Normandy, Northern France, Rhineland, Central Europe. He has the EAME theater ribbon with 4 bronze stars, American Theater Ribbon, American Defense Service medal, Good Conduct ribbon, and World War 2 Victory Medal."
