That listing "Tarver, Henry, Pfc, BS R.A.CE., Brookland, Tex." indicates that he earned battle stars for the Rhineland, Ardennes (Battle of the Bulge), and Central Europe operations during the European-African-Middle East Campaign. To avoid confusion the Rhineland, Ardennes, and Central Europe battle stars are often referred to as campaigns in which the 84th Division was involved. In each of these operations there were many "battle" actions of one form or another that are called battles in common parlance but recognized as such only in the three broad categories of Rhineland, Ardennes, and Central Europe. The listing, BS, also indicates that he was awarded a Bronze Star Medal, which is awarded for acts of valor or meritorious service during combat.
There is no "After Hostilities Report" as such. There are a wide variety of reports of one form or another in a variety of locations depending upon the line of research that one is pursuing. It it a pretty complicated area depending upon one's research questions and the overall objective. You have my permission to use any of my published or unpublished material in any way you wish.
I am thankful to be in relatively fair health at the age of 91 and glad that you father's health has improved.
Congratulations on your work on a book a about your father's World War II service. Everyone should do that to the extent possible so that pertinent records for each of our contributions are left for the future.
All the best to your Dad.
Company K, 335th Infantry, 84th Division
