I picked up this 30th Infantry Division "Battle Honors" document this weekend.  It's not named, so I presume it was given to all members of the 2nd Battalion, 120th Infantry Regiment, for their heroics during the battle for Mortain, specifically Hill 314.  The document is stamped with the official seal of "Headquarters, Thirtieth Division" and is signed by Major General L.S. Hobbs.

That is very neat!  Never saw something like that before for that division!  Nice find.
