    Default Unknown medal with purple laurels

    I found this medal among several others belonging to my uncle who served in the US Army in WWII and also fought with a French division.

    This may not even be a military medal, but I have Googled til my eyes are crossing and cannot find anything like it.

    I've attached a photo. It's the purple one.
    Many thanks !

    Ah! That's got to be it. Makes sense, as my uncle was also a college professor and we did find some other academic medals among his things.
    Thanks so much!
