    Default Question regarding ostmedaille recipients

    I woud like to ask, was the ostmedaille awarded only to Heer and Waffen-SS personnel or could it also be awarded to Allgemeine-SS, for example, an SD man for serving 60 days in a combat zone despite not taking part in actual combat?

    14 days of Combat participation
    60 days service in a combat zone (even if not in combat participation)

    Italians & Romanians, as well as volunteers from invaded eastern territories were entitled too. Stewy
