Monterey PeninsulaHerald, CA Feb. 6, 1946 p2
Col. Clifford B. Cole – husband of Mrs. Ruth H. Cole of Pacific Grove, was recently presented with the Legion of Merit Medal and the Oak Leaf Cluster to the Air Medal by General Mark W. Clark, commanding general of the U.S. forces in Austria. The ceremony was held in Vienna. Col. Cole, a veteran of 24 months of oversears’ service, wears also three battle stars for World War I and four for World War II, the Bronze Star Medal and Oak Leaf Cluster, the French Croix de Guerre with palm. He was one of 30 officers recently selected to attend the first safety officers’ training school in the European theater at Romilly, France. Upon completion of the course, Col. Cole, who commanded the 144th Field Artillery Group and is safety director for U.S. forces in Austria, returned to set up a similar school for safety officers in his command.
