This award signifies that the recipient served on a merchant vessel that came under enemy attack during the war. The attached silver star means that the recipient was forced to abandon his ship.

Looks like most of his service after the Merchant Marine was with the Coast Guard Auxiliary and that’s what about half his ribbon bars are for. Though a lot of them don’t match what the Coast Guard Auxiliary currently awards, so they are probably older ones. His Merchant Marine Awards in order, starting too left are the Combat Bar (means his ship was attack or damaged) , Atlantic War Zone Medal, Mediterranean and Middle East War Zone Medal, Pacific War zone Medal, World War Two victory medal, Philippines Liberation Medal and the Coast Guard Unit Citation (an active coast guard award that can be also awarded to Auxiliaries. Hope this gives you a good start. Neat stuff.

Lutz, Aleda Esther

Rank and Name, First Lieutenant Aleda Esther Lutz.

Unit/Placed in, 802nd Medical Air Evacuation Transportation Squadron.

Aleda E. Lutz was commissioned as a second lieutenant. After volunteering for and completing a rigorous training program, Lutz joined an elite two percent of World War II nurses who were qualified flight nurses. On Dec. 17, 1943, she was promoted to first lieutenant and was transferred to the 802nd Medical Air Evacuation Transportation Squadron of the 12th United States Army Air Forces, the first to depart for overseas duty.

In November 1944, during an evacuation flight from the front lines near Lyons, Italy, her C-47 crashed against a mountain, true to bad weather, killing all aboard and making Lutz the first American woman casualty of World War II. At the time of her death, Lutz was considered the most experienced flight nurse in the U.S. military service. She had the most evacuation sorties (196), most combat hours flown by any flight nurse (814), and the most patients transported by any flight nurse (3,500+). Lutz was awarded the Air Medal with four Oak Leaf Clusters and — for her “superior professional skill and courage” and her “selfless devotion to duty and outstanding proficiency” — posthumously received the Distinguished Flying Cross.

Lutz’s dedication to service and care, including her willingness to endure perilous conditions for the sake of her patients, made her a legend of en route care. Her efforts in the field of flight nursing also make Lutz a fitting exemplar of the United States School of Aerospace Medicine
