The "Virtuti Militari" is a Polish medal that is equivalent to the American Medal of Honor. This page has a list of the recipients. Antoni Dunin was my grandfather, who died in battle as a First Lieutenant at the age of 32, during the German Blitzkrieg. Our family history was pretty much shredded by World War II, so bit by bit, I'm piecing it back together. I don't know the details of why he was awarded this medal, but someday I will find out . . .
