Ceremony where the Belgian Government awarded the 101st Airborne Division the Belgian Fourragére, cited in the Order of the Day of the Belgian Army for action in France and Belgium. The Belgian Fourragére could be awarded by the Belgian Government if a unit was cited twice in the Order of the Day; however, award of the Fourragére was not automatic and required a specific decree of the Belgian Government.
