Confusion, Part 1
b. The Bronze Star Medal is awarded to any person who, while serving in any capacity in or with the Army of the United States after 6 December 1941, distinguished himself or herself by heroic or meritorious achievement or service, not involving participation in aerial flight, in connection with military operations against an armed enemy; or while engaged in military operations involving conflict with an opposing armed force in which the United States is not a belligerent party.

I'm sure everyone is glad to see that Pfc. Lynch has returned to her hometown and its 15% unemployment rate, but there's something about the event that's confusing me. She was awarded a Purple Heart, a Prisoner of War medal, and a Bronze Star. The quote above is the qualifications for a Bronze Star as per Chapter 3, Army Regulation 600-8-22 (Military Awards). What did she do, exactly, to earn that medal?
