On arrival in France, this unit was transferred into the French command, so its decorations are French rather than American. This unit was extremely well decorated, receiving unit and numerous individual citations including Croix de Guerre and Légion d'honneur. The 371st Regiment was seconded to the 157th Infantry Division, and called the Red Hand Division, under the command of General Mariano Goybet.
