World War II Medal Citations and Letters of Commendation Banner
us flag

These citations and letters of commendation
commemorate the work of the Coast and Geodetic Survey during the critical years of the Second World War. During World War II Coast and Geodetic Survey Officers served in all branches of the Armed Services. In particular, they provided invaluable service as Army and Marine artillery surveyors, as hydrographers and surveyors for the Navy and Army amphibious units, and as reconnaissance officers in the development of air routes and aeronautical charts for the Army Air Forces. In these duties, they often worked in advance of the front lines. For those that stayed at home, they helped produce millions of maps and charts for Allied forces and were a major factor in putting ordnance on target and moving men and material.
